Car Show at South Albany High School 2018

A quick slideshow of photos I took at the South Albany High School car show in Albany, OR. The weather was not cooperating. There was a high wind warning in effect and rain in the forecast. It was a small show, but had a good mix of classics, customs, hot rods, rat rods, old and new.

Harbor Freight - Bauer Band Saw, Unbox and Test

How does the Harbor Freight (Chicago Electric) Flux 125 (#63582) AC flux core welder compare to a Tweco (ESAB) Fabricator 141i (W1003141) DC welder?  In the fourth video of my Flux 125 series, I will do a weld test.  I will then cut and etch my welds and show you the results.

Dakota Water Pump Replacement & Making the Clutch Fan Tool

Replaced the water pump on my 1997 Dodge Dakota 5.2L 2WD pickup truck.  I didn't have the special tool required for the clutch fan. I made one using my Harbor Freight Flux 125 welder.  Then I finished replacing the water pump.
