I’ve been trying to find a decent Pexto sheet metal corner notcher although new they are around $1500 and used around $900-$1000.  I found this Jet corner notcher on Craig’s list for $250 which is a great price for the condition.  It’s not a Pexto but for the money I’ll give it a shot.  I’ll make a stand for it as well.

That's a steal!  Awesome!

Is there intake manifold fabrication in your future?

That was a thought but my main consideration is a deep sump oil pan.  I also plan to make a proper air cleaner for my tunnel ram intake manifold.  Another possibility is a radiator fan shroud.

If I win a bid on ebay, I plan to drive to New Jersey this weekend to pick up a Pexto sheet metal shear.

I wouldn't drive 10 hours each way if the price wasn't right.   Mr. Green

Thanks guys.  It was 12 hours each way and New Jersey seems to be nothing but toll roads. lol.  Between there and going through Ohio I must have spent close to $100 in tolls. 



PS-  I bought the silver '04 Dak with a 3.7 earlier this year.  Much better gas mileage and much peppier than my '90 dak with 3.9.

Nice Dakota, looks to be in great shape,  all the Dakotas in Illinois with that body style are very rusty.  Is it 4x4?

I glad you won the bid, congrats.

The tolls are very steep once your east of Indiana, there are ways around them but you'll add 5 hours each way.  22 Years ago when I was in semi-pro Legion Baseball I decided not to take the team bus and drive myself to Utica, NY, then on to Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto Canada then back to Detroit to play a few games.  My pay didn't pay enough for Tolls/gas alone to even get to NY, so I took side roads and ended up getting no sleep before the games haha.  I lived off of road side fruit stands for 2 weeks LOL.

Yeah, most of them are rust buckets but this one only had 74,000 miles on it.  However, I did notice that it must have been in an accident and whoever tried to fix it didn't do a very good job.  So I've been taking care of things a bit at a time.  All-in-all it's a nice little truck though. It's a 2-wheel drive SXT.

Funny story about the tolls.   Laughing

Made a stand for the corner notcher with casters for easy maneuvering around the shop.  I TIG welded the outside for appearance and MIG welded the inside for speed.  Just have to make the two shelves and it is good to go.

Great work.

How do you like the TIG welding? Was it a hard learning curve? Are the supplies expensive?

Love the TIG but it does take some practice.  Biggest initial problem was not holding the tungsten tip close enough to the metal and touching the tungsten to the metal while welding.  At my age my eyes aren't as good as they used to be so I wear reading glasses now while welding.  Major improvement when you can see what you are doing.  lol  It seems more expensive with consumables but I haven't really kept track of it.  You can control TIG better and it doesn't leave spatter to clean up but the metal has to be cleaner to begin with as well.  Each type of welding has its place though.  Taking a night class would surely help the beginner.

I use to weld at caterpillar many years ago but that was only 440volt industrial Mig welders, takes some skill but not a whole lot with that much power.  Taking a night class is a good idea, I may do that.
