An attempt was made to weld. The idea was to do a simple but weld of two pipes. Yes, they were small diameter and thinner than I realized, and with large 22mm hex heads in the way, but no excuses.
I’m not happy with the result, but its better than nothing, and the moral of the story is to never give up. I pushed, and learned, and the weld hopefully will hold even if its not pretty.

I tried to use the Duraheat TT-15S propane heater, as I have in a past episode, but on its second use, it decided to fail. And it nearly failed catastrophically. You don’t mess around with compressed propane.

This thing will KILL! It is dangerous, so here I am, to show you the symptoms. If it makes this sound, or if you don’t see a flame around the burner, then shut off the propane tank immediately and stop using it.
I can’t say if this is a design defect or a manufacturing defect. As of now, Amazon is investigating (whatever that means), but while editing the video they did issue a full refund, as well as a 15 buck gift card. Sure, I almost die, if not for paying attention, and they give you 15 bucks.
I don’t want the money. I want heat! But I guess I have to freeze!!!

A few episodes I built the Tactical Sanding Cabinet, and the results were…moderate. This time, I use some REAL sand blasting medium, coal byproducts (20/40 grit) and it works. Boy, does it ever!
Before and after shots of the rusted, greasy, gross, wool covered air fitting. And it comes out to clean bare metal. Heavy metal!
I also review a mini Shop-vac to recover any spilt sanding material, and it does the job great!

Razorfist, aka Rageaholic had many of his social media accounted banned or removed. At first, it seemed as if he had been banned by tech giants, but later, accounts began popping up restores. This led some to believe that he had deliberately deleted his accounts, and later had them restored.

Or, was it a girlfriend or other significant other, scorned or whatnot that did this in an attempt to hurt him? I can't say how the man took it, but my advice, is just IDGAF. Whatever, so you have a video of you beating the metal lizzard? Cmon, DSP did that and he's ok...ish...

Three funny (and one maybe useful?) tips on how to handle snow if youre really lazy (or if your back hurts too much!)
Im actually really sick, and wanted to record something else, and wasnt going to use this footage, beyond just for my own family videos kinda thing...I thought the snow on the roof was cool.

I tried...I really did try to make this funny....I just want to get back on my feet, stop with the soup and eat some red meat and get back to banging out some HEAVY METAL!

Any donations...if you can afford to do so. Times are tough. End e-begging

What better time to review tools that burn that during a blizzard? So, I got the cheapest propane heater, the Duraheat TT-15S. It mounts directly to a standard 20lbs propane tank (like the one most of you have for the barbeque).
The more important tool, is the Bernz-O-Matic TS8000 propylene torch, with push button ignition and variable flow. Its cast aluminum with brass tubing, and is made in the US (surprisingly). This torch spreads out the heat in such a way as to heat up a larger section as opposed to the pencil flame torch that you saw me use with propane a few episodes ago.
So, I set out on fabricating a patch, and while it’s fairly simple, one corner is rather complex in shape, which requires heating. 1mm and thicker cannot be easily bent cold, so the torch does great, as it saves time, heating things up much faster. Sure it’s not acetylene and oxygen, but it’s the next best thing (unless you got some old MAP gas lying around lol)

I figured Id work in the garage even during a blizzard. I will review some heating tools, but before that, I wanted to check how much snow we got, and how bad the blizzard is. Not bad, but definitely a serious snow fall. Its fun!

PS. Im a small channel, so Bitchute wont play my videos even though I pay. Like I said, Im a pleb and not some kind of nobility.

Oh the poor billionaires crying on CNBC over poor plebs like us making money. Well, the reality is that nobody will make money, but it is a unique situation that could change how stocks are traded.

Of course, so long as you don’t go crying to the government for a bailout if you lose whatever you put in a failing company. Don’t be one of those people, and own it!

I saw one of Vee's (Romanian_TVee) videos and this is my response, as he misses the scope of certain things, and misses the biggest issue of this entire debacle.

Edit at uploading: The brokers no longer allow purchase of GME. Those that bought GME are NOT selling, and asking for 5000 per share. It looks like you wont be complaining to daddy govt (which doesnt seem to be doing anything, SEC regs don't apply to them. Well, no surprise there). So, this is one smart way to attack corruption in a system that was once fair.)
Imagine, every struggling and failing company being kept afloat, with high stock prices because people (there’s more of us that can buy just one share) than all the elites and hedge fund managers etc. No company would go bankrupt? But how long until Current President Biden bails out these hedge funds? Boomers gotta keep their 401k!

