    The copper pipe structure for some reason starts to remind me of a Tie chi pose.

    How is this for a pose

    I watched both of his gen two builds yesterday. Maybe one of these days I’ll build one. Jeremy will probably be on gen 5 by the time I get a round two it.

    That looks like aluminum plate... I was trying to bend 1/8 steel and the front end of the tractor wasn't heavy enough...

    Yes, that is aluminum diamond plate or tread plate. That piece is 7 feet long.
    I don't think there is any way I would have been able to bend 7 feet of 1/8" steel diamond plate using that technique.

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    Several clocks from motorcycle parts completed today.
    I received these sprockets several years ago from another welding web member named The BFA. He has not posted in several years. If by chance he stops in, I owe him many thanks.

    I ordered the clock movemments from Amazon.

    The shaft for the movement comes in different lengths. There are the 20mm length that work if you do not use chain on the sides. If you do, you need the 31 mm length shafts.

    Nope, you wouldn't have done it... I was bending 8 ft of steel and the 90 hp tractor wasn't heavy enough.

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    Its time to rearrange the shop.
    I sold my stomp shear and corner notcher to give me some space.
    I ordered a 4x8 plasma table from Arclight Dynamics and it should be here in the next week or two.
    I had to cut down my platform on my lift to give me a couple more feet on the inside so I don't hit my head. The table will go against the back wall on the right.

    I have a neighbor that does all of my woodworking projects,, I do his welding.
    anyways, he had a 3/4 ton Chevy truck, with steel wheels, and hubcaps,, that he was VERY proud of,,

    I happened to find the exact replacement hubcap for his truck at a flea market one day,,
    I ordered one of those clocks, and made the hubcap into a clock for him.

    He literally had tears in his eyes when he saw the clock.
    The truck is long gone, the clock is still in his living room,,,

    Doing things for people that don't expect it seems to have the most impact. With no prior indication you walk in and place it on the table, I did this for you. A simple way to say thanks.
    I did these for my brothers and dentist the last was for me

    I remember a thread you made a while ago showing the different layers you cut for the caveman.
    I will nees to remember that to add depth and distinction for my future work.
