Re: MIG or TIG for car bodywork restoration?

I have used both TIG and MIG for body work. I prefer MIG on large panels because it is faster, which in turn usually ( not always) means that less heat is introduced into your work.

Re: Machining 300M and actually breaking chips?

Unfortunately you are correct....you need more HP on your lathe. You need to be pretty aggressive with 4340. it does not cut well at slow speeds. Higher speeds and feeds are needed. Strings means your not moving fast enough. What diameter material are you starting out with?

Re: 12" working railroad

I thought the problem with the Meadows and Lake Kathleen RR was an "environmental" issue. There was a stream that ran through the middle of the property and the officials had a problem with the railroad crossing it, or for that matter being anywhere near it. It was a beautiful railroad fro...
