lol no but Alvarez guitars were the guitars I was playing way back in 1992 when I first got on the internet... it has led to confusion of many emails and people thinking I am of spanish descent so online and ps4 I go by just Alv_tw much anymore.

Thanks for the comments folks.. for reference those drawers weren't that difficult to do. I basically just sketched out the curves on paper, glued it onto the timber and went through it with a router to get the initial lines. Most of it from there was an angle grinder with a 40 grit flap disk. Do it outside

The overhanging bits were a little grinding ball in a dremel and then an acrylic abrasive wheel in there to clean it up. Then as usual, all the sanding, linseed oil and wax

Niice! Show more engine bay and turbo pics... I love this ****. I wish I knew how to weld and do metal work. I just sent my car in for custom headers and exhaust after swapping in a fresh 363.

Moisture tends to do that to wood. That's why you have to upkeep the cutting boards and keep them dry. Once the finish starts allowing moisture in, its game over.

New project today. A good friend and lifelong client of mine needed a corner tooth adapter repaired on his 36" dig bucket. The tooth adapters are obsolete so I just rewelded the existing one.


Fired up The Silver Bullet for the first time in a few months



Fit the broken piece.





Some gouging some welding good as new

Really nice workmanship

A tip if you like...add your filler at the top of the fillet and pull the puddle down when you are walking the cup...it will eliminate the saw tooth effect at the top of your lap/fillet. I tried to find a TIG fillet I have done but this is the only thing I can find right now.


sorry terrible pic

I haven't worked on something like that, I would have expected a large V made where the material was cracked to fill in for more surface area.

This flange had a ****ty fit up with a decent sized gap, so I had to kind of dab top and bottom and bridge them for this cap, and built the weld up. So if I dab on top and pull the puddle down, it won't have those humps basically? Sorry, I'm pretty new to this...especially stainless.

Do you have any tips for heat control? Seems as though I'll watch people so these weaves and it seems like they can go forever. When I try, it gets grainy, hot and warped I do pulse with the pedal, but that only goes so far. I've tried welding with copper and aluminum backing which helps, but I'm still baffled at how people can just keep a pass going forever without burning everything up. Is it just backing off the heat ever so slowly?



This is real welding, I have the utmost respect for you guys that can do this. Stick welding and gouging looks pretty tough. I may have to break out the stinger from my square wave 200 someday and actually try stick...I have a box of 7018 at the house, too.

More crap:

Fuel pump cage to protect the pump because the tank sump and truck are so low. Still wanted it to breathe though.



Seat bracket to fit racing seats, using the existing holes in the cab floor (first real thing I ever welded)




Catch can/crankcase vent...love welding aluminum




Transmission holder so that I could rebuild a 4L80e using an engine stand



Fun stainless fillet weld! First stainless I welded besides stringers.

Krems...if you're new to this and thats the workmanship you're putting out, you don't really need any tips...you just need arc time.

On small diameter, light wall pipe like that, with a gappy fit I would tack the flange so the gap is even all the way around. With stainless I'd tack every inch to keep the flange from distorting. I'd run 1 pass to fill the gap then 2 stringer passes for the cap instead of a weaved cap. When weaving a fillet weld I try to not have a weave more than 6 times the diameter of my filler rod.

Heat control is a very personal thing. I weld very hot. Probably 10% more amps than pretty much anyone else I know. Stainless is a whole different story though. You really have to have your eyes in 4 different places at once. You have to watch the leading edge of the puddle to be sure you're getting proper penetration. You have to keep a eye on the puddle for size. You have to watch the deposited metal for signs that you are letting you material get too hot. You have to watch the puddle to be sure you're not getting the molten metal too hot.

Your deposited weld metal will look like it has semi melted sugar on it if its getting too hot. Your puddle will become unstable and your arc will start to wander if it's too hot.

But like I said...you have more than the basics down pat from what I see. I know 25 year welders who can't TIG like that.
