    I was wondering how you back gassed the upright to the base?

    I am very new to this.
    Thanks in advance.

      I didn't. It's a table, not a spaceship.


      Hey Fendermender, not to be curt, but I wasn't worried about any carbon precipitation on the inside of my table base. Wear the shoe that fits, right?

      Had I felt it necessary, I would have probably drilled a hole on one of the ends (probably through the flatbar on the top) and back-gassed accordingly.

      Thanks for looking.

        O.K.
        I understand.
        I need to build a S.S. shroud for a motorized machine so I will keep that in mind.
        It is a grape crusher destemmer.
        It was hand crank but I put a motor on it and I think it needs a shroud around the belt pullies and sprocket and chains.

          Solar flux paste

          Fendermender, that sounds like a cool project.
          If you think you might have some issues with burn through and/or you are concerned with the backside of the welds, I recommend that you try Solar Flux paste. This would probably be an easier alternative than back-purging for your application.
          Given my understanding of your application, however, I probably wouldn't sweat it and just zip 'er up; but I'm not fully aware of your criteria.

          Good luck... and post pics. I'm sure there's a bunch of us who would love to see pics of a stainless steel covert/housing for a grape crusher/destemmer.

            Thanks.
            I ordered a can of "Solar Flux" today from the local Praxair and bought a small bottle of the Methanol to mix with it.

            Anxious to give it a try.
