    Silverware farrier and the old doc

    Name:  image.jpg
Views: 1092
Size:  34.3 KBLocal farrier asked if I could do a horseshoer in silverware. He wears leather chaps so I came up with this. The old doc is for neighbor who has his 50 th birthday coming up. I'm not sure about leaving the syringe hanging on his back. The other is one of those big things with horns, a moose, for neighbors little guy.Name:  image.jpg

    did you tack weld the silverware with a mig welder. I use my o/a setup to make some silverware figurines for now because that is all I have, you did a great job they all look great. thank flyfishbill

    Thanks flyfishbill , most of the silverware stuff is mig welded and some is tig. It depends on what I'm making. I'm getting better on hiding all the welds and heat marks on the finish exposure. If you want to see some more, here's some others I did.

    I think the best one you did so far is the boat with the two people fishing on top of the driftwood I am working on making one like your it is a lot harder to work with a o/a setup I am looking for a cheap mig gas welder for about 200.00 to 250.00 to get started. You do good work keep it up

    Thanks again, and Yes, the fishing driftwood ones are a favorite by many. The first was for my son and he has had many wanting to buy it. The right looking driftwood is hard to locate.
    Using a Oxy/act setup is really tough. Please post some pics, I would like to see it. If you have any questions, PM me. Check with your local supplier for a older model 140 that they might have on clearance. That's where and why I bought mine, on sale as closeout.
    I have a Miller 140 with .024 SS wire and a tank of trimix setup and do some with tig using straight argon. I have used basic .024 mig wire and 75/25 too. The smaller diameter wire does a nice job. Let me know if you would like more info. You could PM me.
