    Yeah, it's had a hard life and they really don't do much in the way of maintenance until something breaks or quits running

    When he said he broke the 3point I figured he meant a lower arm or something like that... since all the other stuff has swivels and pivots... I have no idea how they did it.. but someone else had goobered a bunch of rod in it- took me 10 minutes of grinding before I got down to clean metal

    Nice work on the aluminum. Usually when I mig something that long , it starts getting too hot. Makes it hard to keep the bead even, it starts to get wider and flatter.

    Did you do that in one pass ?

    Thank you and thanks you capt B!

    I pulse the backside first then run a single pass on the front side and I do like the whip method. I was jumping too far ahead here. I’m making another one tomorrow.

    Some pics from awhile back, replacing some swather header pans. Used 10 ga 304 stainless steel to keep the green stuff from sticking and building up. Name:  20200311_145521.jpg

    They were done for me on a press brake, the guy that did them is a patient artist. He guaranteed if they wouldn't fit, he'd do them over.

    That extra length on the oblong hole template must make for easier layout.

    Yup. the panel is 36" wide and the inner slot is 13.5" from the edge. I made the jig and then realized I had no way to clamp it down. I'm really liking the jigs and a drag tip on the Hypertherm. Got all kinds of them now for putting light holes in semi trailer builds. Working on a few more for common pipe cuts for irrigation fitting.

    I keep all my jigs. Most I don’t even remember what I made them for.

    This one I made a couple weeks ago for welding gas bottle racks.

    Was that at NW Steel & Pipe? .85/lb. rem price?

    No, this is at interwest.. not sure on the current price for rems at NW was 85 a while back but they do have to pay for the new building and plasma's and laser...etc...

    NW got a bit picky on people getting rems too... as long as you know the guys back there it's ok... otherwise not so much...

    Made up a few more custom fence/securement pieces today after work.

    Still have some lincoln .035 fluxcore in the m211 most of this was at 110v since I was too lazy to run the big cord and had a 100foot of 12gauge extension laying there

    Were you planning on using the hydrogen off gassing /explosion for preheat since you were only using 110v?

    Yep, 12v71 turned me on to that trick with the batts!!! I think the 12 volt batts work the best even though I have some 6's there... they are just to 'up' the current

    3/32 7018 at around 105amps. That's smokin' for such a little rod, but needed the heat in a hurry for such small welds.

    The main thing I was pleased with, was flowing the metal so it wouldn't overlap, or mess up, the machined surface Sometimes life treats ya right

    Some copper splitters for a project. We need to run 600' of water line. I will run 1" poly but there is. a road we need to cross so i wanted to run rubber hose but did not want to restrict flow and did not want to buy an expensive 1" rubber hose, soooo, i made a parallel system for 2 garden hoses.

    I'm not crazy about plug welds either. I always feel they're not as strong as need be.

    The one in the pic is a "lock" weld. The pin is press fit, and the two spot welds are to lock it in place. Be literally tons of force on that pin when in use. It was a real debate as to how deep to make the countersink. Enough shoulder to keep the weld out of the machined surface, and enough shoulder to allow for some serious heat for penetration. I kill way too much time thinking about this kinda crap.

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    Finally finished my first project as a beginner welder - a welding table. Completed using Miller Multimatic 220, all mig using .035 wire and plugged into a 240 circuit.
    Posting here so others might leverage my final design. I searched everywhere for ideas and settled on a smaller table, but with 4 “hitch style” inserts to attach vises, grinder, chop saw and belt sander. Also modified my existing wood work bench to accommodate the hitch adapter, so I can move my tools between benches. Created an adapter so a tool can be raised or lowered, or even centered over the welding table depending on need (See picture of larger vise in different configurations). Now on to building a smaller plasma table that will slide in just under the welding table, hanging on rails but also having it’s own casters for when that table is used.Name:  IMG_2508.jpg
