    It could be a few reasons for the welding machine too act as such, one the liner either needs cleaning or replaced. Two, the tension mechanism that forwards the wire through the liner up the lead can fail. Seriously there's not a whole lot that go wrong with these welding machines but they are just that a machine. Cheers !

    I had a good laugh when you realized that maybe you were pulling on the wrong hose- BUT- not laughing at you but in understanding. I don't know the number of times I've been working- then fighting something on a project then realize, talking to myself here, "Dummy, THAT'S why this wasn't working!"

    I've been a cat mechanic for years, build them here in Washington state. Watching you have to do so much to pop out the elevator pins had me laughing. We have those problems as well when old machines come in for routine maintenance. Also, Watching you drill the shims I was screaming so bad, your welds on that bracket better be perfect, you just put all the stress on them now ruining the shims. Love what you do Andrew. Spoke to soon, just got to you cutting the shims to work lmao....

    @Andrew Camarata I get that, but I see some easier ways to achieve that goal. You have the tools, and the desire to repair your broken parts but I also see you break far to many tools, parts, and equipment trying to fix stuff. There are courses that you can take to learn how to retrieve broken parts, but what you are doing it going to get someone maybe even yourself seriously injured. You should never hook a chain or cable to equipment and just tug on it. As you noticed these can break and send parts flying. Likely taking out eyes and or killing (your dog) or others around you. I cringed so many times when you just yanked and broke your chains, cables, and tow points off that I had to say something.

    Good video. I admire your work ethic. On the blade though I liked the trick with the bolt to bend it back inward. You should of used that trick 4 more times one for each corner of the plate you welded on. That would give it more support and it would allow it to be easily secured during welding.

    ok some constructive criticism ... i just hate when a creator cuts the sound completely and leaves you hanging with no sound .... add background noise add elevator music but never leave it with no sound .

  • Gr8Success


    15 dagar sedan

    ​@Andrew Camarata just a suggestion : when you have short periods of fast forwarding the video instead to leave sound blank you could add a sound effect of a cassette player *Click* and a *Rewind Sound Effect* and you could probably layer it with some speed up generic background noise you had in the scene . you could use AUDACITY for sound editing and save your sound clips to use in your video . anything just so you don't leave gaps in your soundtrack . hope it helps?

    @Andrew Camaratain my opinion it breaks from the immersion if you completely cut the sound ... if you have headphones you want to hear constant sound or noise so you get separated from the outside... if you cut the sound you start hearing your surroundings ... anyways keep up the good work i enjoy your videos

    I get the got to get her done attitude if you are “in the field” but if are working in a shop I was under the impression that if you don’t try to clean up your metal before welding you can contaminate your weld causing porosity. Great video thanks for sharing

    That welds are not good but not bad, you still need to practice. You should considering to buy lathe and magnet drill, it will be much easier to drill holes or to turn material to right size. Biggest minus, is that you don't paint welded parts, it will be rusty faster.

  • Sosostupid

    Put your bearings in the freezer overnight or longer next time. Heat the part with a torch a bit right before installing the new bearing/bushing and out of the freeze and only when you’ve got everything ready to press it in. An expanded seat and shrunken bearing go RIGHT together. You’d think it was TOO easy. Hey man- use resources instead of going through the learning curve solo- others have done that already, learn from Their experience. Shit you busted Every damn bolt you put a wrench to…they weren’t even that shitty lookin…
