    One thing I find extremely enjoyable about TIG welding is the endless tweaking I can do. Whether it's a slight pause before or after a dip, change in cadence, change in travel speed, change in filler size and how much is pushed per dip, change in tungsten geometry, slight change in arc length, or any of the other variables in an endless list, every little change is reflected in the as-cast metal. Sometimes the changes are deliberate, and sometimes they are completely by accident. Sometimes I'll look at a bead and ask myself what I just did differently, and then, more importantly, ask myself if I can do it again. It's a path of endless learning. Today was one of those fun little breakthroughs.

    I was able to get my nerd on with three of the best weldors and teachers in the world on the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast this week. There isn't a ton of bike content, but if you ever wondered what weldors think and obsess about, here is your chance to get into that scary world.

    I know next to nothing about welding, but listened to the whole thing (got real lost in the more technical parts), and it will also give you a good idea of what drives Mike and what his process is. Definitely worth it and makes me glad I have a Zank incoming shortly.

    Hi folks,
    2018 marks 20 years since I built my first frame and 10 years since I built the first
    Max Project bike. Building that bike took me back to the early 90s and pouring over pictures from the Classics. Nostalgia in overdrive. Now that I've got 10 more years of metal work under me and a few new tricks up my sleeve, I'm anxious to celebrate 20 years of bike making and turn my remaining stash of Max lugs into five special bikes. I have a vision and am ready to pour my heart and soul into these bikes. If you are interested in claiming one of the three remaining, please get in touch. Thank you for considering going on this journey with me!

    All I've got to say is get on this. Aside from the fact these are gorgeous, Mike knows how to build bikes that are ment to be ridden hard. My steel Z bike is the most confidence inspiring bike I've got and that is saying alot.

    GO!

    #1801 - Aluminum Road32. I may have to change the name of this model.

    Customer need - to shred all kinds of surfaces.

    Solution - room for 650x47 and 700x40 and go rip.

    Warning - extreme tech nerd gibberish follows that I hope may help any aluminum weldors out there.
    On a personal weld-nerd note, I did a little tuning of my balance, EN/EP amps, and wave form. I have been really happy with soft square wave, but wanted to spend some more time with triangular wave. I found it really made a difference and I could turn my balance up while still getting the cleaning action I needed and extending electrode life.
