  • 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.

    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....

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

    NEVER USE STAINLESS STEEL CABLE FOR STEERING CABLES ON A JET BOAT. STAINLESS CABLES WILL WORK HARDEN GOING AROUND PULLEYS ECT AND SNAP, BAD MOVE. TRUST ME , NZ JET BOATER.

    why not weld a round disc, wahser, etc. Then drill and tap. would look much nicer. Just curious why this way?
