    How about a HOMEMADE intake manifold for a 427 Ford?

    This started out as all flat stock on the floor..
    NO prints..NO nothing!
    The car owner did 80% of the machining I did the other 20 but did 100% of the welding.
    Put it on the car in my signature and it went from 9.12 to 8.84 and we never touched the carbs after changing the manifold..

    After that you can always entertain your friends with your welding skills on yourself if you are so inclined..

    So if there are any Welding/Machining questions I am willing to lend a ear..

    I get all the fun jobs...

    Nope..
    That was store bought.
    However I did lots of other fabrication for it and the dragster..
    Made stuff you can't buy..

    We built Louies manifold just for laffs basically..and that was built at the mill that's not in the center of Uxbridge anymore ...

    Hogan's wanted 2600$ (Back in 2000 when we built this one) and we just wanted to see if it would work or not..

    It worked way better than we ever dreamed but now it's just a paperweight.

    Small stuff from today..
    Had some threaded inserts that needed "Stop" washers welded to them..

    Keep it small and "Don't wreck the threads"...



    Positioner in use.
    Now for those of you that don't know what a "Positioner" is..
    It's a VERY expensive machine that will turn your parts while you weld so there are no stops and starts on round stuff..
    It can be set up as shown or tilted 90 degrees for welding long shafts with the help of some stationary wheels to hold up the weld end..
    You operate it with a footpedal that has "Infinate" settings depending on how far you push on the pedal..
    It has a speed range from zero to a whopping 1.5 R.P.M. !!!! and goes forward and reverse with the flip of a switch..


    (Be sure to get all the zinc coating off the washers........)

    Ok now here we go..
    Pic 1..Parts..
    Pic 2.. Positioner and the pedals..Positioner pedal left..Welder pedal right..
    (Sometimes when I am board I switch feet)...
    Pic 3.. Tacked..
    Pic 4.. Ready to go..
    Pic 5.. Welded..
    Pic 6.. Parts done!

    3/32" Red tungsten..
    .035 70S-2 Filler..
    100? Amps..


    I get all the fun jobs..
