    I know, right? One orchard over here had a manifold with 8-10 tees glued together with short pieces between them, it had blown out 4 or 5 times and the managent called me. Went in and built a welded steel manifold with flanged connections to the outlet valves and steel down to the mainline. Six years later it's still going good. After the outlet valves... maybe not so well.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Got the gantry frame done today. Still need to get started on the wheels. I am going to make casters using 15" trailer tires so it can be used in the shop and out on the lot. Our lot is crushed rock so normal casters won't work.

    Started making different aircraft weathervanes. Made from 12 gauge steel, 1”pipe for the base, 1/2” cold rolled for the axle and supporting the axle with a sealed bearing at each end. Welding them up with 1/16” ER70. Last photo is my practice soccer ball with 32 sides.

    I tried doing this with old cars but they never caught on. My wife wants me to do a rooster, pig and cow as she says our rural location would support it. Just hard to draw something I don’t have a lot of passion about.

    I had to do something like this on our house. The main carrying beam had cracked, and we had to go down in the crawl space, build a temp stud wall to hold the house up, then cut the beam out, and replace it. It looks like you did a very workmanlike job.

    Moving everything in through the hatch. We broke the beam up in 3 pieces for the new install. Only way to do it.

    I visited the Mooney factory in ‘94. The vertical stab (tail) looks like that because they used the same jigs for both the vertical and horizontals to save $$. Fast aircraft for a single engine piston but very small on the inside.

    A simple experiment with steel 3/4 nuts. Getting more comfortable with tig slowly.

    I picked up a bucket of those nuts from a scrap yard. Figuring what else is worth making.

    Cool!!!! Yeah I know they're small on the inside and slippery when you're coming in too high but still like em' never got to fly in one but always wanted one... still do but I think my list of wants is just too big now to make happen in less than a couple hundred years

    Mrs. B was first a second grade teacher. One day I passed on the road a second grader. I offered him a ride knowing he had missed the bus. Before me, there were three generations our families had been friends. He didn't see well, his glasses were frighteningly scratched. He'd seen me dozens of times, but didn't recognize me. "Do you know my father?" he asked.

    Yeah, I've known him all my life. I am your teacher's husband. He relaxed. I took him to school.

    Years later in the Junior Instructional Ski Program, he was transporting his younger brothers. I was chauffeuring other students. Four hours a day, we could ski. He demonstrated himself as a great skier! I knew he could barely see, I couldn't figure it out! I skied well when the sun was high in the sky, at sundown, the contrast of terrain was lost! How was he doing it?

    Ben skies by the seat of his pants. He doesn't use his eyes except to miss trees. His feet tell him about terrain.

    You might get burned fingers, but you don't need eyes to weld.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    A lot of truth in that I have to 'braile weld' sometimes... and usually the bead looks great... now if I could just keep the bead on the joint it would be perfect


    Kinda had the same problem on a sled trying to keep up with other guys wearing better 'eye equipment' 'braile sledding' didn't work out so good for me at missing trees didn't hurt the sled much but flipped me off it doing 20mph!!! head over heels!!!
