    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    I have a lady friend who is very much into agility with her Border Collie dog and she wanted some equipment so she could pratice at home.
    I made four height adjustable jumps out of pvc pipe(no welding involved) and a base for weave poles out of some flat bar and tube.
    The piece of equipment i'm making now is a see saw. A lot of the metal is from my scrab bin except the angle iron, the flat bar and the pvc pipe.
    I made the see saw plank in two parts so it's easier to store away.
    The whole lot will cost her a lot less than the equipment that's advertised on the internet.

    You have displayed a disturbing intensity of love for this lady.

    That was in the past. She is the mother of my son but we split up 10+ years ago. We still get along fine, and i like the tinkering.
    I do this for the dog, because i love that dog.

    That's funny but sadly enough also very true.
    We had a very dry year in 2018. Scorching summer and not a lot of rain in fall and winter. Spring 2019 has been fairly dry as well so far.
    The groundwater level is a lot lower than it should be, and because of that the dykes dry out and lose their strength. Foundation of some houses start to shift because of the dry soil.
    I live just a few miles from a dyke up in the north, so i'll be one of the first ones to get wet feet if that one breaks.
    There are rumours that summer 2019 is gonna be a scorcher as well. Last week we had a short hot spell with a lot of big thunderstorms and in the southern parts even some small tornadoes. Now, tornadoes is quight a new thing for the Netherlands. I think global warming is making its presence felt.

    Built a couple of these, the main body and flange came from customer, added the "Tee".



    Kinda a odd job, not only did they spec both flanges to be one holed but they didn't allow much room for welding.

    (Heaven help me if I need to grind out and make a repair).

    Always enjoy seeing your work Sask, that is indeed tight. Pardon my ignorance but what do you mean by "spec both flanges to be one-holed"? I want to guess that was TIG welded but maybe only room in there for a MIG nozzle?

    Generally flanges are installed with "two holes" on the level, (with the centerline passing between two holes). This design called for the centerline to pass right through one of the holes on the flange, (thus "one holed"). Thats just one "oddity" on this drawing.

    Mostly all MIG welded (316 stainless) but the inside of the slip on flange I TIG welded it cause it was very close to the edge and I did't want to risk melting (or spatter, or stray arc strike) the flange face.

    Inside welds were ground flush so that they can tile the interior.

    Not so much here. I've seen mosquito swarms so thick I couldn't see through them. In that nearby town, officials resorted to spraying daily. A pickup drove the low lying roads spraying out a fog of insecticide all summer.

    That's some nice guard rails for the diggers Rustin8 You going to have bolt on mounts or just hard mount em' ?



    Had to do a bit of bending and welding on the new dump trailer today... we had a load of brush in it the other day and while dumping some of it caught the removable cross bar which lifted the gate enough to defeat the spreader latches and then it just bent the crap out of the whole tailgate frame

    So..... after I got the rear frame bent back close to what it should be... and saw what little weld the trailer had to hold it in place

    I got it prepped for new tubes and yes... that rusty colored area to the left of my grinding is what is underneath the powdercoating that PJTrailers put on their products...and it aint rust colored primer

    Put new tubes on both sides of the trailer cause they were both ripped of and had the same little tack welds holding it together... also added a lower tube to give it a lot more strength... don't know why they didn't have one there.

    And to make it so when you're putting the crossbar back in place you can do it without a hammer... added an extension to the cam binder that pulls the top of the trailer back together so you can drop the pins back in it

    Oh, also welded up a lock for the spreader gate lever so it won't come open by accident like the last on did and bend the crap out of the gate frame
