A bit but I was more pissed off. It went up like an Easter Egg then ripped accross the Front.
I tried to save the base tonight but it is way too distorted to ever get the bolts anywhere near. I've half heartedly started to make a new Tank tonight.

I am not sure what the proper way is but yea I start at the middle working outward and spot weld usually a bit closer then an inch tho.

As indicated...PSI pounds per square inch. If you have 10 PSI, that is distributed over the surface area that contains it. It is the same force in a football or over the hull of a battleship...difference being the square inches of surface that force is acting upon. Although I am not sure how you are containing 10 psi in your battleship hull?

The main thing being the even pressure distribution. In a round ball there is even force that keeps it round. In a motorcycle tank, the pressure will try to turn the tank shape into a ball (as close as it can get anyways).

Another way to look at it might be putting 10 psig (pounds per square inch gas) of air into a 1" cylinder or putting the same 10 psig into a 36" cylinder...it is the square inches of surface on the end of the cylinder piston that lets the larger cylinder lift many times the weight of the 10 psig.

Also explains why a larger engine piston makes more power than a smaller diameter piston...surface area that gas is pushing on.

This I have seen myself with dished in sides instantly becoming dished OUT sides and numbing my fingertips (not to mention scarring the piss outta me) in the process.

Yeah was just wondering if you had experience with warping form laying to much weld at once.

Not real recently but that is because I tack everything as a matter of habit even small pieces get tacked up before the are welded and going a step further back make sure the pieces really fit well in the first place with no gaps THIS will make your tacking go easier and faster and that will make your welding go easier and faster. If I see guys trying to rush anything it is the prep work before even tacking. Trying to force it into position as your welding is the recipe for crappy results.

Hey Ron,

Good write up. Not sure why I didn't see it months ago. I like the oil to store parts in. I wonder if BP would let me use their oil spill to store my shit in???

I've been away from shit for a while, wallowing in my little whiney bitch mood over my shop gettin canceled.

Anyway, good ta see ya still active. I'll get there soon.......I hope....

Hey Vico, Good to see ya back man.
Been in a bit of a whiney bitch mood myself recently thanks to 2 cases where guys that were in a deal with me went belly up and reneged on contracts after they assured me everything would be fine and to send them the parts. WTF? Is this the state of the business right now?
Both guys have sent me long sad stories that blamed their problems on hard luck and misfortune......nothing to do with high overhead and poor planning was it? Fuck maybe thier dad's broke their arms when they were 6
Be a victim, Depression is very trendy right now.
Rant over.

Well thats done the trick for me Dose of my own medicine. (actually I nicked that off Blue from BSH)

I can stop annoying Andy and Frankee by kicking things around the Shed now and get on with re-making this fucking Tank.
It pissed me off so much because every single thing on that bastard bike has had to be made twice or more. It should have been finished ages ago.

Edit:-
Ps. Vico, get in that Shed and build something Lad

You're absolutely right. I need to get out and do SOMEthing. Even if it's wrong....

I gotta start by "finding" my "shed". It's been pretty much a clusterfuck since the Laughlin Run....
