    i hated to leave the holding pen's i'm building to work on the garbage compactor but the dept of sanitation won't pick it up without a safety chain. where the old one got to is anyone's guess. i had to walk about a half mile to get there so was glad to break out the new 110 stick welder instead of pushing the lincoln dinosaur with the square wheels.

    Man, I love those little Maxstar's. Only used them for stick a few times, but loved every minute of it.

    BTW, nice added "touch" on the clevis

    my max star replaces/augments my l-tec 90 pound mig machine. the l-tec was fine 25 years ago when i could throw it on my shoulder and run up 3 flight's of stairs. those day's are long gone so i'm grateful for this ten pound welder.

    Oh, well in that case I would probably gusset the sides for extra support. That tungsten is heavy stuff!

    Local casework company. They order these by the 100 a few times a year. They're in-wall supports, so they get bolted to 2x4 studs before the sheet rock goes up. 7/16 holes in the flat bar, and 3/16 holes in the angle, to attach counter tops. Delivered 89 to the powder coater yesterday, got 90 more to do.

    First repair I've done like this...

    Volkswagen aluminum wheel that a customer brought in. Said something went in the tire, and then right through the wheel. Me thinks his girlfriend's husband came home early. Looks an awful lot like a bullet hole to me

    Repair was ground smooth on the outside and lightly ground on the inside. Told the guy that we couldn't guarantee it would ever balance again.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    Hello everybody. I'm new to the forum but not completely new to welding. I own a 180 amp lincoln Arc welder.

    Although I'm no pro with years and years of experience I've been welding for around 6 years now.

    I've welded things together and they've held up all this time. But I wanted to do some bend tests on my welding to see if any of the welds would crack. "Which they didn't.

    Well today I headed off to our "me and my dad's" shop today to do some welding. I wanted to test my welding. Yeah I know that these aren't true, really true tests of my welding. But I wanted to see if my welds would hold without breaking or cracking.

    And I just so wanted to do some welding. I love melting metal together.

    I had 2 pieces of scrap plate laying around that I cut off for something else. I decided to weld them up and then put them in our press to try and break the weld.

    The weld held but the metal bent. Which is what I was hoping for.

    After welding the plate I decided to cut a piece of pipe in half and then weld it back together. "First time I welded a pipe" I then put it in the press too and tried to break the weld into but it held and the jack on the press slid to the side and shot the pipe out backwards. Good thing I was standing clear.

    It bent the pipe where the weld is but but didn't break the weld.

    I used 6011 1/8" rod and my Lincoln tombstone set at 115 amps.

    After doing these tests I decided to make me a jack crank handle for my fifth wheel trailer jacks. I used the square tube it had with it and cut and welded it.

    The plate isn't welded to the pipe it's just leaning against it for the pics.

    The first pic shows the bent plate and the last pic shows the weld on the same bent plate in the first pic.

    I'd love to find a place and get some real tests done on my welds soon. That would make me feel a whole lot better about my welds. Attachment 654191Attachment 654201Attachment 654211Attachment 654221

    Love the design. Looks killer; but I have to ask: why not do something more for a clamping system. Those worm clamps kind of look like poop compared to your bracket.

    Thanks.

    It doesn't need anything more than that to retain them and when the filters get clogged and have to be changed out during a pit or in the middle of the desert they make it fast and easy.
