I've never been good with oxygen & acetylene welding, and not much of an aluminum weldor at all. But I'll stick with Tig when it comes to welding aluminum!

Puddles, I read everything that you put on this site. You've taught me some useful things that's improved my welding. You do some beautiful work, and can back up what you talk about with photos like the one above. I have to say that you remind me of my old welding instructor, and that is a compliment. I'll never be a really good welder - just adequate, and I know my limitations. Last week, I made a hydraulic tank, and decided to pressure test it before I painted it. It looked pretty sharp, but 20 psi and a squirt bottle of Windex later, and I had bubbles everywhere. I finally got it airtight, but it was no longer pretty, ha. Thanks for all of your informative posts!

WOW Paul 20-psi! I hope that was a round tank with domed ends! Normally I only use 3 to 4 psi when testing square or rectangular tanks. And even then they bulge out really bad.

Rectangular tank - 1/4" material - 2 qt. volume - only 4" square by 9" long or thereabouts.

I usually use a bicycle innertube cut in two, with the cut ends clamped on the openings, but my sacrificial tube was rotted. . .

Sorry for straying the original post.
