Regardless of how much you have supervised, that is a great consistent bead.

Not sure there's any gas in the bottle, either. Also the bottle says "Property Of Courage Breweries" on it ;)

Not bad :D . I'd recommend a touch more heat and a gnats less wire :wink: :D
Will they let you do braizing? Not much call for it work wise but a nice skill for the bike mad to have 8)

There's a massive brazing section there as well, but it was redundant when I was there..

Trying to get the volts correct to the material, along with wire speed and my speed, seems to be the biggest skill to learn at the moment...

I had an original Mini Clubman that was mainly rust, when I drove it off the driveway, you could see an outline where it it was parked, sort of like the Turin Shroud. :D

My missus is a classic mini owner, and when I showed her that, she couldn't stop laughing. :lol:

I think she's earmarked me to do some work on it over the winter.. :roll: :lol:
