Gas Welding Safety Equipment
Dr. Joe Maj, long-time AirVenture volunteer in the Gas welding workshops and forums, and SportAir Workshop instructor shows us the type of personal safety equipment we need before starting the gas welding process.
In Steel and Welding
Forming Steel with Arbor Press
Forming steel plate can be made easy using an arbor press and homebuilt fabricated dies. EAA Chapters Manager John Egan reviews his fabricated components then demonstrates how to form a wood floor hold down clamp.
Marking Tubing Reference Lines
Timm Bogenhagen from the EAA staff demonstrates an easy way to mark a reference line on long pieces of tubing.
Welding Helmets Overview
Not all welding helmets are the same. Charlie Becker from the EAA staff reviews the basic and some special features of helmets and discusses how more than one helmet is useful when welding aircraft structures.
Joining tubes together requires shaping the tube end to get a good tight fit. Charlie Becker demonstrates a technique he learned from Paul Poberezny to fishmouth tubing for good tight fits.
TIG Welding Tips
Charlie Becker from the EAA staff provides several tips and tricks to obtain the best possible TIG welds.
Welding By The Numbers
Dr. Joe Maj, AirVenture volunteer in the Gas welding workshops and SportAir Workshop instructor shares his three key numbers for gas welding success. If you adopt these three key numbers, you will learn to gas weld much quicker and easier.
