    Alternatively, are you offering to weld a bunch of bus seats together?

    Yes, do you already have the jig to hold them in place? My welder is right on the limit tho...1/4" aluminum is the max.

    Bill, if there's anything I can do to help, I'm free until April 6th and I'd be more than happy to lend you a hand with anything.

    Tubing is Schedule 40 (.14"). Flanges are 3/8" thick. Central plenums are 2"x4.5"x6" (big blocks of aluminum).

    Jig is just the heads off a B27 with two crossmembers holding them together (you use an old K-Jet manifold to make sure it's aligned before building the manifold inside of it). Jig allows the manifold to be flipped over to weld the underside while everything is still bolted in place (before the jig the underside was welded while the manifold was loose on the bench).
