Thanks. Confused on the challenge part, do you mean about collecting tig rod to be able to weld anything.

As far as the 318 tig rod it does exist. Do not know actual uses for it just googled it

Lincoln link does not want to go directly to when I copy it. Don't know why but
Click consumables at top pick tig. then select LNT on left brings up list open up stainless and there it is LNT 318 si

why use standard nozzles after gas lens where invented. Kinda of like starting fires by rubbing sticks together.

Yeap, thread revival. I spend most of the day yesterday making more PVC tubes for my tig rods....so far, it's not looking good. BUT, I do need to run to Lowes and pick up more stuff, lol. All stuff I've been collecting since 2009.

That's how I justify the 200# of tools I carry for a cross-country trip. They've saved my arse more than once, too.

If you didn't carry around that many tools you wouldn't have to replace the shocks and suspension on the side of the road Steve. :lol:

I replaced a front wheel "unit bearing" on my '01 Dodge Ram in the parking lot of an AutoZone 400 miles from home on a Sunday because I had my tools.

I also had a front brake pad fall the hell apart and go metal-on-metal in Melbourne, Florida while I was on a business trip in a Chrysler LeBaron. The guys who sold me the new brake pads took pictures of me changing it out in the parking lot in my khakis and dress shirt. They were also nice enough to turn that rotor down to the spec limit (and perhaps a little beyond) so I could get back on the road.

I don't go more than 50 miles from home without tools. Under 50, I'll get a tow.

I know a truck driver who got a call from a customer one time and as he got the call he was crawling out under a truck after replacing his transmission on his semi in a parking lot 500 miles from home. Over 2 million miles on the rig and he hauls all sorts of farm machinery.
