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]

I love it man. As soon as I saw you roll the piece at the beginning to get your measurement, I was in. That's exactly the type of stuff I did to replicate aircraft sheetmetal parts. I miss it. Not only is it excellent fab work, it's excellent videography to share with us. Thanks!

Often times it's just faster to let a fab guy do it. Our engineers always come up with things and then I'm like why not do it like this. Faster easier and often cheaper. Just do it

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.

When you start going through all the plastic pieces in your car because you've already replaced everything else with aftermarket.

My first Aluminum welding turned into a puddle, I was a Stainless welder, whole different kind of welding. My Galvanized & Black Iron welding was about the same. I got Better... Turning the Heat down helped. thx for the vid.

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

At ~17:00 What for an Alu-Magnet do you use? I use the Bauxitmaster 200 and searching for a better one....
Nice job , my friend. Not everybody can make so beautiful work.

who are the 700 odd homo's that dislike this. Its not a sword fight at the Csaba Sausage Fest with who's fat is the most succulent, its frickin metal wizadry which is a discipline and a craft combined. Fucking tools the lot of ya.

This is truly amazing! For a one off or a couple I agree with you - CAD has its place but for the speed of getting the job done when you have the skill that you’ve shown here, is all you need👍 😳 I was fascinated by the use of of the Play Dough - ingenious! John🇬🇧