More disasters. Water heater (boiler) blew up and flooded my basement. So..while I go into despair over how to pay for all this, here are the steps you should immediately once you find your boiler leaking.
It will or should minimized the damage, and once you finish this, move your stuff up and away from any water…I love my life!

With Russia facing two enemies on either side, things are not looking good. Who will do what? Are we facing a world war? Will it go nuclear? What can the people do about it in the involved nations. This is an equation with many variables, that can be altered by one single person with one good or fatally wrong decision.

As an aside, I do not know if I will continue with these types of videos. They are rather successful, but they do take a lot out of me (Im not E-begging, hence no donor link), and Id much rather work on the cars and do those videos, and at least for a while, pretend things are ok. In the end, the fate of the country is no longer in the peoples' hands, and there is nothing any one of us can do. I don't know.

I take on welding, and while I'm just starting, I do know how to learn, and the biggest hurdle is just getting into it. Start small and work your way up. I do talk about a few tricks I have already learned (but am far from mastering).

However this episode was more difficult for me, as I have a few other setbacks with fabricating patchwork for the Ranchero bed. 2mm thick sheetmetal is a pain in the but to shape and form, so today, damn near nothing worked and that's why its best to sometimes just...walk away.

Leave it for another day.

Briefing on the strategic failings of Potus45 during the last 4 years, and how that impacted current events and state of affairs. The country is divided, and war is looming with Russia, but more on the international consequences in a later video.

As I post this, a HUGE number of non-leftist channels have been banned from alt-tech sites, so our days our numbered. Now its time to survive, just survive. Trump had that opportunity to change things, or at the very least delay it, but he knew best, did not listen to anyone, and thought that his support would overwhelm his opposition. He probably should have spent more time reading The Art of War. But then again, he did exactly what he believed is best, peace, at any cost.

(((EDIT: This is one of my best, over-engineered diy tools. It was meant to be a simple, durable, versatile and highly mobile sand blasting and chemical cleaning cabinet. If you have any ideas on how to make it better...shut up! I'm kidding. I'd love to hear them, and implement them. Likewise, feel free to use this design yourself, either the exact same way or bits and pieces.

We need to learn how to be both self reliant and ingenious, as well as open to our community, helping out with ideas and so on. So back to the regular description)))

There are three qualities any project can have, good, fast, or cheap, but you can only pick two of those at a time.
I made my own home-made sand blasting cabinet, called the tactical sanding cabinet. It is light, durable, and multi-capable. It can be used to wash parts, sand blast them while being environmentally safe

I go into a more in depth speculation based on hard facts, on the location of 75-0125, the E4-B Nightwatch aircraft. I also analyse the strategic situation from both sides, and what may come.
This is an EXCLUSIVE. Nobody has managed to track the plane (it is all from declassified sources, and no DOD regulations have been violated)

Deep Space Nine on the dynamics, reasons and aftermath of revolution. Things will never be the same, but yet, more of the same...
We live in uncertain times

Deep Space Nine teaches us some politics and civic dynamics
Might also be prophetic (ha, the prophets)

Yes, still injured but much better, so a new episode is coming!

2020 is over, so....yeah. 2021 is gonna be...interesting

This is probably the most accurate means of understanding politics, based on values. What are your values? What is near and dear to you?
Politics is downstram from culture, and cultures are made from individuals.

It's just something that has been on my mind, and with my injury, I figured I may return to this format, as times are very uncertain.

This is a nutty skit.

I look at a car, as if it was a country, a nation. And I talk immigration…in terms of a car.
Yes, its silly, but I think it should make you all laugh.

So, illegal oxygen! Turning sheet metal to rust! No, that’s not welcome in our cars! Oxygen should only go through the intake, and provide power!
Like I said…just watch it.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in case I dont post...Im actually dealing with some more serious medical problems. Hopefully the VA wont kill me...

The Ranchero project goes on! More prepping tips on how to remove rust and prep metal for future welding.
But first, we have to jack the rear of the car up, to remove the tires. It comes down to using plenty of jack stands, knowing their placement to prevent chassis flexing. Plan ahead. This isnt the thing you want to screw up.

An important thing I should say. If your gut tells you to stop, then stop. Don’t rely on jacks preloading suspension or other parts. Just get more jack stands!
Onto removing wheels, I use the Milwaukee M18 Fuel impact, and it worked like a charm. I do recommend using offset sockets, but it still managed with the standard shallow ones.

