    Could you please post a link to the video where you welded the copper with romex. I looked on your website and youtube channel, but did not find this. I am eager to see how this was done!

    Thanks!

    I think running beads on carbon steel using electrical wire for filler rod has some artsy/craftsy potential. Lettering or other design elements put on with it should stand out due to the color difference.

    Nice looking art to both of you moto and Kevin. HT2 that’s pretty cool how you used electrical copper wire on steel to get coloring effects.

    Thank you, Kevin. Very informative.

    Do you have any videos showing welding the copper tubing with romex?

    if you polish the copper and make it shine that would be excellent looking for names on steel to personalize a gift!!!!

    Hob,

    I've got them on my hoods mainly to keep the UV light from burning my neck but they also help keep hot sparks from going down the shirt front.

    Thanks I'm going to build one out of round tubing next and leave about the same gap between the tubes, maybe just little more

    Re: Trefoil made from stainless

    Very nice. You've put an idea in my head now.
    I think I will make one out of stainless round tube. We use that a lot at my work place, so plenty of scrap.
