    Spool gun work on the ladder cover. These are the latches. They will prevent the slop that a traditional latch would allow. There are two.

    I went back and closed that corner too.

    Thanks! It was fun, I got to see some unexpected old friends, made some new ones. I really struggled getting back to work, even though it was welding.

    @6Boys What is that? Kinda looks like a chiminea on a table top but there is a hole in the bottom of it and the chimney is welded shut. Maybe a big swinging candelabra?

    Thanks bud. I like a #7 cup unless I'm in a tight spot then I'll switch to a #5. I usually use a 3/32 5356.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    making progress on my biggest project since going out on my own. thought i was going to pulse mig the whole thing but i was wrong. so far its tig on the butt joints and pulse mig on the fillets. i've also finally dialed in my passivating and elctropolishing procedure. its a 10,000 gal 10g stainless tank for a small islands water department. i'm confident in the build now but transportation is the next issue. the state park boat launch has threatened the landing craft operator with legal action if we use their launch. my shop is only a couple hundred yards from the boat launch but now its plan b, c, or maybe z night ops haha. no matter, it will get there and its been a fun build.

    This may be: the most purposeful / poorly over welded / weldment, ever posted . . .

    What is its function . . . ?

    ps - is the lifting-eye heavy enough - considering the girth of the knee-band . . . ?

    forgive me. this was the week before that, and only kinda metal related. had to make a one piece stainless door pan for a panoramic door i installed, 18' wide. its not all metal work for me! and who cares to see the boring door pan?! i dont think i'll ever fork out the dough for a door like this but i can appreciate why others would.

    promise i'm done, same week as the door. actually on the other side of the lake from the panoramic door, a fire place door. the other work i did there is blah. unique, simple and clean was the customers design request. they seemed happy with it.

    Opus,
    I knew you'd say something like that!
    It is a chamber to safely disassemble scrap air brake cannisters.
    Not my design.
    It weighs about 150lbs so I have no doubt the lifting eye will be just fine.

    Is the base welded on, or something else? Assuming just flat stainless?

    Interesting project.

    nice work on the stainless tank. the parkies won't let you use their launch? no problem- weld a couple clips with holes,attach some cable and tow the tank to where you need to go. if it'll float that is

    Many years ago the Army had a similar helicopter we called the CH-54 Sky-Crane or Flying Crane. Could lift heavy artillery, other helicopters or armored personnel carriers and had a "people Pod" that snapped into the middle to transport a whole bunch of troops.
