I take so many pictures so you guys can learn,

I wasn't born with these skills, I had to work long and hard to develop these skills . You just have to be dedicated and forever willing to keep stepping out of your comfort zone.

Simple hand skills are all that are needed, filing might seem like a simple skill but there is an art to it. If you can perfect that your half way there. This mis conception about filling is that it takes forever, if you file right it's so quick. I seem to wear files out really quick because I take long draw cuts with a lot of pressure.

If you guys need help with anything all you have to do is pm me, I'll answer them on a personal level.

Looking forward to see how you're ridding the rivets. I'm doing whatever I can to skip rivets on mine.

Very simple, I'm going to pull them out fill them with solider.

Soldiering is hard trust me once I have a method down pat I will share with the class.

Finally I've worked out that hydrochloric acid is the best to use to clean steel. So forget the bakers flux.

First step is cleaning the steel, I mean clean sand the back to bare metal. With a paint brush brush on Acid let it do it's work then wash it off.

Guys I'm going to have to start doing videos anyone have ideas how to?

Oh soldering. I see. I'm using Alumnaweld on my project. Bonds extremely well but shoot... can't grind it down to a nice finish like that.

I know someone on Facebook who does all his mods on videos. Very well done. PM me if you want direct link to his Facebook page or YouTube page.

'Eh... what exactly do you mean by that? I could be a smart ass and say with a video camera... but that's just the mood I'm in at the moment. Really, you can use anything that shoots a video, you'd need to use something capable of shooting at like 720 or 1080 but also with high-ish FPS (high 20's to 30's) though because of what you'll be filming and with needing to get in close and provide a clear view of what you're doing, etc. To edit the videos you can pick up some good video editors for free, heck you can even use Windows Movie Maker or something. Doesn't need to be all fancy like.

But yeah, if you could be a little more precise as to what you're really wanting to know, that would help provide a better answer. thinking.gif

Also, quick question. How strong is using solder in metal work?... I do alot of glass, wood and acrylic work, and will be venturing into metal soon. So, what is the use of solder and whatnot in metalwork? I've heard of it being used with metal, but I've always only ever used solder for electronics haha. tongue.gif

Duraweld is another name for it.

It's like soldering but at a much higher temperature. It's not brazing either.
