This Old Tony
Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.
What do you mean a warped rotor will not do that ?? I'm a certified motorcycle mechanic and a warped rotor will cause spongy brakes !!!!!
I worked in the aviation industry for 40 years. We never welded 7075. That doesn't mean that you can't. But that you shouldn't. In aviation, 7075 is used in high strength applications. You don't weld it. Elsewhere, you can do what you like as long as you accept the responsibility for the consequences.
9:43 - Isn't _any_ time "sooner than later"? Or, if you regard the future as a whole, isn't the present instant the _only_ time that's "sooner than later"? TL;DR: "sooner, *rather than* later"
Trying not to sound to much of a smarty pants but could you not just put a bead of weld on the frame they sit against? Also,a "smidge" is a pretty inaccurate measurement - my dad always measured in gnats cock hairs. He'd be like "just move it a gnats cock hair to the left" etc. If something was a tight fit you could equate it to a gnats chuff apparently. Who knows what that is?!
Why not just weld the bike instead?
That intro tho.... heart stopped for a second.
Why didn’t you make a small weld on the frame?
Hahahahha that is to. Funny 🤣
Could you have not have added weld material to the other side of the foot peg stop? The motorbike side?
Would braising or soldering not be an option?
We only have your word that you are not a penguin, we've never seen your face. You may actually be a penguin.
How about putting a bead on the frame instead?
🧐 Watching this for the 4th time - so many hidden gems 😉
I don't even know why I find your videos so addictive. The first and last time I used a lathe, about 40 years ago, I ended up in hospital, To this day the ring finger on my left hand is about 2mm shorter than the one on the right.
5:38 'No other pegging permitted'. Oh my. 🤐
No other pegging lmao
Very entertaining high humor 👍
I love you old tony
Wait... couldn't you have welded something on the part of the frame where the pegs are pushing against the frame?
7075 my ass...send it to the lab...
Machine a shim space are out of hardened stainless folded over the sides and stick it behind the bolt not a safety issue it's called a brilliance is you which you have not
So, since I'm kind of a scrap yard scrapper who welds "trash" into useful stuff, I'm gonna ask: is there actually something that will explode if welded AND how can I avoid the welding police?
leave to canadians to complain about nut shots on a bike with no seat just a spot for you nuts to be tapped, ball tapping bIke fun?
A new rod and method has been made to weld these materials. Just last year.
7075 is a zinc aluminum alloy, zinc melts at a significantly lower temperature than aluminum and firms zinc oxide which is naturally slick, at the weld/parent metal junction you have this microscopic zinc oxide which is where the crack develops. Since the weld is in compression you may have a mechanical adhesion that will prevent the weld from falling off. If replacements were available you have to balance cost with benefit and I'll bet you did all that for about $2.00 an hour and you still have worn holes.
locktite and some shims.....boring though that is, best solution,.....
Love the whacky production style of tot's vidz. I have formerly adopted "extremely danger" into my own vernacular
You to smart, to be human. Lizard people? 🤔😜✌️
HDPE is my favorite plastic
220, 221; whatever it takes
Those are specially designed peg for pigeon toed people .
You are so weird. I love it!
That sh#$t at 0:20 was funny as he&%
3:37 congrats you've been demoted to the couch @This Old Tony
So the Scorpa brand name is for a mechanical proctologist? Hoping the bike removal was not as painful as the pedal breaking insertion process was.
I'll bet you can JB Weld them! See what I did there??
Are you a trials rider Old Tony?
Your glass has a crack
Love the FOOT PEG CLEANER decal..... G'day from MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA
Any chance you could have just welded onto the frame? Or did i miss that bit in the video? Not trying to be rude just wanna know if that wasn't an option at all.
I could have but that would have been a permanent modification to the bike.
Lmao great setup. Lol
I’m no egg spert but couldn’t you weld the part that the peg hits?
Great videos 😎 Thank you Tony 👍
Now I'm wondering what a penguin actually sounds like.
Why didn’t you put the weld bead on the pedal mount? I’m assuming the mint was steel.
That part on the bike @10:21 is a riving knife. It keeps your leg from being kicked back while it's being cut off.
