          Where in the heck did you find those old dusters? Any idea what year and place those might have been taken?

            Interesting old pics. I'd guess mid to late 40s based on the truck.

              These were taken on the Big Inch line. 1942-43 somewhere in Pennsyvania. My Father in law worked on this project. He died around 20 years ago. His wife is in a nursing home and we were cleaning out some of her stuff and found them.

                old welding pics

                Hi Finney

                Nice old pics it's interseting to me when people come across old photos like you have and always try to figure out yr,type of work,machines they used then.

                If you have any more or come across some be sure and post them (PLEASE FOR THE NEW KIDS INVOLVED IN THE TRADE) so we they understand they welded back then too LOL.

                  quote from picture

                  " ****it, my auto dark hood failed again. I guess i'll have to use this old thing." I wonder how it was welding real steel as oppose to this recycled crap we call steel now. sweet pictures man, thanks for sharing. Pat

                    Nice pictures, Finney.
                    It's good to get a chance to see how it was.

                      It sure is sweet if you get a hold of some old USA made steel. Cuts and welds so nice.
