    Default Metal working with Wrencher.

    Hey guys.

    I get a lot of questions and inquiries about working with metal. Shaping, bending, welding, brazing etc. So what I have been thinking about for a while now was to do a video showing some of the stuff I do to make my bumpers and so on. What I am going to do is make a few videos to show some of the tools and process that I use. Now please keep I mind this is not going to be a 5 min video to show how to weld or braze. There is a lot to cover. I also want you to keep in mind that I have been working with metal for a lot of years and most of this takes a bunch of practice to get decent or good results. I am also not a professional welder or millwright. what I am going to show is the way I have learned to do things that work for me. practice is the key to doing this. Do not get discouraged. Keep trying till you get it figured out.

    I would like others to ask questions if I leave something out, or am not clear on something. I would also like to encourage others to chime in and share there experiences and tips and tricks.

    Now a few disclaimers to make.

    1st I am not a video or tech guy. I have no idea about scripting, filming or lighting. I do not have anything other than a gopro hero to film with. Sorry if it is not exciting or it seems like I am rambling, but I am trying to do my best to help people. also sorry if the sound sucks but best I can do. turn your volume up please.

    2nd I am not a scientist. I do not have metallurgical details and do not know exact temps or chemical composition of things. Sorry if I make mistakes in here.

    3rd warning is that the first video is long (48min) but It covers a lot of stuff. grab a drink and sit back and relax.



    Part 2.

    Much shorter but we actually get to join some metal together.



    part 3 is about some design ideas and cleaning It up


    Part 4 - makin shock hoops

    Helps a Million, mister. Thanks!
    One thing thouh; You say you use steel brakeline.
    Do you mean steel as in corbon steel?
    Over here in Holland all I can find is copper or CuNiFer (Copper/Nickle/iron blend). The first is obviously to soft, the latter might do the trick.

    just wodering, I'll give this stuff a try anyway.

    This is amazing. I've been looking for something like this for quite some time. Thank you for all your hard work. Quick question, do you plan to cover brazing at all?

    In the UK I use 3/16" steel bundy tube which is essentially the same as steel brakeline.

    Your welcome. I am not sure on the actual brazing with oxy acetylene. I don't really use it for rc stuff. It is not something I have been able to get to work on fine detail work.

    That sounds like about the right stuff. I am not sure what the actual blend of metal is it is a pretty soft and mild steel tubing used to make brake lines on real cars.
