And here is the weld after a bit of wire brushing. Since I was just testing the foot switch, I didn't spend any time getting the welder set up correctly. I got a bunch of spatter, but the weld was not too bad. I'm calling the switch a success.

Next, I need to work on a motorized rotating mechanism...

Awesome IDEA!!!
Because of my amputation I have been trying to figure out how I would use the Tig pedal since I am right handed. Now of course I have NEVER tig welded before so it's going to be interesting just trying to get the hang of it period.
But I really like your idea for the mig when I need to have both hands for doing something. Hoping I'll be building some link here in the coming months.

Always enjoy seeing what you come up with as you work on your Jeep.

After reading your posts about shop compressors I feel like I have the baby in my garage. I just have a Craftsman 60 gallon 7.5 cfm setup. I have a spare 60 gallon tank that I have thought about plumbing into the system but have never hooked it up.

Well I'd love to just have your garage...Ö..

When I had mine built I thought 24X30' would be big enough. Now I wish I had gone twice that size if not more. Plus I should have made it tall enough to install a lift. You know what they say about hind sight.....

Very clever! If your going to do much rotary work, try a tweco roto ground, you can see one in the bottom right of first pic:



The piece shown was done on a weld head positioner (rotary) by me on Wednesday. The second pic shows the final "icing", positioner jaw chuck can be seen in back of pic



These little doo dads are cool, switch is in base and comes with a adjustable torch holder:

The ideal torch holder for manual operation is a rack and rail, but I have been using underwater flash/strobe arms that use the 1" ball for manual positioning of torch, rigid enough to be still but also smooth enough to be moved at will

Sweet build! I just started reading your build thread, I sure will keep updated on it, you work very well and clean. I do like the innovations you build either on the jeep or your shop. I just updated my build page, and saw your comment. Thanks

We are good, Chris. Thanks for asking. Nasty night for parts of Tennessee, though. 25 fatalities as of now.

Good to hear that you're alright. Sad to hear about the tragedies. We got a pretty good storm out here but nothing as bad.

Glad to hear you are okay. Sorry about those who didn't make it. Hope things settle down for you weather wise. Stay safe and take care of yourself and family.

You need to start thinking about bringing that monster out here to the PNW once my TJ is running again so I can show you around.

Ok, my Diehard Platinum AGM battery has given up the ghost. It's not holding a charge sitting for a few days. I've had it in there for quite some time now, so I guess it's time. So here is my question:

Should I get the Red Top, the Yellow Top, or the Blue Top?

Deka Intimidator is a good option. My Jeep sits in a cold garage for weeks/months at a time in Colorado and hasnt had any problems is 3 or 4 years.

I have a yellow top from waaay back that I still carry as a spare. It gets used rarly but always ready to work, That said, I went with Odyssey Extreme on the TJ mostly cause they had a size that would fit where I needed them. They work too, just like the yellow top.
