JD's Pipe Job
  • JD Brewer - Truck Pipe Fits Part 1

    How to fit a piece of pipe in the field. Things didn't quite go as planned in this video, so JD made a follow-up video that you can watch here:

  • JD Brewer - Fireball Pipe Fits Part 2

    The same pipe fits from part 1 made with fireball tool squares. JD wasn't happy with the fit up in the previous video, so he re-did them using his Fireball tools

  • JD Brewer - Truck Pipe Welds Part 3

    Now let's weld the pipes from the previous videos together

  • JD Brewer - Pipe Install Part 5

    This video shows the installation of the prefabricated pipe pieces.

  • JD Brewer - Pipe Takeouts Part 6

    This video is showing how I go from an overall length to smaller cuts minus the fittings, gaskets and other takeouts.

  • JD Brewer - Pipe Takeout Part 7

    This video highlights how to fit and measure your pipe to match your prints. I am making 2 identical pieces made up of 3 fittings and 2 pieces of pipe each. (the phrase of the day is "no big deal")

  • JD Brewer - Stick vs DSFC pipe part 8

    In this video, I weld two identical pieces of pipe with two different processes. Both pieces have tig root and tig hot pass welds. One is welded with 3/32 7018 and the other is welded with .045 dsfc. Both pieces are welded with 8 total weld passes.

  • JD Brewer - Pipe Part 9

    This video is the last part of the pipe job I've been working on. This is the installation of the pipe pieces and water filter on the main 600psi airline. This video also shows the installation of the drain piping to the outside drain.
