    You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

      Top of the legs are straight on the z100, cz they are bent in a little.

      i need a pipe bender, thinking of one of those eBay ones with the 7 dies around $150, anyone have success using them? Need to bend 22mm.

          how come MBOZ is super quiet these days? Andy, Ray you guys still interested :-)

          trying to find time to build this thing but too busy working during the day, only time i have to play in the shed is after 9pm, can't make too much noise

          Anyways, I thought I could get a way with using a zed triple tree to make the z100 forks but due to the removable design, It is forcing me to do it properly, probably a good thing lol...

          The top and bottom plates are actually not as deep on the z100 as they are on a standard zed. Photos...

          Drilled out the tripple tree fork stem? not sure what it is called. Had to turn another stem insert to make sure the cut out is centered.

          cleaned it up a little and making sure it's round and fits inside head stem

          bottom race now fits in without the washer that normally goes in between the race and the bottom plate. the bottom plate is effectively the washer although a bit thicker.

          now the assembly can slide in between the top and bottom plate and secured with long bolt top to bottom, problem solvered..

          The top and bottom plates modified to be shallower

            now welding.... someone show me how to weld with this thing, bought it a while ago and have never used it. I hope it works because the D size argon just cost me $300! :-(

              been quiet for a while hey. i think a lot of people are doing the facebook thing, or i just piss to many people off

              their coming along good

              my tig is an al'cheapo so not to many knobs and switches like yours but it should have a pulse setting, the flow is probably timing for the argon when ya start and stop welding, you should see some of my tig welds you'll work it out, set ya amps and see what happens also check your argon flow from the bottle, i was surprised how little you use for a TIG compared to MIG. i think you'll find it a good unit, give yaself some practice with it.
