Danger Dan Schools us on Aluminum Welding on the Pit Truck's Rotary

  • Publisert 12. mars. 2019
  • How many jabronies does it take to build a rotary for our pit truck? Just two - two very skilled jabronies. Danger Dan and Vargas give our n/a 13b all the bells and whistles necessary for the stresses that the Worthouse boys will be throwing at this thing. AKA, lots and lots of limiter.

    I don't think "ferrous" means what you think it means, Dan. Iron, steel, typically magnetic stuff, that comes from iron ore. That's ferrous metal.

    you have forget to say to wear long sleeve shirt or welding jacket, because with tig welding you can get a really bad "sun" burn

      It doesn't burn when you have hands made of forged steel. Pretty sure Dan is part Terminator.

    Inverter welders do not need a ball tip. If you have an inverter welder, just grab a purple tungsten and go to town.

    Have you considered getting a UV filter for your camera(s)? Not only can the arc damage the camera, we would actually be able to see what Danger Dan is talking about!

    With these newer inverter style machines its better to use something other than pure tungsten (green). Ceriated and Lanthanated tungsten work best for aluminum. Ceriated holds up to heat really well and lanthanated is great for low amp starts but also holds up to heat better than most. With those tungsten you can sharpen to a point and blunt the tip and the tungsten will maintain its shape as long as you are using a electrode negative biased balance 70-30 or 75-25.

    Don't break the tungsten tip, just grind it back, saves a lot of grinding making a point again and it'll work fine as you'll just grind off all the contaminants.
    Best way is to use a grinder tool like Dan used, but I've seen many welders just grind it on a grinding wheel and make it really fking sharp. (Just make shure the tip isn't too concave)

    1/2 the people commenting on this: "look at me I'm so smart and arrogant that I'm going to be petty over semantics even though I clearly know the terminology he meant to use."
    Go make some videos and see if you don't accidently say the wrong words/terminology every now and then. Then reshoot the segment try to edit it in in a way that isn't noticeable and see if the wasted time is negligible or maybe just not edit it and let the Mr. Knowitalls just get your vid a bunch of comments = win for hoonigan hahah.

    If you weld a fitting like that, you might as well enlarge the hole up to the tip.

    having the dial indicator at an angle will introduce a cosine error, .002" isn't much so its important to keep the indicator straight. Vargas needs to invest in a Noga holder.

    Indicators should always be used square to the indicating surface. Because .002" @ a 30* angle on an indicator isn't .002" with the indicator squared up on the measuring surface.

    Really holding back from commenting on welding tips 🤐 but I'm weak for cash alloy I always change the ac balance so it's not pulling as much impurities out and always use pulse setting 2,2hz with alloy so u can run max amps. But good work dan is killing it can't wait to see this brap pit riping donuts 🤘

    I’ve yet to weld aluminum but it makes cool sounds. Thought with pure tung you don’t need to grind in to a point. Even with no point it still balls up but I guess it’s just harder to start the arc like that.
