    A week or so ago I was wondering how often folks find themselves welding by "ear." I had to do a short weld the other day that I could not reach with my gun. I found a small hole, about the size of the square for a half inch carriage bolt, that I was able to stick a 6011 (first time ever using that too, will probably use it more often now) through. I was able to pivot on the flux and do a short run, clean the weld, then repeat. The welds turned out great, just not exactly where I wanted them to be.

    Making a picture frame out of redwood. Going to remake the stainless part. Probably use a thicker piece also so it won’t discolor muchName:  F4956D07-BC4F-4595-9345-05B447611BB6.jpg

    Did a bit of fence welding today... they don't need perfection - just something that looks good from a hundred feet and 15 mph

    Nice. I like the way the mini HF roller is clamped to the table, too.

    Had the miller 211 out for 5 minutes today - busted railing support... whoever 'welded' it up before had about a quarter inch of something on it surprised it lasted as long as it did

    That's what I could call repurposing for sure...

    Pic of a trailer we redecked last week. The hay haulers like plywood decks, so we run the flat bar strips down the length of the trailer to keep from having to cut each sheet of plywood to an exact width. Name:  20201027_114941.jpg

    That's exactly what I would do (if I thought of it by my tenth trailer.)

    We screw as much as we can through the cross members but the flat bar supports the joints in between. Most trailers get 3/4" (or 21/32") plywood to stay on the lighter side. Being a distributed load it works just fine until a loader guy sticks a fork through it...

    Yeah like that never happens. I've seen forklift guys poke through/under aluminum reefer floors.

    Mostly with a squeeze clamp. Some with a fork spear with grapples. I have some pics buried somewhere.

    Does that squeeze head place a full deck width eight foot stack or just four foot deep?

    And do guys in your area have those tricked out highway speed forklifts like they do in California?

    That one is mounted on a Case 721 loader and will handle six 3'x4'x8' bales at a time, either cross ways or length wise on the trailer. the spear only gets 3. The truckers around here like to load the big bales crosswise and strap them like the old small bale loads from front to rear.

    There are a couple of guys loading around here with the "roadrunner" lifts, but they don't do well in the sandy stuff. So regular front end loaders and telehandlers are the kings.

    A good operator on an articulated wheel loader would be able to "kick" those bales in tight.

    My dad used to paint rolling stock for the MBTA in Boston. He said if you can spot a flaw in the job at 40' going 30 mph we will certainly repaint it
