Bowie69 what a great post I'm still spontaneously chuckling trying to decide if it justifys a forum name change to The Git or Bowie69's git but that might lead fellow forum members into thinking you were a tad indiscriminate in your youth can't have that wouldn't be fair to you so I will stick with the original regards the git oops Stephen

  8. Hi All Bought this at the weekend at an auto jumble with a view to fitting it to my lightweight however there are some differences ie metal d rings at sides of front section also there seems to be a thick rolled section at the front where it would normally fit above the windscreen but has no means to hook on other than that everything else looks fine thanks in advance regards Stephen

  10. Pretty sure I use the gray 2% ceriated tungstens and seem to get along fine with them on aluminium and a foot pedal is definately the way to go I bought a Stahlwerk tig and very happy with it obviously not classed as an expensive one but its weighing up usage against cost for me, anyway the pedal came with it and I'm sure it is only £35 to replace, the potentiometer gave me issues as was jumping the teeth on what looks like a piece of ribbed fan belt I added a spring to give tension to stop it jumping and has been fine since. I have only tried the 1.6 mm rods so far and have welded up to 5mm aluminium ok also the filler rod adding is a pain in the A*** but gratifying when it does come together all good fun enjoy the welding course regards Stephen
