Hi jamie I think I can remember stinky talking about trying out the embossing in another post when he had just started out doing his own upholstery business, if it looks that good he will be definitely doing my interior great work. Thanx grubby

We don't want excuses  Tongue If I am stripping my knuckles, i wanna make sure others are  too lol.

Hey, if welding small stuff, like tubing, do u think 20l per minute is too much gas for mig? or should I give it a bit more. Its in the shed too.  Grin

If your regulator is like mine 12-15 is plenty, that's just inside the "green zone" on my reg.

I should've added, I did a Welding Course at TAFE and this was the recommended setting otherwise you are just wasting gas and dollars.
One other tip that will save dollars in busted regulator diaphragms, don't just turn the gas on/off at the bottle. When finished welding, back the regulator right off and drain the gas from the welder (pulling the trigger with unit off should do it). When you turn the gas back on for another session, just reset the regulator to the correct pressure.
Being "self-taught" I never knew this and broke a regulator or two  Embarrassed

Sounds like good advice Glenn although pulling the trigger with the unit off won't release the gas as there is a gas solenoid which runs the gas out to the tip and this won't activate with the unit off.

I tried it and mine does let me empty all the gas as Stinky suggested (after use)  without the unit on, as many times a I pull the trigger?

Mine must be "special"  Huh Either way, the main point is to not turn the gas bottle on with the regulator set.

I wouldn't have posted the pic normally on a build page, but thought you might be interested, seeing that you have a black car with same interior as mine. See the stripe on the roof, the difference when they went to the FC is that they painted right up to the window. This was the opening of the same taxi service that mine came from a few years earlier. Look how clean and proud everyone was.

Hi all...yes,yes still alive (barely,have Pharyngitis at the moment!).Now I'm not sure if this counts as an update but if it doesn't it might explain why there haven't been any.Over the last three weeks,our house was finished,(we started moving in on Christmas day)we spent all of Christmas night in Gawler hospital after my three year old copped a cricket bat in the back of the head and had to be glued then six days later our second child Alice Lily was born on new years eve and since then I've spent the rest of my holiday trying to get the ducted air conditioner installed which is what I think has triggered off the Pharyngitis.But after all that,we are finally HOME!And all my beauties finally have a shed to dwell in without threat of moving again.I promise there will updates but possibly not for a couple weeks at least.

New House

My beauties in their new shed

Alice Lily born 31/12/11 weighing 7lb11oz,more soon.

Well done mate. You must take a minute and a step back and just think of all the wonderful things you have achieved in your life so mar mate.  Cry One day all the blood sweat and tears will be all behind you. It is people like you who are really 'having a go' that should inspire us all! Well done on all of you achievements so far and I look forward to meeting you one day at some event and hopefully mine (projects) will be finished as well so we can compare notes  Wink

Great stuff Jamie,
House, shed and kids all look great  Smiley
Slow and steady wins the race, and also a good balance between work, family and shed.
Always look forward to seeing your progress on all things Holden,
hope you built on the high side off the street so no more floods.


Cheers Stewy   Cool

Hey Jamie.
Congrats all round.
Some great reasons for lack of progress.
By the look of the yard, the car may have some competition for attention though.
However if your daughter has lungs like mine, I am sure you would just be pleased to be out of the house.
Regards
