Thanks for the info,thats exactly what I needed. I will order some blade stock tomorrow. Your blade last a year? holy crap,you must be the only one useing it,Mine last a while and then when I really need it,I screw it up and dont have enough stock to build another.The plasma cutter is the last choice for me too,I cant stand the dust or fumes anymore,I also baught a steel bladed chop saw three years ago,couldnt take the dust from it either,plus it never cut straight anyway,I keep it around because I need to cut hardened stuff like axles every once in a while,but otherwise I never use it.
I took my chop saw to Sumners last weekend and used it there,I think he will have one soon. grin
Thanks again,Phil.

Another thing to use with your cutters and aluminum is WD40.  Works good.  I didn't think of it, had a machinist friend tell me about it.  I might have to re-do my belt drive on the band-saw and make it better and try one of those 1/4 inch blades.  Willie do you order from Enco??  Got a part number for it?? Is it a skip tooth?? There are lots of similar blades out there.

Thanks, Sum

P.S. Phil why do I need to but a saw when I can use yours??  You guys don't want to use one of those saws.  You will hate your cutoff wheel after that.

better still use tapping fluid....quite often we cut out Al parts with a jigsaw....once you get to about 3/16 thick use a wood blade or the coarsest "metal" blade you can get and a generous dollop of goop , just put it on the blade clamp where it will run down the blade coz it's easier than running it around the line .I haven't cut thicker than 1/2 inch but it does that fine.....it's the quietest and most economical method I've found .

I've also heard of the carbide tip saw on the 9 inch circular for the really thick stuff , I don't know that that would be so quiet.

I've cut a bunch of Al on my able saw with a 10" 60T carbide blade. I've cut 1/8" plate and 2" angle with no issues, other than a little noise. I just wear my ear-muffs I bought for my router. Speaking of which, I've used the router on Al as well to make slotted holes for adjustment. You can do a lot to Al with good old woodworking tools.

I have used a table saw on aluminum before also,the thing you forgot to mention in your post was not only do you need ear muffs,you need welding gloves,leather welding coat and full face sheild,man does those little pieces burn like a son of a dog, holy crap, leaves little blisters all over,but just couldnt stop,the piece was turning out to good to stop. shocked There you have it,the rest of that story.

Looks really nice, now what is he going to due until May??  I've seen different ideas for rear brakes, but I think this one might get interesting.

Good going Willie,

Sum

Just curious Willie. Is there any way of setting the toe other than with the inner rod ends? Is it critical on a side car rig? I'm a car guy and really don't know.

Thanks,
Pete

peter jack  yes toe and camber the side car wheel much like the rear wheel has no adjustment for caster -- are adjustable the 4 places the sidecar attach to the bike there are heim joints with aboit an inch of adjustment --when i build all of my bikes i do so in a jig on final assembly im usually within a half turn on the heims--

Just curious,is the water bottle in the back pocket to cool your ars when the tire rubs threw the seat of your pants grin
That things looks awesome !! I guess I didnt realize it was a single lung until these last pictures.I guess the little blue bottle makes up for the absence of the other cylinder,then again maybe I dont know what the hell Im talking about either,not all that up on motorcycle stuff.Anyway,looks great.Always excited to see pictures of others work.
                                                  Later,Phil.

peter sorry i had to turn off my computer  the bike stands straight up and down all three wheels are 90 degrees with the ground --the sidecar wheel is paralel with the centerline of the bike seems to work on my bike yes its a buell blast  500 cc 


rusty i dont make any saliva so im stuck with the water bottle  --the bike is pretty much through the first stage now its gong to get exciting  stay tuned   --they also make a tri metal blade for the bandsaws but costly    willie buchta
