Hose clamps have remained largely unchanged in design since nearly the dawn of the automobile. However, the Power Grip hose clamps provide a new twist on hose clamps, using a heavy gauge heat shrinkable material these clamps get the job done. Not only do they clamp well they adjust their tightness every time the engine get hot and won’t dig into your hoses like metal clamps will. Mark Simpson demonstrates how to install them and how to remove them too.
Craig Hopkins teaches you how to create a plug weld while installing a floorpan. You will need to make sure the top pan is dropped all the way down tight on the base metal of the car. It is essential when clamping that you make it both tight and right next to the weld. YouWatch Now >>
One of the important first steps in TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, is to know the differences between tungsten electrodes, how to properly cut them shorter if needed and how to properly sharpen them before installing them into the welding torch. Professional hot rod fabricator and welder, Gary Simpson explains the differences and what you’llWatch Now >>
Craig Hopkins teaches you how to properly use and take care of a welder. Personally, he likes to work with the gas gauge on 30, but for better puddle control you’ll work on 20. No matter what type of welder you have, make sure to maintain a nice gentle loop in all of the cordsWatch Now >>
GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) or TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, was known for years by many enthusiasts simply as heliarc welding; a process that often involved very expensive equipment and gases. The cost of equipment has come down dramatically over the years and is now within reach for most auto restoration hobbyists. Like manyWatch Now >>
