HawHaw.

Yea it's way overkill , I just made it with some of the steel scraps in my garage..... .250 is the smallest stuff I generally have....More forgiving on the heat warping so fine with me....hehe

-------

I decided to unleash 'The Destroyer' on the keg.

What's 'The Destroyer' you ask ?

This :



-----

Let me tell you , this is one of the nastiest, most dangerous tools around.A grinder powered wire brush is the ultimate 'stripping' tool....It's fully capable of stripping threads right off screws......

Here's the test patch ;



------

Clean keg ;



------

I've started the Lexan siliconing ;



------

2 sides on ;



------

I was at the scrapyard today , I finally found my seal ring ;



-----

This gets welded onto the inner tank , about 4 inches from the top.....it provides support as well as a sealing surface.

So I gather you've hit yourself in the leg once or twice with the grinder?

Nope .

The grinderbrush actually throws off pieces of itself , and they stick in....Gotta use the grinder off axis the whole time.....

Hahaha , nah....

I fired the last guy that did a 'one-handed-grinder-ooops-cut-my-arm'...prolly saved his life.

Mr.grinderbrush is an extreme case ......sure works well tho.

Quick addendum ;

The last 10 pics have been from my same old camera , After I totally broke it.

My tripod is a POS and it's leg's don't really stay where yah put 'em......it fell over 2 days ago and landed right on the lens......bent it about 15 degrees outta it's case.

I took the plunge and just carefully pryed er back in....

Seems to work just fine so far !!

Ok.

I just bought these ;



These are special welding rods designed to allow welding of dissimilar steels : mild steel,carbon steels,stainless,Inconel,monel etc/etc.....

Ooof tho......150$ ...like 11$ a rod or something......good thing I get deals.

-----

So I'm out to the workshop to attempt welding the mild steel seal ring to the stainless inner resevoir tank.

Wish me luck !

Pics soon hopefully.

Depends on the foreplay and amount of alcohol consumed beforehand.

Hehe....

If its 1 long weld , about 30 seconds.

-----

Oh yea baby !! full on win !

Very interesting rods.....fast set......stringer only type rods.....

I did reasonably well considering I've never used em before , and this is mild steel to 316l stainless......All I really need is decent tacks.....silicone does the seal...managed to get some good results ;



The tackweld on the right is perfect......the one on the left is crap......that's me learning.....

These rods actually do amazing 'gap fills' too ; This is a 1/4" gap :



-----

I think these rods might be worth the buck-an-inch......I'm impressed forsure !!


-----------

Got the second side on the pump enclosure ;

More soon .
