  • Whats the most usual thing that you have fixed?

              I assume that you mean "fixed by welding" or just any repair.

                  I meant unusual and for some reason I clicked on the wrong word using spell check. I mean whats the most unusual thing that you have welded or fixed? Sorry for the confusion

                    Probably the strangest thing I have welded and it held was .........two of the four spider gears in the rear end of a 87 Dodge had some broken teeth. I built them up with mig and shaped with a grinder and reassembled. Worked fine. After I located new gears I replaced with new.

                      I fixed a tool that a rancher friend of mine uses. It is made to put rubber bands on Bulls for castration. Yes, I did wash it before, I touched it.

                      Wierd enough?

                      Peace,

                        Well, here's one I did not do. A friend of mine wanted to know if I could weld a buckle on his wife's handbag. Turned out it was a "Coach", (they're like $500), and I suggested he either take it back where they bought it (I believe a lifetime gaurantee), or a jeweler. Still trying to figure out where to attach a 500 amp ground clamp to a hand bag!

                          I welded the head back on a cast iron duck.....from that point on out it had a silver necklace on.....welded the cast aluminum grabbing teeth back on an echo chainsaw for my dad.....used tig on that and had to take the whole thing apart. Welded up some swinging rifle targets for the local pd also. Dave

                            Those are called "docking pliers". Always makes me cringe just thinking them.

                              welding other materials than metal.

                              I plastic welded my aunts little brackets that hold the grille on to the front of her car. Plastic welding sucks.
                              My last job I did alot of wax welding for the investment casting process.(that also sucked dingle berries.)