3:38 T.T i died
Àbsolutely love your humor man! Keep on do in t the way you do. Just like The Duke, the big Lebowski s always right you know!
3:31 thank you. That#s what I came for.
That little bit at the intro reminded me of the time I almost lost a finger. That's not a joke.
Buy a Chinese Motorcycle (street) and we will have videos for 5 years. I can only imagine the repairs from a Ninja Knockoff LOL .
3:30 :D i was just waiting when he puls the wife on low mileage
I'm seeing new videos, but the "all uploads" playlist ain't getting any bigger. You'd be embarrassed (and I'd be ashamed) if you knew how much of your content I watched. Still though, I love that playlist, keep it updated please 😊
Allen Millyard made a famous down hill racing bike completely out of 7075-T6. Structural welds all over the place, the bike raced for years over punishing terrain. Curious how he managed to reliably weld a frame out of a “non weldable” alloy? In the video link he says so at 2:54 https://youtu.be/iUak9sqJmnM
Previous owner was heavy?
This Old Tony Lol! Thank you This Old Tony.
Maybe bush line the bolt holes?
How about doing a video about not welding wood ?
Can you braise 7075? With slightly lower heat would that be ‘Semi-Extreme Danger’?
Nice expensive machined aluminium alloy foot pegs...that use a cap screw as a hinge pin. Ffs.
220 221 whatever it takes "Mr Mom" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX3kxAA2L4Q
Great Video Tony. Very Funny and Informative
JEEZUS MAN! Gave me a heart attack with that intro. 😬
How can aluminium 7075 t5 or t6 is not weldable? I know various bike frames from big manufacturers or home made from 7075 t5 and t6 all welded.
Thumbs up without watching the video, based solely on the title of the video.👍
Can you do a router safety vid next?
hang on I just have to fetch clean pants.
Purple shock adds at least +5 to handling.
So did they hold up or did you take a glorious smash to the jewels?
i love you'r weard sense of humor
I do believe that the chain guard is to protect your leg from the flying chainsaw that is your cjain after it has decided to commit suicide Atleast that is what my chain guards are advertised for...
You are funny cause you do everything noone would do
The good news for you is that definitely you are not a narcissist. They can never admit a mistake.
I think the welds will be just fine, but a captive shim could have been used , maybe a strip of metal, with a hole in one end (held on with the bolt) comes out of the groove in the pedal, twists 90* and then bends down to fit between the pedal and the frame!
If it's metallic or even just slightly metallic....it can be welded 😔
This channel is edgy and informative, the perfect balance.
"Ultrasonic foot peg cleaner" the joke effort never stops here, cant get enough
One of these things might cost as much as 9 dollars: the energy bill to machine one by myself ( also including the equipment wear and time spent etc. ) maybe around 15 dollars. Fuck yeah I’m smart ;)
Great video, options discussed were same as mine. I don’t weld but I have learned a while ago why I couldn’t solder Aluminium as a kid! You also have better toys...CNC machining!
It's a scientifically proven fact that purple is more springy and durable than any other colour. Hence why it's the perfect colour for springs, coz it's not like you'd choose it because it looks good as it's also a scientifically proven fact that purple is the least cool colour for springs 😁
What are a pair of talking hands doing with a drink? They haven't even got a mouth!
dude you and AvE should do a collab.
Two can play that game!!!!
I think the best part of your videos is when you
"Most things fail in tension" Tell that to a balloon.. And for goddsake STOP climb-cutting on the router, whats worse is you know it ain't right !! 🙄😂😂
Very funny, subtle funny not wacka wacka wacka funny, subtle is better. Liked and subbed!
12:00 A neat useful hole in the meat grinder safety device. Just for the little bit of added excitement.
Bike frame looks like steel, why not weld that?
Can you fit bushings to the holes in the pegs?
Mechanic you blew a seal ??? Penguin.. No its Ice Cream
Just watching the freehand routing of that PVC piece with the bearing so low had me involuntarily retract my fingers. Glad it worked out and all fingers were still there.
Thanks man, your videos make me happy. hopefully someday soon ill buy a welder!!!!
@3:35 haha me too. I drive a "new" car being a 1996 model year, followed by an '88, '73'72 and yeah they are old but love them. lovely channel
