Default Grantly's Portfolio (ish)

I started taking pictures of some of the stuff I was building at work a while back and thought I'd throw them up on here. (I think I made more H-series manifolds than anything else but ironically I don't have any pictures of one)

Sorry some of the pictures suck, let me know what ya think.

Nice work! I'll be making some stainless headers in a week or so. What is the best way to go about the back purging? seperate tank with regulator or a T into the gas for the torch?

What material did you use? 304? 321? or something else? 308-L filler? What size filler would you use on .065" wall 304?

After talking to some people I'm pretty set on back purge, just not sure how I want to go about it. probably going to do an extra tank.

Honestly, I couldn't tell ya at the moment what material it is exactly. As far as the filler size goes, I always just used what the situation called for I guess. If for some reason there is a gap somewhere, thicker rod. And usually at the head flange and turbo flanges I'd use thicker rod, but I'm using more heat too.

For purging we use seperate tanks. I usually don't have the pressure on the purge tank set nearly as high as the welder tank.
