    Key ring

    I needed a key ring for my knife. I used 1/8 mild steel welding rod and bent it in a small circle. I welded it with a Lincoln 140 MIG welder using the lowest wire feed and lowest voltage. I could only tack weld it on several sides. I ground it smooth and this is the result. It holds well enough for a key ring. Any suggestions on a better technique?

    You don't make coat hangers, you weld with them.

    Now that you mention it, I made this for an interior decorator years ago to display an antique dress on. They wanted one with just a touch of class.
