Swept up in the shop the other day. was going to throw the junk away but started welding it together instead. This is what I ended up with.

Don't know if this will work, first post on this forum. Nice to see so many familiar names.

I love it. I made a rocking horse out of broken Jeep parts, for a White Elephant gift a few years ago. Keep it coming:cool:

That is very good! How about one of those things that balance on a pivot, I have seen them, just can't describe them.

"Junque" I love that one Franz.

Just for that here another I made a while ago.

Sorry, that is one lousy photograph. Dont know what went wrong there. I'll try and do a better one later.

One, here it is lightened up some. Hope you don't mind. I'm saving this for future ideas. You've got more vision for "junque" than I do. I need the help of others inspiration :)

I agree Jim314.

Onerod has given me some ideas which I also hope he doesn't mind if I keep.

A friend of mine here has a brother in Texas who makes weather vanes out of "junque". You know the kind, like the man chopping wood, the duck with wings "flapping" (actually rotating).

I too need some inspiration. And I thank anyone who is willing to share with me. If I come up with anything interesting I too will be glad to share.

This board has been great fun and interesting education. I started welding (O/A) back when I was in 7th grade. By the time I was a junior I was helping the shop class instructor teach welding. It kind of came naturally to me. The last four or five years I have not done too much (and I miss it) because of my present job. But, I will be retiring in a couple years and plan to go back to welding and fabricating even if on a smaller scale.

Thanks to all.

Here's a nice easy one for anyone who wants inspiration; couple of old sprokets, bolts, a few M.I. pipe fittings.....20 mins. to weld.
