Curious how you control or predict the amount of distortion that will occur when building something like this? I can't imagine.

Looks like a car frame, so I would think you want two of these to come out very close to the same. Did that happen as expected?

Perhaps, you take this to a frame shop after all welding is done and have it straightened?

WOW! Almost a year since anyone has posted anything new on this thread.

I thought I would post a few welds from my sandrail build.

Mike.

Thanks Rich, I'm still attending college but am graduating this year with an A.S in welding technology and an A.S for Engenerring software. I learned all my welding in college, it was a great experience.

On the heavier material, such as 3/16 and 1/4, we would run either .035 or .045 in a spray or semi-spray transfer mode. The only time we had any failures was from an inexperienced welder that wasn't familiar with the process
