    Not so much welding but making some of the final tweaks to a water cooler ive been building. Little bit to mess with and holes to drill for the fans and it'll be good.

    Hey Les,

    what about extending the rear tractor hitch plate about 6”then taking the tongue and making it into the shape of and upside down U so the top of the U portion of the tongue sits above the rear fenders almost like a 5th wheeltypetongue. Then all you would have to worry about is cutting into the driver in a jack knife scenario

    ... or a fifth wheel that comes down ahead of the steering column and over your head so you could turn 180's with the tractor...Like I say, this one is getting too close to trade in time to get too fancy, probably just a bolt on hitch extension.

    Hi Fordkid
    The Procon pump has a pressure bypass built in, so you don't need the extra pressure regulator.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Not really welding but tig brazing. I don't know what this thing is called, they mentioned the correct name but I can't recall. Pretty sure it is bronze.
    Had to replace about 2" of the point on the arrow. The one that broke off was rusty steel. I guess is was fixed before. I roughed out a piece of bronze (may have been brass, who knows it was in the scrap pile). Used silicon bronze and dc tig to join the new metal. Then hammered and filed it out.

    Some of that flat work in the circles needed straitening out also.

    That's what I thought but it made little difference, actually that is in there now for just the pressure gauge until I can actually sit down and finish the damn thing. I have a bypass with a ball valve to control the pressure, which I know isn't actually designed for that but it worked. I have to take the tank back to work and purge it and weld another half coupler in.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Well, it's been one of those weeks. I was just finishing up a hook for the loader bucket and I broke my old RAE vise. The casting is good, I just snapped the ACME rod but I know there's none close by so I'll try welding it first to see how long it lasts. Thought I'd see if Dave had taught the Dialarc how to weld threads, but he must have been teaching the students left hand threads because mine needed a lot of grinding. Who won the "Grinder of the Year" award last year? I might be a contender this year. At least I got it working again, we'll see for how long.

    I really like those Canadian RAE vises. Nice fix on the acme thread!

    BTW left hand lead screws are used on "spreading" vises. LOL

    When it comes to vises I believe they don't necessarily use standard Acme profiles

    They may even have their own unique square shoulder threads.

    Henry is also a very nice old Made in Canada vise.

    That is not easy. Did you use part of the break to get the threads clocked?
    I have cut acme external/internal threads single point on the lathe, time consuming.

    Good points. Terry...I was looking at that and wondering if ACME rod is even an option. Threads /inch and the squareness of the shoulders could both be an issue. Even if I can get rod that works, it will still need to be welded into the cap somehow.

    Metalman.... Before I started grinding I put the broken rod in a vise (yea, not the broken one...) and clocked both pieces so the threads lined up. I then took a small hummer disc in the die grinder and made a line along the top of both pieces so I knew where to clock it after the ends were ground back. If you look close you can see part of it ahead of the clamp. I had to be careful not to take much off the very tip since any change in length would put a hickup in the threads. I made a large easy out by grinding a square shaft once, so this was sort of my 2nd attempt at threads with a grinder. Lucky for me a narrow disc was close to the width of the bottom of the thread. Trying to cut a normal bolt thread would be almost impossible... but I'd have dies for most of them... SAE anyway.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Best I remember 4140? is the material. My lathe manual, and other very old books describe in detail the procedure for ACME threads.
    I made a similar screw for a brake I bought from KD Welding. It isn't acme. I believe the difference is in part the shape of the cutting tool.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I picked that old RAE up at an auction all rusty and seized for something like $7. It's been a good vise up until now... my only complaint was that the jaws weren't interchangeable like Terry's nice Henry. Pretty sure any replacements will cost me a lot more now. I had an old broken vise in the corner, but it's only got a 3/4" rod. I guess if I could get an acme rod and maybe 4 matching nuts, I could replace the rod and make a new nut as well. Welding it into the handle assembly is still likely to weaken it though. I assume getting a machine shop to make a rod will cost more than a new vise the way you guys keep describing it as complex and time consuming...

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Posted this in Sam's puller thread but I broke the thread. Oops. Woods mower, the heavy crossbar got bent to where the blades rubbed the top deck, had to cut the pan loose to press it back to straight. The pan had a pretty good cone shape going too. Pressed it all out and welded it back together. Ran fine at full speed after reassembly with new blades. Name:  20210727_130812.jpg

    Manufacturers seemed to have all kinds of offerings back then.

    The RAEs I had all had replaceable jaw inserts but I've seen other makes with solid jaws too.

Size:  71.0 KBmight have shown this box. Working on parts of it again. Did all the welding on it besides the outside main welds. There was a root pass under the plate with a hole in it, just the weld on the inside of the box needs it. Finally got a break from welding today. It's been about all day lately, phone I'm using takes kinda crappy pics, I thought they looked little crappy on camera
