  • Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.

      Why not add weld to the frame?

          This Old Tony, how difficult would it be to produce a tap and die set for worm threads, for use on wood?
          That felt like a run on sentence somehow...

            I would think a warped rotor is pretty apparent... wouldn't you feel it in the in your hands?

              Hello friends!
              I can't find Tonys vidjeo building his hydraulic press, is it gone?
              Please and thanks

                Man I can't believe how fast the channel is growing now! He just posted his 500k vid 10 months ago. I can't think of many channels that put in the effort he does unless they are full-time YouTuber's. I'd say he's definitely earned it. Thanks Tony.

                          I have a similar problem with my KTM front brakes being spongy when the pads get half worn out. I’ve gone to great efforts of bleeding them with no joy. But replacing the pads restores my braking strength.

                                            Simple question, why didn't you just add some weld to the frame side and file it back? Just curious as there may be something obvious I'm missing.

                                              that would work! but it's a permanent modification to the bike.

We're all gentlemen, there's no reason to exclude someone just because he occasionally likes for his partner to take the reins, as it were... Do you what you like with a person what consents, gents! The world's too small and life's too short to feel bad about what makes you feel good.

And for your extra bonus points if it's Magnesium use white vinegar and will also turn grey black bubbling. yes you can tig weld magnesium with the right filler and lots of argon.

                                                                                      I just have to say here that the production value of your videos is quite impressive. So what were you in your former life, machine operator of film producer? You are definitely quite adept at both.
