What's the trick to end the fire? And still let it look like rust.

That I don,t know.

All the rust rtreatments I have turn the steel black.

May have to try an artificial patina.

Or,

Build it ot of High nickel steel, and let it sit out for 100 years. Like real rats

I suppose a real good chemical cleaning, ( carbon tetrachloride or something similar), followed by an etching acid, a good baking soda rinse, a good wipe with 99 % Isopropyl alch, or acetone, and a clear coat might work for a while.

so I started on a double pully clutch, but for the pullys bearings I need 5/8' bolts in order to make things work. Lock nuts will have to be in place. unfortunately my welders gun isn't working right, so no progress. ugh

If its jammed, take off the little tip piece, and pull it the wire out...if that doesn't work, and it starts and stops a lot, you welding wire may have rusted.

While my welders down, and its looking like im getting a new welder, I went to my friends house and he was remaking a dirt hill and I got this shot while I was recording him, lol. I think on mu tractor im going to cut the old oem pully off the shaft and move the 5 1/2" mow deck pully up. im not shure, but I got to either change the front or the back. I might just suck it up and do the 7" rear pully. I either wasted wasted $6 on the rear or $18 on the front pullys.

I might trade some huge stroll tires for some 14" by 4" wide tires for my mower. My future plans are getting new bushing for those tires (if they work, and these will also be my front tires, much taller) and I might detach the front end and weld it lower so the front of the mower is 2-4" taller (lifted look) but that all depends on when I get a welder. Wish me luck!!

I think i settled on a new welder, either this one: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200403263_200403263
Or this one: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200332691_200332691
Both get good reviews but a $160 something price difference. I think ill shoot for the 135, i can sell my GM lq4 6.0L engine parts for it. i have $210 saved up.

If your still saving, I don't know how much mine was, but I got a welder from NT, It works perfect on just about evering. It worked on the 1/2 in thick steel plating I had for my front bumper...took forever to cut that.
