False Neutral Podcast #115 – The Return of ‘What’s The Ask?’

We had a lot of fun recording this month’s episode, and we think you will really enjoy listening. As always, we start with our Workshop Update. Garrett has finished upgrading not one workshop space, but two. Pete had surprising success with the flux-core (gasless mig) welder we discussed with Mike Festiva in Episode 111.

Afterwards, we play a few rounds of What’s The Ask? In this game-show-format discussion, Garrett and Eric must guess what the asking price for six bikes offered for sale online, based only on a photograph and classified ad copy. Photos of the bikes are shown below.

Pete’s method for positioning slugs inside the frame joints.
The cross-brace tack-welded in place. At the bottom of the photo, you can see where I’ve smoothed the plug weld on the outside of the tube using the tube sander in the background.
