    Well there is your answer Mikee.. I cant make a new hood for my beetle

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    got in this cementtruck today.


    He had smashed the rear fender on the right side and it was beyond repair..
    All of the mounting brackets were bent too, but we heated those and pulled them back with the forklift..


    Made a new one in 3mm steel and moved over all brackets and stuff from the smashed one.

    I think it will be powdercoated white and put back on tomorrow

    Well, i dont think i could make a hood.
    Today,s project was a gate for a customers garden.
    Here is what im going to replace..

    He wants to keep this lowbudget, so we wont redo the lettering..

    Here is what i did.


    Wanted to give it a little twist, so i put in a "flower"
    Drawed it in Autocad an cut it out with the cncplasma.
    Then bent it a bit, and gave it some notches with a chisel


    Will put on some hinges and a lock tomorrow, then som black powdercoat as usual

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Im pretty pleased to be able to be creative and do my projects like i want to.
    My boss trust me, and usually say " do what you think is best." And most of the time it works well..

    When it comes to the fire pit, i gave it to my uncle when he turned 60 this summer.
    Pictures is gone. I cant find them
    I have a few pictures from my uncles birthday. Ill have to use one of them.

    He had a garden party and the fire pit were burning all night.

    You can buy it here, but i dont think you want to.. they are expencive

    Actually im making a new one now..
    In stainless steel.
    I got hold of a hothwater tank from our local swimminghall, and the pit will be 80 cm in diameter.. Its gonna be a big one!

    Hope to get it ready for christmasholiday

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Finished the lock for the last gate i am making.
    Made the lock in 3mm stainless

    and it all finished and black


    Have started on a "ornament" to have on the top of my new firepit..
    I like flames, and im going to make this one with 3 tops..? The height is about 25-30 cm
    Have finished 2 tops and i am pleased with the result so far. I cut them out by hand and tigweld them together. I use 1,5 mm stainless steel plate so it will match the stainless pit

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Powdercoated the fire pit grey, and a rainy day i got to test it:-)


    I am making a table for a small barbecue cabin with a woodstove in center.

    Im going to fill in with woodwork in the middle.
    Im not getting paid for this work, so it takes some time, doing it in between everything else.

    I had a customer coming by with a wooden "3D drawing.." Can you build me one like this?

    Had to try..

    Well the customer got happy

    Cool. Let us know how the Powdercoat holds up to the heat. I seem to remember, but could be wrong, that PC holds up to higher heat than the 400* it's applied at, once it cures.
    " 3D wood drawing", I gotta remember that.
    Is it a part for a boat????

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Im going to have a little bit clearance to the oven. a 1/2 inch or so. I dont think heat will be a problem.

    And yes, the "3D drawing" is a mast for ĺ boat

    Thanks SWells;-)
    the pictures will keep coming

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Beautiful work on everything, thanks for sharing. I gotta get some pics of my moms vw. She has a clean as a whistle 70 convertible, and I had a bunch myself, I love em! A few pages back you asked what you could do to make your scrolls look nicer, the only thing I would suggest is if your using a homemade jig, which I do alot, I would try to get away from where it goes straight in the begining of where the scroll starts. My reasoning is it gives the look of a store bought mass produced bent by a machine look, rather than a hand forged. I look at every piece of iron work around and soon as I see that I say Store Bought Tack UP Job. I know its easier to start the scroll like that, espescially if your doing them cold, but I clamp them and try and keep them flowing round from beginning to end. For the most part tho, no one even notices, accept the trained eyes. But thats what is killing the market on the ornamental stuff, nobody knows the differance from a pile of $4 china factory scrolls, or the guy who spent 3 days in his garage making each one by hand. Just a suggestion, but GREAT stuff bud cheers!

    Gotta love those old VW,s ;-)


    Thanks for constructive critics WelderMike!
    Will take a look at my jig and try to soften the first edge, and try to make it one continous bend.

    This next railing i did had nothing like scrolls for sure. Finished this one last friday

    About 12 meters in total. Brushed stainless

    This actually is the second railing i do for this customer
    Here is the first one, with glassinserts to keep wind out. Made this one 4-5 years ago

    The owner want to take his kids along when going to sea and wants to be sure that the kids are safe.

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    Its been a while since last post.
    well here,s a few updates for you guys :-)

    Finished off the table i made .


    in place


    earlier this summer i made a "joystickholder" for a boatchair.
    The customer wanted to put a joystick and some switches at the end of the armrests on his boatchair.



    Here i will cut a big hole and the customer will add some black plexiglass around the stick


    The underside with removable covers, for accesss

    Ive made a few of these before, and it works pretty well..
    I deleted the picture of the finished product :-(

    Re: The Norwegians projects

    A buddy passed by with this exhaustpart for his dads boat..
    He had lost his cooling on the exhaust on the boatengine and this part, hwo leads the exh. down and into the sea had melted due to the lack of cooling.





    He asked if i could try to make a new one in stainles, because it was impossible to get a new one..

    I didnt promise anything but to try with the parts i had avaiable
    I had a bend..


    Sliced it open and tried to put some of it back together
    Ended up lik this



    It was hell on earth to assemble th bottom to the top.
    there were no logic in how this would have to look and where to cut.
    A small cut and then try it, then mark up some more and cut, and try..

    The short story.. the customer were happy and i got paid :-D
