    Hi Marco,
    I'm sorry for the delay getting back to you on this. I really appreciate the feedback. It's been a fun journey so far. My machine is pretty basic. I pretty much set it at about 80 amps and then use the pedal. I never go full pedal (even with the heat sinks), but I like the extra amps to get my tacks done quickly and to establish a puddle quickly when I start a bead. When I start a bead, I set my bead width in my mind's eye, get a puddle going, feed it until it gets to be the width that I want, then I start in a steady movement and dab. I'm always watching the toes of the puddle and paying attention to the width. I push the puddle and keep it satisfied with enough filler to a) keep my width consistent, and b) prevent any undercut. In my own welds, I do not like to see any waviness in the width caused by pausing, dabbing, moving. That's just me and how I was taught. The difficult part for me is in the acute angles, which requires pushing more wire faster to keep my width constant and paying close attention to the root of the joint. I don't want any cold lap or lack of fusion at the root. For me, I love welding the sides. It flows so nicely and I think a weldor can be very artistic on those runs.

    I hope that all makes sense. If I can clarify anything, please let me know. Thanks again!
    Mike

    Just got this guy built up last night.

    IMG_3534.jpg


    From the classifieds, allegedly the builder's own, but may as well been built for me. Little bit higher BB than the last cx rig, this thing flies through the corners. First practice last night, I think this is going to be a good one.
    This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the bike.

    Hi Mike,

    This sort of thing has me wondering how long until you will be offering customer builds in titanium and aluminium? Is this something people in the queue are able to opt for currently?

    Apologies if this has been covered in one of the FNL threads already.

    It's the one year anniversary of the first ride on my Zank today. It's got a few battle scars now but still rides just as sweetly. You did good bro.

    Thanks!

    Last mention was heat sink development. I think that was somewhere in the last five pages of the VSalon Zanconato gallery.

    I'm going to go back to staring at BB close-up above. Probably need a few beers to help me forget those dropouts exist.

    Introducing the aluminum version of the Road32. Gobs of clearance for those fat road tires. A little tighter wheelbase compared to a cyclocross bike. A position closer to or the same as your road position. And tons of fun.
