    Getting the plastic off a quad

    Took the 6mm bolt out completely, still the steering bracket was rock solid. Loosened off the big nuts and from the underneath that wasn't going to help. Time to get the 'persuading' tools out ;) After giving it a WD40 squirt I give the bracket a couple of taps with the hammer, nah no good...

    Getting the plastic off a quad

    Going to work on it again today. Decided to unscrew the 6mm bolt all the way and see what happens. Last resort is unscrewing the big nut 🤞 Don't wish to be rude but was that a joke 😬

    Getting the plastic off a quad

    I got a quad at the right price... FREE (y) I have to repair the brakes and engine so I gotta take off the plastic, BUT that's the issue. The handle bars bracket has got me stumped. When I remove the handle bars you can see a 6mm bolt in the bracket so me thinks unscrew that and all should be...

    Gas vs GassLess welding

    I move me car out of the garage and weld in there. I got the garage roller door up and the back door open AND the fan running 😂, you may call me paranoid about the fumes (when I weld it smells like I'm on a tropical island 🤣🤣).... but I get ya point.

    One step backwards.

    Nice home video 👍 I kinda like the smell of the pull start 🤦‍♂️ but the noise is a problem in the backyard. Like you say electric may be the way to go. Gee Functional Artist you got electric videos going back 5 years, now that's commitment 😉

    One step backwards.

    I live in suburbia on typical 1/4 acre block. Reason I bought gokart was the grandson (nearly 2 years old) luved sitting in the car's driver's seat playing with the steering wheel 🤦‍♂️. His parents aren't impressed though 😆. We can drive it around the backyard a bit but gee, I didn't know it...

    Ride Videos: GEGcorp2012 Trike

    I have a GoPro 8 and it has far better stabilization than the earlier models. I've only used it on my bicycle and it's very smooth. Like to see your GoPro results on your trike ;)

    "Scottydownunder" as in from the 'land down under'? If so what part? I'm just south of Sydney.

    Gas vs GassLess welding

    Never thought of that (flux forming a gas bubble around the arc, I assumed it just mixed with the puddle to kind of help clean the surface).

    Gas vs GassLess welding

    I always setup a fan close to the job when I weld, to disperse the fumes. Annoyingly I have the cool air on my face when I weld 🤦‍♂️, ah well (fan blades are 18" (46cm) across 😬).

    "Ziegenstall Motorenschmiede" presents The Vale Special (07-11-21 update i can actually see progress with)

    I'm 1.5hr south of Sydney (Australia) and here we would call you 'a bit of a character' (meaning 'If you say that someone is a character, you mean that they are interesting or amusing) 😊 I have to be careful how I word things because when they translate into US colloquialisms, they might mean...
