I have found the only thing within my budget atm is a stick welder, lol.
I have experimented welding exhaust pipe, specifically 76mm OD 1.6mm thick on low amperage with 2.5mm sticks.
Does anyone have some tips I should consider when trying to weld the flanges (8mm) to the ends of the 1.6mm thick pipe?
What methods do people use when it comes to forming elbows and bends in pipe, without the use of pipe bender (Cutting angles)?
How about determining the radius or mapping of a curve of exhaust pipe under axles and through the chassis exhaust tunnels .etc? - Maybe I should make a seperate thread
I find drawing a scale diagram with measurements, deriving the angles and measurements fromt the drawing and then cutting the pipe to the chosen size/ angle etc.
Would be very greatful for some replies.