The light on the M18 does come in handie, especially since I have a cramped space.
With the wheels removed, I went back to more grinding, removing rusted parts and grinding down to bare metal. For the Ranchero (as well as El Camino or any pickup bed) don’t forget about the wheel wells, so take a wire wheel to remove the caked on diry, damaged paint and rust proofing.
Its slow work, but it gives you an opportunity to check out other components for rest that may be in that general area. Once you know where the holes are, mark them, and move on!

Another very important aspect, is knowing where to cut, and how much. If you have a unibody car (and even cars with smaller or weaker chassis), don’t cut it all at once. The body will flex, and without a lot of sheet metal removed, it may not be able to hold its own weight.
So make a plan, stop often and assess the situation, and use the proper tools.

I do another unboxing, and testing of a brand new tool. It should be interesting, and the idea seems promising.
It’s a drill mounted sheet metal nibbler, made my Dicfeos. They call it is a double headed nibbler.
I try…and I mean I try. They claim it should cut sheet metal of 1.2mm steel, but it fails.

So, yeah, nice packaging, feel to it, but in the end, it is just a gimmick, and a failing tool. It might work for some, but mostly for fencing, very thin car sheet metal (I mean, very thin). So if you think you can get into those hard places where a grinder can’t fit, don’t bother. This will fail you!

We are also very fortunate to get some backing, but a new start-up company. Thank you Directly25 LLC, the new owners of the DAC Dynasty IP!

When doing work on floor boards, you have to make sure no water can get into the cabin! This goes doubly if the car will be outside at any point.
First, identify the rust holes. Then mark them with a marker or welder’s chalk. And then get to cutting!

This is also a review on the Dremel 4000, and how poor the cutting discs are, that eat up fast or disintegrate. The quality is beyond poor, rendering it borderline useless to anyone that needs to get any work done.

Corners are the biggest issue when cutting, and while the angle grinder does a great job, it has trouble fitting in corners.
Keep in mind to always put the angle grinder on for safety.

I still have to try with the Dremel though, but it continuously fails, discs biting the dust over and over, twenty in total!
In the end, if comes down to using a hammer and chisel, and my new favorite, the Vampliers extractor pliers!

Just keep in mind, that you should always know what is underneath the cutting area. Inspect as best you can, crawl under the car, get a camera under, do what you can! You don’t want to cut the frame or chassis. Also, you can better see the rust holes from below as light reveals them.

Did I mention the Vampliers? They are outstanding at doing their job, as well as other jobs they werent meant for.

You should try to remove rusted sheetmetal in one piece, so you can trace the outline onto the new metal, but in many cases the metal may be too rusted, or simple impossible. Here, the sheet metal is welded from below, and thus cannot come out in one piece. Yes, its more work, but such is life.

As you remove pieces, stop and inspect where any holes are, where water can come in. While you do this, revise your plan. Think more than just one step ahead.
Going back to cutting, you can use metal fatigue to tear pieces off, jerking in back and forth with break each piece off, and having a good set of pliers makes this part a lot easier.
Tin snips are also good, but I found they don’t do well at cutting in weird corners, but they can cut tabs that can be broken off with the pliers.

Every one is talking about shaving. So, here is the most important tool in your garage.

Clippers, or shavers, or whatever you want to call them.

I shave my beard off, trim in and then use the BIC to tidy up.

I decided it was time to get some good thread gauges.

Enter the Mitutoyo SAE and metric thread gauges. The packaging might be awkward but the tools are excellent. The Mitutoyo 950-253 is a 51 leaf thread gauge, going from 4 to 84 threads per inch. It should cover pretty much any kind of bolt you encounter in a car or truck.

The Mitutoyo 188-153 is the metric thread pitch gauge. While it has fewer leaves, only 28, its covers most all of the metric sizes used in automotive applications.
Both have steel screws so you can replace a single leaf or change the order if you need to. Each leaf is also stampled so none of that laser etching that fades away, leaving you wondering what TPI you have!

Can you measure threads? Sure, but sometimes, the eyes fail, threads get damaged and the best way to get the thread count on a bolt or screw is to use a thread gauge.
The Mitutoyos are built to last, made from stainless steel, and oddly enough they are Made in USA. Actually this is one of the reasons they don’t look as polished (literally!) as the Mitutoyos made in Japan.
