Been in my shop a little while today.  Got some more parts blasted & under primer, and the dash tower is in my mini E-tank now too.  It'll have to be flipped to get both ends.  I do believe the only parts not under primer now are the dash tower, seat mount frame, & the seat base.  The seat base just can't be blasted in the cabinet, as it's simply too big....or more like the cabinet is too small! :smilewink:   Bigger is almost always better unless you're talking about a migraine!  The seat frame got e-tanked, but I prefer to blast after brushing off, so I'll use my pot blaster outside another day to finish it.

Here's pics of today's accomplishments.  The dash tower has finished stripping on the one side, and is now flipped to do the other side.  Should be finished before I get done milking tonight.  Have my DC welder set on 40 amps.  It's great using a welder as a supply & getting it done fast!

I wondered if I could use my welder since it's DC power. Thanks Daniel

 

Looking really good.

Sounds like your a busy boy, getting her done. :thumbs:

 

I like the Etank setup with the welder.

The idea of a welder probably works much better! But, because of the duty cycle it will not be feeding power all the time. So, depending on the duty cycle you might not be cleaning any faster.

This welder has a 100%duty cycle, it's a professional grade unit.  Full power for this welder is 310 amps. And I'm only using 50 amps till the water is warm, then I drop it down.   Once the water is warm, I can strip a part in one hour.   I set it down to 25 amps for while I'm milking.

Just be sure + goes to the anode, negative to the part.  My welder has a lever to switch polarity, so I can swap ground to electrode as far as which is + & - .

Very good point Daniel! I went and found a LINK to explain the polarities for those who might try it. I would not want to hear that somebody ruined their tractor parts!

The dash tower was pretty much done, other than wire brushing.  Kinda tired, so I just hooked my battery charger to it for the night and I'll clean it up sometime tomorrow.

Daniel are you only using one annode in the tank?? I have a battery charger with the ability to do 2, 20 and 40, it also has the jumpstart mode of 225. How would you use it?? I was figuring I could not get anything done till spring since the weather was colder. Good to hear I may can continue to do some work!

 

Looking good Daniel! You will get it finished before spring at the rate you are going!

Scott, two anodes.  The  1 1/2" pipe on one side, and a 2 x 1/4" steel strap on the other.

OK, finally got the last part under primer, & went back over others with another primer coat.  I'm sure I've left out some tiny parts, but they can get spray can primer when I discover them.  I had to use my pot blaster outside before lunch to finish the seat pan, but it's now under primer too.  Not sure when I'll start shooting paint again, but not the next couple of days for sure.  I have too many farm chores needing tending.

Don't forget that one you dropped, and bounced under the bench. Nothing worse than missing parts

when you get to final assembly.

Well actually, too many left over parts, isn't good either.

I always thought if you didn't have any left over parts you should tear it back down and see where you put them. LOL
