Please read this before commenting: This is a one-off part, and this was the fastest way to make it with the tooling I have available at my shop. No, I should not have used CAD, it would have taken longer with no benefit. The ovals intersect at compound angles (rotated inward and downward), and the round tube is offset to one side. Measuring and drawing this all up perfectly to make templates on a computer would take a lot of unnecessary additional time. And no, this is not a part that would be practical to 3d print. It is going on an engine, so it is exposed to heat cycling and vibration. There is a full article write-up on the website about this video: -Welder settings -Material selection -Reason behind all the techniques -Etc... If anything on the website isn't clear, feel free to email me. Http://www.6061.com/ Thanks for watching [email protected]

Great video! The calculator was a good touch too. Had to rewind to see if it said what I thought.

It's a shame you feel obliged to second guess all the potential boneheaded comments about how to do it better. Your skills are outstanding and a pleasure to watch. I hope the armchair experts can appreciate how ingenuity trumps modern techniques and life goes on without CAD and 3D ... if you are blessed with imagination. Well done Mate! Greetings from Australia

Forget the fact that the guy is a next-level tigger.. the ingenious jigs and patterning this guy comes up with blows my mind. It's like he's worked 3 lifetimes with those old guys that never share their tricks.

Hello friend of the Welding tig, Here in Brazil we do not speak welding helmet, it is welding mask. you see? and how are you doing the video, you're the one who should have one for those who watch your video, because we're lazy. kkk. but I liked your video, your skill and even more, the weld beads you made, they were very even. you have skilled hands. good job. congratulations. I say that because I'm a mechanical technician and I work with that. See you. again, congratulations.

Good Job! I've worked the past 32 years in metal fab shops and I can see that you've done this before lol. Keep up the great work and video's. FYI I've used putty before and people looked at me like I was nuts. Then they saw how fast the part came together and said that it was a good idea..lol I still use the orange sheet metal template paper.!!!

What exactly is the play-doh for? Preventing heat transfer to another area I assume to combat warping?
t j (24 days ago)
For giving a reference to mark the scribing to ensure as close as possible fit. Very smart I might add.

Mad skills here Aaron, both in welding/fab and in video editing. Like all great craftsmen, you make it look easy, but I know it's not. I could probably weld something like that together so it would do the job and not come apart, but it would look like ass. I am in the process of building a racing car with endless fab involved. If you were close I would DEFINITELY bring you work.

Been retired for 6 years now from 40+ yrs in Metal Fab. My Email from 1st internet start long time ago has been "METALMAN". Sure wish I had thought of filming some of my projects lol Working @ LBNL/Lab and other Gov work. All the engineers/scientist equipment was very involved, stainless, aluminum, steels, copper, even plastics and special coatings. Sure wish I could do it all over again !!! But the copper hood over the fireplace is awesome :)

The beauty of Aluminium being able to go over welds your not entirely happy with and make the passes look amazing, I remember it well back in 1976 thankfully we had H/F start then but that was the only aid no slope in, slope out, pre gas purge or post and certainly no pulse back then but welding Aluminium was a joy. Thankfully I was only doing the welding I had very experienced sheet metal fabricators who after they had done their part would leave me with a fabrication that was a joy to weld. Myself i could not do what you have done but then I was a welder of one skill . I take my hat of to you Sir
