Twin Turbo Hemi Jet Boat Update: Finnegan's Garage Ep.84

The turbo boat is back and one step closer to action on the water. In this video we finally connect the steering system from the front to the rear of the boat. Along the way we give you great tips for TIG welding aluminum parts using a Miller Welders Dynasty 280DX inverter machine. Everything from selecting a proper tungsten, cup, and gas lens is covered and we show you how we prepare tungsten for AC welding aluminum plate. There's not a whole lot left fabricate on the jet boat before we fire up the 711ci Sonny Leonard Hemi turbo engine. In upcoming videos we'll cover the turbo and electrical systems of the boat as well as wiring up the Holley Dominator EFI system. Thanks for watching.

Balling tungsten seems so old school... Easier to ball pure tungsten (green stripe on the tungsten). Run it at 75%, 120-180Hz and you can weld with a sharp point (well, almost sharp). Oh, and MIG with a spool gun is a whole lot easier...

Wouldn't it be much easier to make a aluminum bung and just weld it onto the plate. Takin the tungsten for a swim is so annoying.

Wouldn't it have been easier to weld a washer made of aluminum on it ? Cool video though

Finnegan's Garage, when this video started I thought you were going all Tai Lopez on us. "I'm here in my garage, with this new Jet Boat here. It's fun to drive in the Hollywood Hills." LoL! 😂😂

Awesome tig welding tips there mike, Great too see the jet boat getting closer to the water👍

Why didn't you just put a small bend in the 1/4 plate like you did the 5/16 plate ? Seemed like you wasted a lot of time since you already had the 1/4 finished.... Nice Build

That's not how you grind tungsten. The horizontal grind marks you just made restrict current, promote arc wander and can cause inclusions. Always grind your tungsten lengthwise.

Sir do you have a link for the website you got all the welding equipment from

You can use a piece of welders glass in front of the camera as a filter. I've done it to record long exposures and the sun. You can use it to film your welding. Works 100X better than an auto welding mask.

Love my Dynasty 210dx, I have a 280dx at work. Miller makes sweet tig machines for sure. I got the amplitude adjustment SD card for mine so I could change amps on the ep and en separate. Love the Furrick cups also. Crazy thing tho, I've never seen someone put tungsten in upside down with the gold 1.5% lanthanated marker showing out the cup. I guess when the making color burns off it's good after that but just never seen that before. Do you have a reason for doing this???

Why not 5052 grade aluminum? It would have better corrosion resistance than the 3000 series.

If you are looking for thickness, why don't you just weld the 1/4 inch thick plate to the 3/16 plate??? Then Tap it.

Looks like you could have just drilled hole and used nut on both sides...would have tied the plate to the boat better too....

Dude just send out the thicker plate to get it formed. Wow.

you should grind paralel to the rod. not across. that will focus the beam more instead of spreading it.

Tip for everyone; when shortening or cleaning a contaminated tungsten don’t actually break it off. Cut it off with a thin cut off wheel. Breaking a tungsten electrode will almost always crack the end which can propagate it’s way and ruin a good tungsten or worse a good part.

Cheers for the welding tips .These maybe dumb questions but ,Does the jet drive self centre from the power of it moving forward ? and is there a fail safe if a cable snaps or does the boat just loop in oneway and you limp it back to the dock ?

By thickening the plate with the welder, you un-temper the aluminium alloy. Chances are that it will actually be weaker than if you only had 2 thread engagement in the 3/16" plate.

Check out edge welding supply. They have some of the nicest Pyrex cups on the market and are decently priced. I run them at work. Just make sure you pay attention to where you sit your torch because they don’t bounce well when they hit the floor.

Wear a mask when grinding on Thoriated Tungsten electrodes... radioactive dust in your lungs spells certain cancer.
Projects in the Shed
beforebefore I came to comment the same thing, super dangerous grind tungsten without a proper mask.

Nice feature on the Miller...but you can just ball up the tungsten on DC. Switch back to AC and you're off and welding. Also, ball it up on a clean piece of Aluminum...you're just introducing impurities when using that dirty chunk of 1/4". Another great video!!
iamgriff Vuosi sitten
i can’t believe it took 4 minutes to say you’re tig welding in a boss in the new plate.

I'm a welder. Tig aluminum every day. Furick cups are not for 3/32 only. He makes different defusers for other size tungsten for his cups. Try welding with a #5 cup, no gas lens on aluminum. Most welders such as I prefer that setup as it works better. Nice machine. That's a bad ass miller.

why cant you Weld an aluminum nut on there as a boss and drill through thec enter of the nut/boss then thread tap all the way. HMMM. Then you will have ample thread and less dicking around.

When sharpening tungsten for any type of welding you always want the grind marks to run parallel to the tungsten. Helps prevent arc wander and improves arc control.

WOW you have hairy arms and hands! I seriously thought that was a cat, till you rolled your arm a little bit, and I could see your fingers. They’ve got to be causing a lot of turbulent air around you, can you feel it when you run? I wonder what your drag coefficient is🤔. If you ever lose a drag race in your boat, try shaving your arms, and see if that improves your ET. Other then that, your boat is coming along nicely! Thanks for the welding tips.

when i was a full time welder i would ball the tip on a copper plate

I wouldn't trust that on a jet boat with that much horsepower. Tig an aluminum threaded bung to the plate, much stronger. Imagine a steering failure at speed in that thing....not pretty.

I was thinking the same exact thing steering components threaded into 1/4" aluminum with an 1/8" of buildup??? Nope! To much at stake like Ohhh your life...

Mike, The Thorium used in 2% thoriated tungsten is a radioactive element and therefore can be dangerous to the health of those exposed to it and to the environment. I would recommend using at least a respirator while grinding the tungsten, it radioactive nasty stuff! A lot of companies (including mine) send the tips out for grinding and shaping. Be careful!

I really appreciate you taking the time to explain the differences in cups and gas nozzles. I do have a question on the choice of welder. Is there an advantage to using a dedicated tig machine over a a/c and d/c multi process machine?

f that you can keep the balled tungsten. sharpen it then just barely blunt the tip. if your melting 1/8 tungsten your doing it wrong.

I hate you. You have a boat. I don't. I would drown. Find another car. Cool tech, though, I must admit. All I can do is booger stick weld. It holds, but looks like old chewing gum stuck on there. Did I mention I hate you?...
