Re: Headers are a waste of money?

Re: whats the safest way to welf aluminum fuel tank?

Idk if it makes much difference but argon is heavier than air and the few tanks I welded, I put the argon hose in at the bottom so it would "push" the air out the top

Re: Airdrive for bowfishing or fish gigging rig.

A bow-fishing or flounder gigging rig would make a really good application for a simple, close fitting duct around a standard multi-blade, Hascon type fan and give up to double the thrust for the same power as an open prop or fan. I am going to work out details for a practical setup. It would be qu...
