    It looks like powdercoating. Great Choice of colors too.
    I'm jealous of your stock. Not much available by me at all. There's a guy not too far that has 125's for $50 each. Nothing cheap though.

    Just rattle can spray paint. I don't have the space for a powder coating set up.

    If I make one it needs to be 4x4x5 or so. Plus a spray booth of about the same size.

    I don't have the real estate in my shop and I am not about to sell my lathe to make space.

    About twice a year I seriously consider making a small booth in a corner.

    I am fortunate to have the space. Just have to rearrange a few things

    I have most of it figured out but then it just looks like too much work.

    A quick ugly fix at work.

    This cross member for a shelf is about 3/8" too short and it looks like they ran out of gas while MIG welding.

    The whole thing is made from 1/16" material.

    Cut apart and put a small piece in as a bridge. Ugly tig weld and some paint.

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    I bought this 16" length of machined rail last week for $10 Cdn. I assume it was I-beam originally.



    Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but it was just too nice too pass up. So today I chopped it in half ....







    and it will be used as a pair of parallels for the welding table. (Or whatever else comes up)

    Looks almost like a piece of railroad track that has been machined on top and along the sides.
    Nice job to whoever did it.
    Wide stance parallels that can support a good amount of weight and look good while doing it. Nice idea

    Re: Scrap metal art or projects

    I use a few pieces of i-beam like that (some modified to make "goose neck" type finger dies) as a metal creasing or forming dolly.

    i have the tops ground to varying thicknesses and in different lengths. Use them pretty often, and with practice and care the results can be surprisingly clean, even for "bead rolling" type creases. (a mallet or soft face hammer can be useful for moving thinner metal without denting it up, nylon, rubber, wood, etc).

    Just be sure to clamp them well or you'll spend 80% of your time catching jumping metal pieces and putting the puzzle back together for another hammer strike.

    Too late to edit.

    I was incorrect. I paid $5cdn for the 16 length.

    My tenant Luke was cleaning up his shop and offered me these before he threw them in the scrap bin.

    Disinfectant bottle holders left over from a grocery chain install...



    and two bags of cable clamps.

    Good score. The first thing the holders need is a paint job.

    You would have made a good salesperson working for me.

    Some days it ain't easy being green...

    When my two boys were teenagers we went through a rash of flipped vehicles. I was going to get dash plaques that said, "Shiny Side Up".

    I knew a guy with a Jeep, on his spare tire cover it said "No problem" at the top, at the bottom (upside down) it said "Big problem" I used to have a pic of the Jeep upside down when he slipped on ice.

    "I'm OKAY" upside down would be funny too

    fire pit made from an old semi rim, and a steel plate plasma cut and rolled into a fire ring,
    welded to the rim.

    It may have been a mistake to forge this machete out of expensive high carbon stainless steel to give it high edge retention as well as high corrosion resistance; because not many people would use it for its intended purpose, for hunting, and survival; rather, they would use it for decoration, with its polished stainless blade, bright brass hilt, and decorative brass dragon pommel.

    The fire pit looks good.

    I would bet that 90% of people that buy large knives like that do not use them for their intended purposes.

    There is nothing wrong with that at all. Just consider it to be similar to a piece of art or sculpture.

    I used the chopped off 5/8" NC bolt remnant from my welding clamp mod last week....


    and screwed it into a 5/8"NC coupling nut ( avec Loctite)
