  • A couple of old projects, Pics.

    Just though I would post (finally) a couple of projects that I built last year in grade 11 metal work. The first one is a bike rack, which sucsesfully replaced the classic lean it against a post and hope it stays storage method. It is constructed out of 1*1*1/8 square tubing and welded mainly with 3/32 7018. I started it using the lincoln power mig 255 but coudn't get more than one bead in a row that didn't look like swiss cheese. (If it ain't blue, don't bother )

      Try not to laugh...

      2nd project in grade 11, no lie, was a shoe wrack. But not just any shoe wrack, one that could survive the appocalypse and a sumo wrestler sitting on it. To achieve this I constructed it out of 1*1*1/8 square tubing and 1*1/8 flatbar. Since I was trying to make up for the abortion that was my previous attempt (now resting happily in the Baily landfill ) I decided to go all out and Tig er up. At this point I had mabye 2-3 hours on the Tig machine, and self taught. Red Precision tig 175 with 3/32 2% thoriated tungsten.

        And finally a few more close ups.

        By the way, if anybody is interested in (rudimentary) plans, I thinks I still have them and wouldn't mind giving you a copy.

          Nice projects SR and nicewelds on the shoe rack,but Im wondering though... Do you think that the shoe rack is strong enough to support the weight of all the shoes it could hold??
          Will it weld? I loooove electricity!

            Shorerider16,

            I'm with Signwave, projects look good. You have experience with SMAW, GMAW & GTAW. The GTAW closeups show a lot of promise for that short of a period on the machine. You appear to have a very good hand-eye co-ordination. A little more helmet time and attention to detail will make a world of difference. For the record, I wouldn't mind telling anyone those were MY welds, so good for you.

            As for the GMAW issue with the PowerMig 255 - give me half an hour with you, I'll give you some setting on that machine that run like butter.

            If it ain't BLUE, don't bother.... Nahhhhh..... If it isn't RED & BLACK, It has to go BACK!!!!!

            Later,
            Jason

                Thanks guys! I'll try and get some pictures of some of my weld samples from my c-level course, but since I don't have a digi cam it may take a while.

                Dustyhaze75: If I remember corectly ( ) the shoe rack cost about $70 in material, time on the other hand....

                    Love seeing the young'ns welding up a storm.

                    I see welding as a key to independence. If you can weld then you can make what ever you can imagine up.

                    I've imagined up a lot.

                          I really like the shoe rack

                          I really like the shoe rack. I've been thinking of building one since my wife has so many shoes. Would love the plans if you still have them. Keep up the good work.

                            Good job

                            I think it's great that a student has the talent and interest to take on these kind of projects! Planning and welding looks good.

                              Would love to get the plans you made for the shoe rack and bike rack (if you have them...)

                              About the shoe rack.... Would you have done anything differently regarding that rack ? Say, maybe putting the shoe holding sufaces on a bit of an incline or anything like that or anything else ?

                              Cheers,

                              /J.......
