    Aluminum frame?

    I wanted to use the part from a bike and keep one tube on it that slide in the aluminum tubing and bolted togheter. But I didn't finish the design. Also the wheels had to be mounted to it and that part I wanted to let cut or make it like the warrior Trike plans. I was planning to ask a company...

    Aluminum frame?

    When i designed it, it was about as heavy as a steel frame and i did't put everything on it because i stopped workingon it. Those bolds ad a lot of weight but also the aluminum isn't that much lighter because of the amount you need and the thicknes as you go for such a design. Only as you use...

    Aluminum frame?

    You buy the quality you want with aluminum. The stronger it is, the higher the price. As you do heat treatment, then you need also cool it the right way, els it will make that you get weak spots. As it cools, the aluminum can crack as it isn't colled evenly and it can bend. It isn't easy to do...

    Aluminum frame?

    I have seen that. I looked ad it before i went for steel and my first design was for aluminum. But what i calculated, the frame wouldn't be that light or i had to go for more expensive aluminum. Than you can go thinner without that you have to be afrait that it would bend and use less tubes...

    Aluminum frame?

    Why do you want heat treatment? Heattreatment changes the steel but it depends on the use if it is needed. It makes the steel stiffer but it can also break faster. So it isn't Always the way to go. Bolded aluminum frames are not Always that much lighter. The amount of extra hardware and aluminum...

    Weld, grind and weld again. I did the same in the beginning and I still need to clean some welds. But after a while it grinding gets les.

    Welding gets better as you do it more often. Just try and also play a bit with the settings. You can always clean it up and do it over. 20amps.that is not much.

    Warrior racing trike changed design

    No i didn't make any because i didn't work on the trike. I am now looking what i have left for the side bag mounts and the phone mount. Designing some mounts that i can 3d print, like a gopro mount and some other things.

    Yes with 50 amps I use 2mm and with 40 I use te 1.6. For thinner, that works easier, but as you do it right, then 2 ad 50 amps will work fine. You ony need to watchout that you don't stay in to long.

    Warrior racing trike changed design

    I got today one bag for on the side of my bike. I use it to make a mount for it. I had a short run last week and it didn't go that well. I was tired fast and it didn't ride that good. Today I checked what was wrong and i found it very fast. The position of my pedals wasn't good. They where to...

    Your welder is good for thinner materials and for the tubes you use, it is good. For tour build i would choose the blue image for the steering.
