TIG-lassen, lange schroeven maken.

TIG-lassen, lange schroeven maken.


Look, The idea is is that we have a screw, we have a threaded end and such long screws cannot be bought. So you have to make them and then you get this. And if you’re going to make that then we need the screw put in a mold so we open the mold, and put the screw in it. With gloves it is a little fiddly, so be it. OK Mold closed. Screw is fixated. threaded end in it, like that. Now we have to figure out a good point for welding, that’s this, and then we take the torch. Then I will put on my welding mask, otherwise things go south. And here we go. Not too much amperage. That is one half. Then we have to turn it around for the other half. It is almost not visible where to weld, but I know it more or less, so there goes the other half and the weld is laid. Then we open our mold open again. That can be a bit hard because it all expands, so I grab wrench. And if everything goes well then it be ejected like this. Very warm. With the brush over it. This is the result. Good enough, not super strong, but more than good enough for the goal. That’s it folks!
