Thanks Titan. Things are looking better today, but the fire is still 0% contained. The highway to work is closed, and doesn't appear like it's going to open anytime soon. Between this and the Black Forest Fire, our fighting resources are stretched thin.

Howdy all!! Hope everyone out there had a great summer. Mine was as usual, hectic, and I'm mostly glad it's over.

I was hoping to get moving on the Jeep again in the next few days, ran into a snag today. Was helping a friend replace a muffler, and when I pulled out the welder I came to the realization that the last person that used it, didn't shut the shielding tank. It's empty. I just replaced the tank about a year ago, and I'm sure the last I used it, it still had well over 90% left in it.

So that's a big bummer, and I have more or less no way to figure out who did it. I think I know who it was, but why bother without any proof, all that will accomplish are hurt feelings. So I'm going to have to get a new tank before I start working again, but I want to figure out how I can lock the shielding gas tank. Don't have a cabinet or anything to keep it locked in, so I'm trying to think of a way that I can lock the cylinder cap onto the tank.

That product is ideal, but I have no intention of spending that much money on it.

That product is cheaper, but doesn't actually protect the valve, which is also needed.

I think I may just end up fabbing something up myself.

Unfortunately, the best reason NOT to loan your stuff to other folks; when you want to use it, you may not be able to!!

I'm with Harold on this one. Nobody ever ask to use my welder anyway but I often do favors for people using it. Lock the shop door and nobody gets in unless you're there. I'm kinda cranky about my machines and tools but it takes allot of hard earned money to buy them so I don't feel bad being that way. Hurry though and get that 4BT in there!!!!

While I wish that were the option I could take, I'm actually the one borrowing/using the equipment. Though I do pay for the materials, it's all part of my uncle's shop, so I can't really dictate who gets to use it. So I figure the next best step is to be able to lock it. I get a key, my uncle gets a key, and everyone else gets held accountable.

As for that 4BT, I've been collecting parts all summer long. I need to finish the few last patch panels on the body, and then I can mock everything on the frame to figure out how I need to fab the engine mounts.

I've been tinkering with some built adapters, and assuming I can find a business with a cnc plasma table willing to cut the parts at a decent rate, should be able to fund the rest of the project that way.

I've been busy!!

The turbo on the left is what I had originally planned on using. The turbo on the right is brand new, cost a fraction of what it's worth, and is better suited to my needs. Physically it's much smaller, which means it will build boost quicker, but still flows as much air as the one on the left.


Sometimes being a scumbag would make things so much easier. I received the turbo above yesterday. Then I got another package today, and guess what.


The person I bought the turbo from on ebay is lucky I'm honest, sent him a message and told him.

For anyone curious the turbo's above are and HX30W on the left, the two new ones are HE221W.

Twin turbo setup would sure be cool.

I've often thought the same. Use one of these small turbos over an HX35. Sure seems like overkill though

The seller of those turbos sold me the second one he sent me for less than half what I paid for the first one. Should be able to resell it and help pay for some of the parts I'll need.
Have a busy week or two ahead of me, and then I should be able to start getting some work done in the evenings
