    factor in the cost of labor (push to connect Vs. soldered joints), and its a runaway winner. I guess if you are a hobbyist with all the time in the world it doesn't matter, but for anyone else it...

    To the OP, personally, I would use the blue plastic stuff, made for air distribution. Much, much easer to put together. (If I used copper, I would tend to go with type K And silver braze it)

    sorry guys, but if you are seriously thinking you could actually single point turn a tape head, you have absolutely NO idea what they are made of, or what they do (or you are trolling us :D).

    wrong gear on the threading dial?

    well this is a new one to me. I hadn't done single point threading on the Angellini MAS165 I acquired last year yet, and was cutting some 14 tip internal threads. figured since its a 4tpi leadscrew,...

    don't heat fasteners over 850F, period. even if they are not heat treated, the cold work properties, if present, will be destroyed.

    I wouldn't weld on the balljoint itself as that will take the temper out of the steel, or worse yet, embrittle it. either way, you are creating a "break here" situation, and asking for a catastrophic...

    Good advice above. I’d add that for a weld this short (3”), any parameters you did find that were specific to “multi-pass” welding wouldn’t really apply. Normally, you go hot on your first pass or...
