This goes under the “DW’s Popular Pages” category because it’s a nicely put together video telling the story of a group of friends building a purpose-built car. It reminded me of a post I made a while back on purpose-built cars.
Description from the video: “The story of a group of guys who, on a $100 bet, and in only ten months, designed, engineered, & fabricated a flathead four cylinder 1928 Dodge Roadster and set a few land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats.”
In this video, I talk about keeping the torch steady by setting up a ‘tripod’ with your wrist. I also give some reasons for my affection towards my skinny torch.
This is a short little video on keeping things steady when you’re tig welding… specifically the filler rod. A new rod is 3′ long and quite floppy when you’re holding it at one end, so I thought this little tip may help at least someone keep that filler rod steady.
I’m on my way! First YouTube, now MyRideisMe.com! OK, YouTube on MyRideisMe.com. Same difference.
Welding With DW (WWDW) is a series of videos I’ll be shooting over the next 10 to 15 years (whichever Pikesan signs the contract for) focusing on little things that have helped me weld over the years. I’m even going to try and avoid calling them “how-to” videos, implying that this is how you should do it. Instead, they’re more like “how-I-do-it” videos.
This first video covers a little bit on how I hold a tig torch. Enjoy!
We’re teaming up with Craig Pike at MyRideIsMe.com to bring you a series (not sure how many… but lots) of videos basically summarizing tips and helpful bits of info about welding. I’m not going to tell you what type of gas to use, what diameter your tungsten should be for certain thicknesses of metal, or what face you should make to get a better weld. That info is available from every welding product sales rep across the country.
I started thinking of this in terms of a service to our customers, but it soon grew as Craig got involved and mentioned that he would love to have the videos on myrideisme.com too.
Stay tuned – we’ll let you know when the first videos are available.
In the mean time, check out our YouTube site to see 60 videos (more coming!) that have been viewed almost 250 000 times!
