I think you miss my question my friend, I was wondering what did you use to attach the round stock to the other round stock on the front cross member. It looks like super glue, but was wanting to make sure though.

I misunderstood your question, sorry.  :)

 

Thanks, Tom.

 

I stuck it together with super glue before removing it from the assembly jig.

I use a product that I get from my lutherie supply house that I'm quite impressed with.

 

 

My plan, from early on, after watching a guy tig weld a .003" coca cola can with no blow through, is to tig the thing together.

I don't use credit cards, so until I accumulate the cash for a welder I'm using this.

 

After having done several strength tests on aluminum, I feel confident that It will allow me to proceed with shaping & fitting all of the parts without everying falling apart in my lap.

Acetone is an excellent de-bonder for this glue, so when the welder shows up, simple matter to prep the parts for welding.

I'm keeping all of my jigs intact to simplify the weld up at that time.

It's looking real good, Ray.  I really enjoy watching your progress.

 

 

Thanks, Scott.

My favorite threads are where there are a lot of shots illustrating how a part is made...machined aluminum engines, for example...beautiful to see...more exciiting when they show how it's jigged up, in process, for different cuts etc.

 

So my inclination is to show all of the down & dirty steps I have to go through to develope a part.

 

It actually helps my thought process to write about it & be able to see it out in front of me, if that makes any sense.

Man, we must be thinking a like. That's how I feel on projects as well. 

 

BTW thanks for the answer to my question I had asked. It's easy to misunderstand something.. I should have been more clear with my question before too.

Thanks Ray.  I love seeing the step-by-step process.  Unfortunately, I'm not as good at following that advice in documenting my own build... :(

Jim, two great minds thinking alike.  lol

 

Scott, everyone has their own methods.

I've been enjoying your reporting on your current project.

Thought I'd drop in & say howdy to everyone who's been following the thread.

Life gets in the way sometimes.

Haven't touched the project in several weeks.

Keep a couple of parts out so I see them daily.

Back on it soon.

 

best to all
