    Want to learn how to Weld

    I was self taught via Youtube from Chuckie2009. I believe he started posting alot of right wing political content and I beleive his channel was removed as a byproduct, which was unfortunate because his welding content was fantastic. Looks like some of his vids are back up...

    World Formula Motor! I bet that thing rips! Is it just me, or does seeing a Predator motor on a classis mini bike a little upsetting? I newer Briggs like an Animal or World Formula, I dig it. But a Predator motor from China? (even though they are great motors) Please don’t take this a dig...

    My New Kart Racing Channel (LO206)

    If you guys are into this sort of thing, I started a Youtube channel on my entry into Lo206 kart racing. I do not claim to be an expert in anything, whether it be kart racing or making YouTube video’s. But if it pleases the court . . . I race with a bunch of other military veterans, so the...

    Go power sports in texas

    Society has gotten too soft, offended at everything. Being military I have such a thick skin, I forget sometimes people are so easy to offend. I alway think about the old quote on friends: (paraphrasing) "Friendship is is saying something offensive to someone. Just to have them sit back and...

    Harbor Freight

    When I painted cars in my garage, I did the same. I used to wait until the purple gun’s went on sale for $9.99, because that that price I could use them once and pitch them.

    Harbor Freight

    The Harbor Freight Coupon database was the best place to get coupons, but now HF has their business model set on the Goldilocks philosophy: Good- Beter- Best Good- Chicago ($) Better- Bauer ($$) Best- Hurcules ($$$) But now they’ve moved to their “Inside Track” coupon program, where you have...

    Engines you’d love to play with but haven’t yet . . .

    So with my kart racing habit, and the fact that I have two daughters also getting into the sport ($$$) I have an excess of Briggs Lo206 motors and I can’t stop thinking about putting one on a mini bike build. I also race with a class that uses the Japanese built Subaru Robin engines, which are...

    So what are you welding with? (Post your set up here)

    Anyone have any advice on welding round frame tubing on mini bikes or karts? I have some road rash issues I’m looking to tend with. Tubes aren’t worn through (yet) but thats what I’m trying to avoid by stacking metal on top of it, grind smooth/ round, and repair paint. .23 or .30? Pass length...

    So what are you welding with? (Post your set up here)

    Yeah that foot pedal thing was definately difficult to tend with. I know if I spent enough time, MAYBE I could have gotten better over time. But now I just look at a pack of shinny dimes in ahh, and think people who can Tig are too cool for me, lol.
