View Full Version : Boom! and the "Boom" was Bang-tidy. :-)

If you recall, I posted pics of my attempt to complete the manufacture my cross-boom with the welding in place of the head-tubes.

At the end of our Southern Zombie-fest I was invited to Sandman's workshop for a hands-on welding lesson.

Once we had observed the fact that "under supervision" I can in fact "get it right", John kindly did some "Tidy-up" work on my boom with a TIG torch and a tiny bit of filler.

I won't need to do much more clean up or filling and it is "as solid as.." :-)

I also weighed the boom and it is 2 pounds 9 Ozs (in case any weight-weenies want to know). I think this is a big difference to the current Street Fox in 2.5mm square tube. Ha! Ha!

weld, thumbs-up, and grin!
Smooth Sailing. Wahoo!!!
