Hello folks
Just ran across this site a couple nights ago and really enjoy it. You guys definitely have the best jokes.
I was looking for the latest in corrosion control, looks like LPS3 is still on top. Im putting a bike project on hold until I quit cussing.
Im new to computers but do have some history with Home Shop Machinist. Had an article included with the Projects 8, hard back. Under my given name Pat Tooke, A tale of a gap bed lathe.
Any way here are some photos of some corrosion I found .
A friend brought a motor cycle over to see if I could get running, been stored for ever. Evidently with water in the tank. The factory paint was in good shape, just stained by gas, not really leaking. When I went to clean it I thought the seam was leaking, easy fix. This is the tank after he sand blasted it. (guess I'll have to figure out how to post pics)

Welcome to the forum!

post photos by uploading them somewhere, I perfer http://imgur.com/ Because its just so damn simple.

imgur even gives you the IMG code to paste it in one of your posts (limit 4 per post) or you can just paste the url to the page imgur gives you (or the .jpg after that url) and have unlimited number of those in your post, but then people have to click the link to see the image.

Everyones 'attachments are turned off'
It means the forum won't host files for you, You can still make IMG and URL links however by hosting the files at a site like imgur

it took a while but the link showed up
I used flicker, the other might be too advanced for my limited computer vocabulary
thanks for the help
