    SOOOOO SORRY for the lame first post Wayne. Sometimes I'm an idiot even on the weekdays.

    When I first saw the post about the wire feed welder, I felt like I needed to defend myself so people didn't think we built an engine mount using wire feed instead of a TIG. I asked my wife what "araugh araugh araugh" meant in your original post as I didn't understand it. She said, "well it looks like he is laughing at you, people can be brutal on chat forums." That made total sense that someone would be laughing at me if everyone thinks we are welding an engine mount with wire feed. I honestly thought I was being mocked. After your comment with the "what gives" shoulders I was forced to reach out for more expert chat forum help on how I miss read the laughing in your original post. I'm told "araugh araugh araugh" is the text version of Tim the Tool Man Taylor's expression for "manly awesomeness" Don't know how I missed that.

    I've always avoided chat forums, now the only time I've ever been pulled into one was to defend myself and it turns out I didn't need defending at all, except from myself.

    Wayne, you meant no harm in your original post, it was TOTALLY my misread!!!! I'm sorry.

    actually i saw the bottle on the welding cart and thought wire feed as well! my assumption was, you were mocking things and tig welding later off the air frame...
    is it common knowledge that TIG welders use gas shielding too?

    We're good Mark! Sent you private message..

    The auaah auuaah auaah was a reference to that Tim Allen used to do on, shoot, what was it.. tool time?? Anyway, it's the "manly" sound we make when we take a good picture and chimp it, or make something work that seemed impossible, particularly, when you have access to the wonderful thing that a mig welder is... truly wasn't thinking any deeper about what was being made, and meant the post as a compliment that plain old folks can make something really special if they have the right tools...

    Again, we're all good and WELCOME TO THE HANGAR

    Nice work on the mount btw!

    "is it common knowledge that TIG welders use gas shielding too? "

    The TIG process always uses sheilding gas, "IG" being Inert Gas. The MIG acronym can be misleading because some types of wire have a flux core and can be used without shielding gas.

    it appears that Mike has finished his Turbine Legacy and that it was parked at OSH during Airventure. There is a photo of it on the Airventure photos page. Try this link http://www.flickr.com/photos/eaaairv...h/19844345190/

    Any other photo's are surely welcome. Looking forward to September.
