    I havent tried that before. Ill give it shot next time. Im sure it wont be long lol

    Made this little get up today. Its a drag apparently.




    I had this 37 chunk of .71 wall 4.5 pipe

    We cut a 10 drop off and added a couple tabs for them to hook up to a chain.

    He originally wanted a railroad rail but at 32.5 lbs/ft this seemed to fit the Bill.

    Made some more redneck cookware. Actually, I have been watching this guy's videos on Youtube:

    https://www.townsends.us/

    He has a series on 18th century cooking, using period recipes and cookware, often over an open fire. He sells most of the implements on his web site, but since I can weld (sort of) I said to myself "Hey, I bet I could make something like that myself!" So with only a thousand dollars or so in tools and materials I saved myself a couple hundred bucks.

    Truth be told, I wanted an excuse to buy one of those cheepo Harbor Freight ring rollers.

    https://www.harborfreight.com/gear-d...ler-36790.html

    As has been noted here before, that tool leave knurling marks on the workpiece, so when I made the frying pan side I had to grind off the marks. Now I have grinding marks. What the hell, it's a frying pan.

    Sanitary Stainless steel fitting with .080" wall thickness welded into a 22ga polished stainless hopper for new single serve hot chocolate drink powder. Used 3/32" gold tungsten with 1/16 " 312 filler.

    My holesaw was about .030" oversize to begin with (19mm) which made filling the gap a little bit of a challenge.

    I don't think 312 is rated as a food grade stainless.

    Did you purge the inside?

    No, I didn't , used some aluminum backers. It is a bit of a rush job, and the other argon tank was three buildings away. I should probably buy a dual output regulator/Flowmeter. Weldmonger has one that seems reasonably priced.

    The fitting is 304, and the hopper is unknown, but probably 304 as are most of the dry food ingredients machinery my company has purchased. E308 would have been the correct filler wire to use.
    I couldn't find any 308 in the shop where I was working other than the 5/32" stick welding rod. 312 is a High Ferrite wire, and in situations with high temp, and or corrosive liquids there is the possibility of rusting. Its been passivated, and monday will go for cleaning, and sanitizing. Its an alkali cleaner followed by an acidic sanitizer Peroxiacetic Acid (dilute). Its a mixture of Vinegar, and Hydrogen Peroxide. If we don't show rust there we'll be good to go. I have used 312 before in pinch, and usually on the cracks in the tanks that have fittings sticking out from thin wall container, and or have shakers. There are no materials that are not food grade like lead cadmium, or arsenic, in the msds. just less corrosion resistance. The main uses for 312 listed are for castings, and armor plate, where post weld cracking is a problem.

    Monday I'll order some 308 tig wire, and some argon.
