    I need your proudest pictures!

    I want to put together a "gallery" on Welding Design and Fabrication's website, and I am in need of your Proudest Pics! Please be sure that these are YOUR pictures, and include a brief caption explaining it. The ideal size of the picture will be 595 x 335 pixels. You will be featured on the website, credit given, with your caption. This may end up being an ongoing thing - I'm not sure, and so much depends on what I receive. So this is your moment! Seize it!!

    Thanks for your cooperation!

    I am also VERY proud when we get done with my free TIG clinic and everyone that attended goes home a better welder than when they showed up...

    Well here you go too! I'm in the #200 class and I believe that the picture explains the rest. This was a job at Clallum Bay, WA., a bit of tight quarters. Best regards, Allan

    lol. I thought that was a sculpture you made of a person welding. I had to look closer and realized it was indeed a person in that picture welding.

    They should have paid your a trillion dollars an hour for doing that in that tight space.

    Re: I need your proudest pictures!

    Well Chad, I was lucky on a number of counts when I did that work. The box was an open-air top and I had plenty of time to get myself into that position. I had assistance from a couple of other folks to provide me with any tools, etc. that I needed. I also had one of the guys running the foot pedal for me. I used a Thermal Arc 190 GTS inverter to do the work and it was powered off of a Lincoln Ranger 9. If anyone has had experience with these, they are awesome little units, full hi-freq. starts, lift-arc starts, upslope/downslope, pulse capability, foot pedal or otherwise amperage control, all in a 20 lb machine. Many folks that do this type of work will use mirrors to make a weld such as you see in that picture. I haven't had enough experience to feel comfortable with that in this instance. So I opted to do it the "hard way" and just get myself into position. It went well and I had a love/hate experience on the job overall. Thanks for the interest and comments. Best regards, Allan

    I got lost in zap's pictures. I'll be doing this once a week. Check it out! And remember, like the posts above - it isn't just about the welding. So don't be bashful!!

    Also, just a reminder - I need titles for the images, and a caption (or description). So this is your chance to be creative! New galleries every week, so stay tuned!

    It looks like you took more time climbing in there and getting comfortable (probly not) than actual welding.
    What are you welding on? Gas valves, electrical or?

    Re: I need your proudest pictures!

    Hello Insaneride, the piping that is in that photo has an inner "screwed together" line system and an outer welded sleeve pipe system, it was to supply diesel to a remotely located generator. The pipe and fittings that I welded on were there to act as a "fail-safe/tattle-tail" in case the screwed pipe failed. This was about protection of the environment and not allowing any leaks to compromise it due in part to it's geographical location.

    The larger pipe lengths were slipped over the smaller pipe and then the elbows and other fitting were either slipped over and welded together, or in the case of the elbows, after they had been split with a saw they were fitted over the underlying screwed elbows and welded together. So you had a pipe within a pipe. There were sensors located in the "vault" area that you see me in in the picture. 2 of the lines(pressure/return) came from the tank and terminated in the vault and the other 2 lines(pressure/return) were from the engine of the generator and terminated in the vault too and this is where they were connected together with a flexible hose assembly. This is also where the sensors were located to provide electronic monitoring of the system's integrity(leaking/not leaking). Had to be a pressurized, leak-down tested system, around 30 psi or so.

    As to time: probably 50/50 on time to get in and time to weld. Thanks for the interest and best regards, Allan

    I'm looking for more pictures! Maybe we should have a Hall of Shame instead? Or maybe post in a gallery your favorite welding gear. Lots of history in there! Let me know your thoughts. Please remember I need captions for the images when you post them.

    Not sure if this fits what you're looking for but I never got around to posting these a couple years ago when our eldest granddaughter's drawing was selected for the 2012 Airgas calendar. Her biological maternal grandmother Charlotte who submitted her entry works for Airgas and no, that's not me in welding gear.

    Of course I just realized there may be an "advertising" issue with using these.
