    I reinforced my hood. 1990 GMC fire truck had a bad day, therefore I had several.

    I looked for a replacement, one in Idaho claimed to be perfect. Picture was long distance. All others this hood style are cracked around the hinges. The headlights are too close to the hinges.
    I'm running 1/4 X 3 above the headlights, two wings added to each hinge to spread out the strain. It adds 42 screws to share the load. I've filled all voids surrounding the hinges with Tiger Hair.

    Lots of body work remains.

    Nope, it's a 1967 and going to be a shovelhead with a magneto and SU carburetor.

    Flathead, knucklehead, panhead, shovelhead-slabside refers to the flat cam cover, shovelhead cone motor, evolution, twin cam, Milwaukee 8.
    In that order.

    Sort of stupid question.............but what do you do when the motor falls in your lap. That looks real narrow to carry, and balance, a motor

    My back can’t carry too much any more . The stand base is on the engine center line and is about as wide as any store bought ones I have used. Always clamp them down to the bench before yanking on any wrenches anyway.
    Not a stupid question, but a good point.

    Got my new axles yesterday, got spring pads on them and loosely installed today, tomorrow get it all lined up and final torque on all the fasteners. It may just get a blast and paint job now that we have the weather for blasting. Name:  20210302_122349.jpg

    Not technically welded today, but proved that my bottle rack will hold two bottles securely without tipping. Honestly digging the ratchet straps over chains.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "water rescue", at least in this context.

    Not arguing, but what's the reasoning for the chains in addition to the straps?

    Brackets to support an 86 gallon well pressure tank on my concrete wall. Spent 2.5 hours making them, but will forever have another 4 square feet of floor space in the utility room. 304 stainless. Welded with 309L on a Miller Syncrowave 180.

    I haven't welded anything today, but I've been gone from the forum for quite a while and just wanted to say hi.

    Opus is a water head, just ignore him.

    Chains don't melt. That's why they should be chained.

    Not sure why I didn’t think about that since it makes perfect sense.

    Keeping up with the thread, I welded my lead holder together. I was hoping that doing the tack welds would give a cleaner appearance. It might’ve worked but I think I was the limiting factoring on that.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I haven't followed the whole thread. I'm guessing you are a beginner. I saved my first project as a reminder of how far I've come.

    I grew up hearing little leaked snippets about Heliarc welding. In my youth it was a process only used inside a General Electric plant where they made military jet engine parts. I never knew if the secrecy was because of military, or GE protecting trade secrets. I damned well wanted to know! GE employees smuggled countless aluminum items in to be welded. It always seemed to me GE management tolerated that rather than having technology stolen.

    Many years later, the internet made this information available to everyone. I bought in. Of course, I built my dream project as my first. I should build it again for appearance, but it's functional.

    I’m not sure if this was directed at me, but I’ll answer. I’ma beginner but kinda not. When I first start working in ship repair as a outside machinist, we were expected to be able to do our own tack and stitch welds, and those of us that caught on better and could run good beads could find weekend week with the welders. Sounds ended up welding for 30-60 minutes a day, actual arc time, probably 5 of 7 days in my work week. But this was back in 2012-2013 when I was 18-19 and all we ran was 3/32” and 1/8” 7018. Needless to say, I was a decent stick welder, but I actually didn’t pick up a mig gun for the first time last year in April when I got back from a 3 month work trip and picked up a welder for the garage. Then I spent another 4 and half months out of town between then and Christmas. But I weld every chance I get at home. When my wife goes out with the girls, or my son is down for a nap, I’m always trying to find a reason to weld. Thin or thick plate, sheet metal, scraps, just to try and get better. I want to be as proficient with a mig gun as I was with a stinger.
