    Replacing the top and lower rail on a 10ft gate with 1.25 x 1.25 square tubing after the original had rusted through. Dang'ol horses are rough on gates.

    They are stacking like crazy right now hoping to outrun the rain we may be getting today. Luckily they have 3 machines.

    These are prototypes for some sort of removal tool. Slow going making them from leftover pieces of angle. Hopefully I can source some channel with the correct id or have some made for the next ones. It sure would save a lot of time.

    Can you find a square or rectangular tube section that is close enough and rip it down the length to make 2 "C" sections? Might be another option, but still might require some machining to get the critical dimension right, unless you get lucky (depending how critical it is). Or just get a machine shop to hog it out of solid bar stock...

    I never considered that. I've been searching for c or u channel (as it doesn't have to be a "clean/square" bend. But have been coming up with nothing. Square or rectangular tube may be the answer! If not, it's not all for one order, so I can move sloweelllyy.....

    Those stinger hay stackers are built a few miles from my shop. Family business that is doing very well.
    I drove one of the prototypes when I was in highschool. it was an old schoolbus chassis with a 366 big block adapted to an allison auto. There was no cab whatsoever. All the hay leaves and dirt just fell down on the driver. I still loved driving it, picking up hay and unloading it at the end of the field. Tons of fun for a 16 yr old kid.

    Yup! I preach all the time "Lock out. Tag out"
    A facility I work at often, the 1 below top boss is the problem solver. A machine was plugged. Clearing it, he ripped off the end of a finger. I chided him about "Lock out. Tag out."
    He assures me it was locked out. there must have been "residual electricity".

    Did that to my left ring finger in 2006, was fighting with a line up clamp on 40' joints of 24' pipe. Heavy welding gloves don't have a lot of feel about where your fingers can be. Beveled pipe is sharp stuff. I lost 10mm of fingertip but it left just enough of the nail that it has grown down over the end to protect the bone.

    I still have all limbs, but briefly I had six toes on one foot. Split the big toe down the middle. Visited the Emergency Room a few times, but recovered.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    In my teens (now 77) I ran a (Northwest) diesel shovel. One day, at quitting time, I signaled to the last dump truck of the day that we were finished for the day and that he could leave for his last delivery. Then, after shutting down the diesel, I removed my gloves, laid them on the seat (which was my habit) grabbed the window frame and swung myself down from the cab to land on top of the tracks, but my school ring caught on a sharp corner of the sheet metal, suspending me so my feet could not reach the tracks, nor could I grab the frame, as I hung there by my ring finger.

    The last truck driver actually saw this and returned to help, but the ring deformed into a teardrop shape, finally releasing the sharp metal corner and dropping me to the ground. My finger still bears the scars where it tore the flesh right to the bone. And I learned yet another very good lesson regarding wearing jewelry around machinery. More very good lessons were yet to come.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Now remembering the very first lesson I received running heavy equipment and jewelry.

    Only a couple days on the job (running diesel shovel) a guy came by the jobsite selling watches out of the trunk of his car (this is back in the '50's). I was being paid by the hour and had to be responsible now for being on time and for knowing when it was quitting time. ALL the other construction guys wore pocket watches, which I thought looked pretty old fashioned to my young eyes. So I picked out a very fancy watch with (imitation) jewels around the dial and a fancy band for $10, thinking WTF did these old guys know.

    Near as my memory can figure it was perhaps the very next day that I learned a very good lesson. The massive forged iron lever which pushes and pulls the boom away from and towards the operator is foot operated to "crowd" (away from operator) after which you slide your foot off the integral pedal and the lever then instantly returns towards the operator (with great force) to be caught in your left hand, which then pulls the boom back for the next bucketful. Well, I was a little lazy with my left hand in catching it and the massive knob at the top of this lever caught my brand new watch, literally exploding it into countless pieces.

    My very next purchase was a pocket watch.
