If anyone attending FART has a portable welder and wants to use it, the left turn signal tab on my Tourist is broken.  I'd been thinking about getting a welder myself and learning, but with all the other demands on my time I don't see it happening anytime soon.

Anyone willing to help, let me know - I can pay or swap you beer for the welding.

Thanks!

I'm getting the impression that broken turn signal tabs is a chronic Ural failing. Chalk it up to vibration induced metal fatigue.

Mine went in a most unusual way...  in the rear, the top of the hole that the turn signal stalk mounts in broke off! The rest of the tab is there, just as strong as ever, and with a couple of jagged edges to rip open the unwary.

I'm afraid that portable welders aren't all that portable.
Mine would fill half the trunk of my car and I'd need the proper 220v outlet to use it there.

I think by "portable" they mean it can moved around the shop easily.

Anytime you put something long like a turn signal on a thin piece of tack welded sheet steel and then add the vibes from bouncing up & down constantly, it's gonna induce a stress crack in time.

Any chance you'll pass through SE Va.? If you could bring your rig to my welder it's just a few minutes work to fix.

See y'all at FART!

Rich - yes, I'm not too familiar with welders.  I was browsing Harbor Freight and they seem to have some 'carry-able' ones like this:  http://www.harborfre...temnumber=94056  - so I thought perhaps someone might have something similar they could lug up.

I still think it would be useful to know how to weld, it's just getting off my a$$ and doing it.  How close are you to Yorktown,VA?  If I can't get this fixed at the rally maybe a trip up will be in order - my sister is in Yorktown so I could visit her at the same time.

I live about 45 minutes SE of Yorktown just a 1/4 mile off Rt. 17.

My MIG welder uses gas not flux wire. So it'll be a neat almost spatter free weld. Wire brush it once cool and touch up the paint. The actual welding will take just a minute.

Check you local community college for welding classes. That's where I got formal instruction. You can do OK learning by yourself. But there is no substitute for good formal instruction in this skill!

The really small 110v portable MIGs use flux wire. Makes a nastier weld with much spatter and the flux is a bear to clean off. A good gas rigged MIG will weld almost as clean as a TIG will!

Fall rally update:  Just talked to the KOA campground, and Saturday night they will be having an Oktoberfest dinner at 5:30.  They are providing the brats and campers will bring the side dishes (German theme preferred).  For those unable to bring a dish, they are asking a donation of $4 per person.  I think this will be a nice event for our group to attend.  Thanks Mark MB750 for the tip.

Hey Bural!!!!!

Were you able to get the big coffee pot for us to use?

Donna and I picked up a can of coffee, some sugar and half & half and cups and spoons today at the store.

Let me knwo if we have the use of that pot. Otherwise we'll have to have volunteers bring a couple regular home ones.

I'm baking Bicotti tonight!!  :wacko:

See y'all there Friday!

With the high price of petrol, we didn't make the trip down to Steve's to pick it up.  We are bringing 2 coffe makers and have plenty of coffee.  What we will need is firewood.  I think Jan will drive the truck again, so we can have plenty.
