    Certiflat Rotary Welding Positioner

    Got it working - finally.







    I know there are more than one of these write-ups out there, but hey... finally got this project finished. Or not.

    Picked up the motor and voltage controller on Ebay. Have had the power supply since forever.

    Next... try using it.

    Very neat! I didn't even know they were offering one.

    This is my second attempt using the rotary table (the first one was a hot mess):



    I adjusted the speed visually so that it was turning about 1 second per dab. Had it turning while starting the arc. Made 5 passes or so.

    Am not sure why I'm getting the pepper at the edges of the weld. Am using a Furick #8 glass cup @ 20 cfh. 3/32 rod. 2% lanthanated tungsten. 30% balance.

    I like it - did you buy it from Eastwood or other?

    Thank you. Yes - Eastwood - unassembled. They had a better price than Weldtables.com who manufactures and ships it.
    It's meant to be used with a cordless drill, but adjusting the speed with one is cumbersome at best. There's a few Youtube vids on adapting a wheelchair motor which is what I went by. I have a SSC Controls on/off foot switch that I'll be using from now on.

    Well... wire brushing removes the "pepper". Guessing it was the ac cleaning at the edge of the weld.
