Very nice Markus, would like to give that TipTIG a try. Is this stainless or maybe duplex?


Plain carbon. You could contact TIPTIG USA and ask if they are doing any demos etc in your area.

Very nice! I have to ask though...what is a fishing bell? When I was a kid we had little bells we clipped on our rods at night so we could hear if we got a bite...same thing?



Yup. that's exactly what they are for. A lot of guys here in Hawaii are shore casters. And set the bells on the poles so they can hear when a fish hits. Welded 2 of these and 2 rock spikes for a guy at work. Nice guy so I didn't even charge him. Free practice time for me I guess. I just enjoy melting metal, and helping the guys out.

Now, unless it get's hot, you need J.D.s colored epoxy fill in that... If it does get hot, maybe a glass/ceramic? :mrgreen:

It's a turbo Downpipe, so it'll get pretty hot!

So, even filling it with SiBronze and buffing it off might not stay...

Oh, well. So much for that idea.

It's a part for a windmill, the stator. I may be able to have pics at a future date
