    These items are going to be sand blasted and then painted to slow the time for corrosion since they will be on a boat.
    I have mentioned it before, but we had 8 bottles of medical grade helium several years ago. I initially tried to return some of them for credit on our account but the store would not accept them, even with the shrink wrap still on the valve. I am now down to a little over 4 bottles.
    My finance people have asked in the past why we are paying lease fees on all these tanks. I only use one bottle of HE or so a year. I still have one full sized bottle of O2 I need to use up but rarely use Oxy-acetylene at work.
    I may break out the Broco cutting torch and play with it in the future just to have some fun and use some O2.

    Pat,

    One more flow meter and a Y-connector and you can easily have a "poor-mans" gas mixing set up so you can play around with different He/Ar mixes for various aluminum welding situations. I think it'd go a long way to helping you out for the kinds of things I see you welding.

There are 2 pull out trailer hitch tooling mounts on one end of the table.

    HT2, another flow meter and "Y" is in my list of things to get for work. In the interim, I may try to do some partial pressure blending of my own.

    I think I'm in the right thread now! Thanks HT2!

    Made a security cover for the access ladder. 8ft tall, 20" wide. Welded end caps in.

    The last picture is how bad the smoke here has been for the last couple weeks.

    this is my latest project. carte' blanche on overtime. a few year's ago the prison laundry got 3 new machines. i built a base for the biggest washer using plans supplied by the manufacturer. fast forward to last week when out of the blue the laundry officer discovers the remaining machines are shifting on their concrete pads.
    these are built from 4" H beams and will be through bolted with 6" fish plates and 1" threaded rods at each corner. welded with 7018 straight from the oven.

    What do you get to do when you are not building stuff?

    Fish smoker....... Have to do the rack, fire bricks, water pan and smoke chip box this afternoon. Needs cord hangers and a nice door latch.No thermometer. I'll run it several days, oil season the inside and make a dial of actual temps.
    Fish racks but also hangers in case he gets wild and wants do do ribs or hams or...... 70 to 165 F in 3-4 minutes on 110.
    175 C(350) as fast, but on 220 .
    The thermostat is horizontal and the burners click back and forth/left to right to keep it even if the door is opened.
    1 1/2 insulated throughout. Double wall 16. The castors suck but it will seldom get moved.

    Is this unit going inside a coverd patio area? Seems like it would need to be indoor to be effective. Welcome to the forum btw

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    No it sets outside and the heat it put off is much more than a open campfire,no smoke in your face and burns incredibly complete without messing the fire at all. The three vents at the base make for a very good draw.

    those look very nice. almost a rocket stove type set up...I like that the flame and embers are kept inside the unit and the warming rack on top...what kind of tank did you use?
