    Liquid fert bowser

    Just finished messing on with this last week

    it was a french milk tanker

    weve added a belly tank for clean water for washing out and various valve work

    it has two tanks front one holds 4000l and back one 10 000 l

    That looks a tidy job Jonnieboy.
    The TIG welding looks a tidy job. How hard is the TIG to use. I was thinking about getting one to do a bit of stainless work.

    tig welding is not bad to do

    probably best advice is to get a high frequency start one ,some of the tig /arc invertors are scratch start like a stick welder and the tungsten tips dont like touching the metal as it means a trip to the bench grinder to resharpen it

    its like gas bottle welding get a melt going then dip your filler rod in as you go

    but I might be wrong as I'm self taught

    Looks like you have pretty much finished it. But if you need any stainless steel fittings, there is a firm called Sinderby Stainless at Topcliffe. They carry a lot of stock (although they have to order in 3") and are reasonably priced compared to others that we have tried.

    There was a few odds and ends with the tanker when it came

    we had to cut a few pipes and weld in 2" spigots but apart from the bit of 2" pipe we got from Andersons thats all we needed and murray had them in
