          30 Finalists

          The thread where I posted the image of the 30 finalists is here:
          http://www.millerwelds.com/education...ead.php?t=1570

          Just to torture you a bit more, the voting is now closed and we have winners!

          My co-worker and I had a little bet going on over this project challenge. I picked 6 projects I thought were in the winner's circle, and my co-worker picked 6 (2 per category) and we bet over lunch who's selected projects, when added up, would have highest total vote count. Well...I WON!!!

          Here are our (uneducated) picks: (Our opinion only: NOT THE REAL WINNERS)

          Firewood Dolly
          EZ Load Lawn Dolly
          Motorcycle loader/unloader

          EZ Can Crusher

            Now this is just flat out cruel and unusual punishment. It's not right I tell ya
            I've been trying not to think about it and not get excited, now this. Torture is not the word for it Dave

            P.S. No matter who wins, I had a good time coming up with this project and building it anyways. Win or lose all the finalist were winners anyways. I'm already trying to think up something for next years challenge.

                  Maybe not, Those were their personal picks, not the actual winners. They counted the votes for the projects they picked, their picks may not have been the winning picks of the voters. This by no means excludes you and your project from the actual true vote count, We are all still possible winners at this point. Dave

                    Challenge

                    Yep, you are right. Our picks in no way reflect the real winners... We're a couple of office people who have only been through basic welding classes. The people to impress are the PowerClick subscribers, because their votes actually count and they are more likely to be WELDERS.

                      so dose that mean you don't do any welding at home ?? not even silly little artsy fartsy stuff for around the house ?? like planter holders and stuff. i cant imagine taking a basic welding class and not getting all excited about all the cool stuff you could do with welding at home.
                      thanks for the help

                        Owning a welder

                        I might want to have a welder someday, for like you say, artsy fartsy stuff, but even with an employee discount, it's a signifigant amount of $$$.

                        It is exciting, especially when I look at the idea gallery... Ah well... I think I already have enough various unfinished projects at home anyway!

                        Someday we plan to pick up a TIG as when we're old and retired, the plan is to build an airplane! A person can't live so close to Oshkosh and NOT own one! That should be an interesting project...

                          Airplane huh? COOL! I'll send you some 1x3" plates to practice on!!!
                          When you get those done, you should be good to put your life in thour hands

                            if you are planing to build an air plane.......you might want to get started practicing soon.
                            just gotta put a little in a welding fund jar whenever you can, took me a little over 3 years for my TIG.:
