    Maybe something similar to the handle on a manual cold saw that has a spring in it to limit the amount of force, which I think should correlate the the speed of bend?

    Big problem is the...

    I can't tell if it's flat either, Fish On.

    To actually answer your question:

    If it was flat, and walked in my shop you'd be looking at 175 to 225 with fine brushed 304 18ga and no engraving,...

    Looks like a gas problem to me too. Are you welding in a breezy area? Any chance the gas is being blow away?

    With that said you really should clean with acetone before welding, also with that...

    Have you though about a .065" or, a bit larger, Ti rod inserted in the existing hole and then weld up the outside?

    The plates just need to fit the striper arm's bolt up location, we weld a couple 1/4"-20 nuts on the plates and then bolt them up. You want to size the center stripping hole based on what range of...

    I have an older Dynasty and a much older syncro 500, neither of them have coolant sensors. Seems like if you're flowing you're good, just my 2 cents

    I would run 200 Amps (more if you have a later Dynasty), 120 HZ, 3/32" Tri-mix tungsten (Wolfram), #6 cup, 5356 rod, just my two cents and works well for me.

    I would highly recommend getting a...

    Another vote for TIG on 1" Ali welds. Your syncrowave 200 should have enough of power, I assume you have a water cooled torch. I have a Dynasty 200 and a old 500 syncro and a 350p mig, this job would...

    I personally would go with steel not aluminum, given that you're welding Ali parts on it.

    I agree with IOC, I've bought three welders from them and had excellent service. For gloves I've been buying Tillman on Amazon, decent prices and quick. I've also used Cyberweld for tungstens and...

    Have you talked to Alameda Prop and Machine? I haven't been there for 15 years but they have some very large lathes (think ferry boat prop shafts)

    When I got my shear (used Pexto 12ga) and went through the blade adjustment I had to adjust the truss nut, a lot. I would start there as that is the design intent of the truss being adjustable. On my...

    I would fully agree, any precision sheet shop can easily shear it accurately at a much lower cost than laser. What part of CA are you in?

    I wouldn't think that a B2 is going to make you happy if you're doing straight cuts. If you can live with 24" I would think a diarco 24" would fit the bill nicely.

    As per Thermite, need to know if you need curved cuts. Beverly B2 is a great tool but not for cutting repetitive straight accurate cuts.
