So now I feel the need to clarify my comments. Oh just to mention; there are fabricators who glue tubing together!That's allTom XL-7
I did not look up the post you are referring to but:I remember it because it is true Scott.First of all I don't think I referenced 4130 steelSecond they are glueing everything including skins. I have a high school classmate and friend : a metalurgist with one of the few steel producers in trhis country who wants to know what I can do with 0.005 steel sheet. Any ideas?My mental reference belonged to bicycle frames which I have a lot of experience with..As heavy as I am I still ride bicycles, for exercise now , for transportation during those ancient education years.I have always liked 4130 brazed framesthe world has gone to alum.Someone with bolt cutter usurped my steel bike and a lot of other things. I replaced with an alum frame with carbon fiber forks.The bike feels like I am riding without a seat over railroad tracks.The 4130 frames are accused of flexing during the power stroke.Yes but wouldn't it unwind when the power stroke is off ?Regardless I have for 40 years used traps so I can pull on the upstroke as well as push on the down.The glued frames are alum bicycle and three wheel designs. I will dig up a reference at my leisure but this crap has been going on for years .Note I didn"t say I approvedTom XL-7 Wow I googled gluing alum frames, Imagine that! I won't bother you with the details
There is a welding book that is quite popular by a William French. Tom XL-7
