  • Aluminum Chair Repair

    I fixed an Aluminum chair base for a fellow that I work with.
    I typically use a gas lens for TIG welding, but in this case I used a #5 conventional nozzle because the weld area was so tight. The original design had very little weld on the inside. For my repair I generously welded the inside to beef it up. Part of the problem with the original welds were that they were done with MIG and they had some adhesion or cold lap problems.

      Good job.
      I have a steady flow of chairs through my shop, and have had for years. People buy a set and then continually break them. I find very little difference in quality of construction between top dollar ones and cheap ones.

        Nice repair. That joint will hold way better that the original.
