    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Finally had an actual welding project show up at the shop today.
    Installing a hitch on a huge disc harrow so they can pull their choice of implements behind it. I also get to run hydraulic lines from the hitch to the front. Name:  20210503_140314.jpg

    Rats... got the structural stuff done today and had a truck come in for a laptop hookup and forgot to take pics. I'll get some tomorrow, got a big box of hydraulic parts to finish the whole job anyways.

    The thing I see most, is how people add plate like that, but only weld the perimeter. They don't realize that plate flexes, and the middle needs a weld to develop full strength. Nice to see it done right.

    UPS finally got here today around noon with my hydraulic components, grrr. Got it all mounted up and measured out for hoses, should have a bundle of hoses in the morning and it's off to the races. 38 feet of disc ought to be a good test for a 500 hp John Deere track tractor.

    I never thought to measure that. I would estimate right at 14 feet.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Got this one first thing this morning, kind of ugly. Really rusty thin wall pipe with a split that was probably caused by a line of rust pits.

    Cut a patch from some 10 gauge pipe and shape it to fit, after brushing the heck out of the pipe. First pass looks pretty cobby but the objective is to float the rust out of the base and NOT BURN THROUGH.

    By the second pass there's a bit more mass to burn in a good weld without the chance of burn through.Name:  20210511_071824.jpg

    On the 3rd pass you can get brave and carry some more weld down to the pipe.

    Nice repair, but I think you're fighting a losing battle on that one.

    I hear you, been doing these repairs for years. That field has young spuds that need all the water they can get for another 30 days and that patch job may last out the season until September. These guys have replaced nearly 10 miles of old steel with high pressure PVC, what they have here is about 100' of the old steel that has the tie in to the circle pivot. Once the spuds get well established they will have a 3-4 day window to replace that section with 1/4" wall epoxy coated pipe. They have been replacing 4-5 of those sections every winter.
    Oh, the above repair was done with 1/8" 6011C at 72-74 amps off my Trailblazer 302.

    Been in a structural steel class for work. Eventually I'll take my 3&4g test to get certified, would like to get pipe to, but way things are looking won't get there. Lol. Bit rusty to say the least.

    I've been helping a friend make a cage for the pigs he'll be getting soon. He wants to be able to lift it with the forks on his tractor, or tow it around on skids. He will be adding some plywood for the floor, and sheet metal for the roofing.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Again, it's trivial, but I'm learning to build my own miniature scaffolding. I found some small rails that will allow me to gain access to finish the cement work I still need to do overhead. Construction
    As I'm just learning to weld and do metal work.... in trying to make the first pole for the scaffolding, I did this:

    So, I fixed the broken vice with this:

    and with this vice, i was able to make the support poles and the locks to attach them.

    Once I get the floor finished and the cement sets, I have a floor mount I'll be able to put the vice on, because my first project will be a simple welding table, using the 4"x4" leg RCA building table frame, until I'm able to get (build) a proper welding table. I'm thinking 3'x7' with the holes for clamps. not sure how thick, though. It might see a lot of heavy work.

    Some things are cheaper tu buy than to build. Plus, you will be confident the thing is not going to collapse when you are working on it way above the ground. I bet you can find used scafolding for sale somewhere close...

    Big Oops, one is a 1" and the other is an 1 1/2". Got them cut off and still have to prep and fab the replacements. More to follow.
