How do I weld upright posts on square tube base so that same size square tube stays 90 degree when tacked.

Anytime you weld something or even tack anything together, your joints are going to move some. You could position your pieces to compensate for this or you could clamp them down. But no matter what, when that weld puddle solidifies, it will pull and the stresses exerted on your work piece can be pretty high. If you can't clamp it in place to minimize movement, try tacking one spot on one side, then--using a your favorite hammer--influence your piece back straight and tack the other side. Once you have solid tacks that are going to hold your piece as square as you can make them, then weld it out, alternating sides and direction of travel. Of course minimize heat input as much as possible. Travel speed has more to do with heat input than amperage or voltage in many cases. Its a little hard to give you specific recommendations on your project without knowing more about your set up there. So tack, straighten, tack, straighten, tack straighten and so one...then weld it out.

Remove a rear fender from a 2007 rav 4

The short answer is that it is not bolted on and it isn't meant to be removed. The vehicle is uni-body construction, meaning that it is all welded together to form a unit structure and anything that changes the structure could be life threatening. Here is s picture of a Rav4 with the tail light out:
To get the outer sheet metal off you need to take out the interior trim and covers to expose the welded structure. The spot welds can be drilled out with a spot weld cutter. Not a job for most people. If it isn't welded back in place correctly, it will affect wheel alignment, rear door sealing and worst case the rear suspension could fall out on the highway. I suggest only a trusted body repair shop handle something like this.

How to Replace a radiator support panel in vy SS commodore

you have drill out all the sport welds if you start on a front clip from a wreck find all the spot welds, grind all the welds without cutting into the front you need, making note where the welds are, using a center punch mark the center of welds on your front, using a drill the same size as the spot weld, drill them all out, there may be 100+ of them carefully measuring where it has to go back to, draw a diagram, measure again, then check your measurements again. remove the panel, set new frame in place, weld in the spots where you drilled measure again. Or take it to a panel beater because you havn't even looked at paint yet

Need to know how to remove hood hinges that have factory welded or glued to firewall, 1993 ford ranger?

Most are spot welded into place. The only way to do it is to cut them out, using a grinder to remove the spot welds as best as possible then removing the hinge with a dead blow hammer, or use a metal chisel to help dislodge it the rest of the way

Hi! I have a compressor that leaks air on the bottom of the tank. I neglected to drain it during it's life time, so it got rusty at one spot and, when I pump air, it leaks. Is it repairable? Could any...

Due to the explosive ability of compressed air, I would not recommend any repairs to a compressor tank. It is possible to weld a patch on the rusty spot but the heat would weaken the rest of the tank and you could face a very dangerous explosion if the tank should fail at another spot. As an authorized service center, if I have to replace an air tank I have to drill holes in the old tank to render it useless and safe. Save yourself a huge nightmare and buy a new compressor.

Lincoln AC/DC 225 control dials inoperative

the only way you can get a repair manual is to be a service shop,but what your saying is the dial turns with no resistance.did anyone turn the dial while someone was welding?if so the dial has to be replace,what happens is the contacts inside the unit weld together becuase once the dial is turning it breaks contact then makes contact welding the dial in place.You would not be able to turn the if the dial turns very easy I would check to see if the dial handle is loose on its shaft.the unit can be taken apart but it just takes a little is a very basic unit with not to many internal parts.good luck,you can fix the problem.
