    I replaced the brake lines on a 1951 Ford F1 and almost every one of my flares leaked and could not stop the leaks. Resorted to using store bought brake lines and still had a few leaks. What am I doing wrong. Regret that I even opened the lines. Thanks.Philip

    As a beginner welder, I’m interested in purchasing a multiprocess welder. What recommendations? And, what suggestions do you have to start off practicing? Tips, etc…

      Hello Gabe,

      Thank you for your patience while I asked the expert, here is the reply:

      You didn’t mention what your budget was so we’ll assume you want to weld everything from frames to sheet metal.
      We are fans of the Lincoln 210 MP, it’s a great little welder that is designed to run for years and a quality unit like this will hold its value better than any off brand.
      If you’re on a tight budget, we’ve heard good things about the Vulcan OmniPro 220 offered by Harbor Freight, and they do offer extended warranties.
      Start by practicing with the gauge or thickness of the metal you’ll be welding the most.
      If it’s 18 or 20 gauge sheet metal, cut up several 2″x 4″ metal coupons and practice doing different welds, (butt, lap, plug, T-joint, etc…)
      For sheet metal with a wire feed you’ll have best results using a thin wire .023-.030 with a shielding gas.
      You’ll find thinner fill rod also works well for sheet metal TIG welding.

      Wrench Safe,

      Mark

    I have a 1978 Corvette Pace Car. It has 43,000 miles on it. Mostly original. Good condition. When it gets up to operating temperature and stopped it is hard to restart it. It is dangerous to drive at that point. After it runs for a while I put it into the garage the gas fumes smells are horrid. There are no gas leaks that I can find. The Rochester carb is not leaking. The gas fumes last for weeks. Need your help and input how to fix these issues. Thank you.
