    Little whip action with the mig...I don’t weld often but like to try different techniques when I do for the practice.


    That’s a cool idea!

    I got half that many grinders in 4 different buildings.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    Finally got around to a small welding project I needed to do since a couple doors on my truck got ripped off while driving though a dark warehouse with the doors down and loaded with stuff wasn't my fault

    The little cast aluminum pin hinge receptacle busted all apart so I decided to remake it in steel
    My micro welds turned out great! all 3 and a half inches of em'

    Was gonna just find a chunk of aluminum and throw it on the mill but decided I had plenty of steel laying around and the welder was sitting right there... so I cut a piece of 3/16 at 2inches x 1 inch and transferred the holes over then cut a piece of 3/8ths to 1 inch x .75inch and welded it between the holes and finally drilled the hinge hole .325 deep.

    HEH heh , that's one of those breakaway padlock keys, I think there are only a couple different keys master makes for them. Put it on that magnet a year or so ago so it'd always be with the truck.

    Oh yeah!!!, best invention since the sharpie marking pen

    That's my small set goes to 1/2inch also have one that goes 1/2 to 1" and some other sets but they don't hold points like these do just thought of one thing I don't have.... a metric transfer set...hmmm have to look for one although I try to stay away from that kind of holes.

    40 years ago here in Canada we were switching to metric. The federal government had a program offering to pay for half the cost of new metric tools and additional storage boxes to mechanics.


    Enter your typical shady Snap-on franchisee. He helped me with “paperwork” to acquire all your typical metric wrenches including punches chisels and a new roll cab.

    Just goes to show you even way back then they didn’t discriminate taking money from real mechanics OR dumb farmboys.

    I always cheated and used the punches out of the Piranha for transferring marks.

    Ended up finding brackets online that match what is already here. They would probably be fun to make with a plasma cutter and a press brake. They are kind of beefy for their size, I'm guessing 1/8" thick.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    Today I welded up the "Texas Power Strip"



    It's a massive, sturdy, rugged beast! The whole thing with the 80ft cord (triple 4awg/8awg) probably weighs as much as I do! To lift it is good exercise I tell you! Toss it around, throw it in the truck, drop it from a skyscraper, ain't nothing gonna happen to this sucker! This is for running off my generator. I had to build something with all the scrap I had laying around.
