Years ago you could put a little carbide and water in a paint tin with a pin hole in the lid. give it a shake and then throw lighted matches at it. It made a very impressive bang. I haven't seen carbide in many years.

I have read mixed reviews on gasless mig welders  I'm curious as to the truth. I was looking at a few gasless welders and some inverter welders. I saw a guy doing what looked like magic with an inverter welder on a rusty exhaust now that's beyond my skill level ! Anyone with gasless or inverter that wants to add their 2/- Id be interested in reading it.

Everything else / Compressor oil grade
« on: May 13, 2019, 10:11:45 PM »
I was at the tyre shop today and I noticed he had a 50l compressor sitting in the office. A few words 20 changed hands and I have it. He said the motor was working so I took the head off cleaned the reed valves and I have a 20 compressor. The oil was black and thin so it's been drained. My question is can I use car engine oil? I have 10W40 semi synthetic and 5W30 synthetic oil in the shed. I could give the local parts guy 10 for 500 mil of compressor oil but I'd hate to do it if I didn't have to. The compressor is Bergin branded so likely Chinese. Any ideas?

It's almost impossible to get oxygen and acetylene in Ireland. You need to be a professional user like a car body shop, welding company etc.

Is that Due to " security" Concerns or some other reason?
Im not sure Glort I tried to buy it years ago and was refused.

If you cant get the software to crop photographs register with dropbox. you can easily upload photos and simply post a link to whatever photos you want to share.

Glort is a multi talented and knowledgeable individual he's never going to tell you anything that's not true. I was very worried about dripping the water into my engine however it went very well the engine was hot water turned to steam and as you know steam is great at cleaning anything. Glort also has the ability to swear for 15 minutes without repeating himself.

If its making 230/40 volts it could maybe fry an older 110volt TV. My tv seems to work at 200v and 240v and al voltages in between. I have a 230 volt supply
