3XV R headers for custom pipes (and hopefully SP)
« on: May 23, 2020, 02:45:03 PM »
A few years ago I made, using some Martin77 headers Dan gave me, some custom headers for the SP pipes I had purchased.

I've since learned a bit more about welding and have a plasma cutter and what with lockdown I've decided to revisit them.

Using some Martin77 header blanks I've made some plasma cutter templates and been knocking up a practice piece. I need to refine my templates but I cut some pipe and up and practice some welds to see if it's feasible to Mig it or if I need to arc it instead.

Not to the correct length and the plate isn't right but it cleaned up ok and didn't break when I hit it with the hammer lots.

Hopefully I'll get some more time over the bank holiday weekend to remake mine and then start looking into using Paulyb44's SP cylinders to make some SP ones for him.

Pictures or the originals, plasma templates and the scrap/test piece made today.
