    replied to Generator for Shop?
    The outlet next to the panel with a long cord is the cheapest & most easily moved. If you want portable to work away from the shop then buy an engine drive with a feeder. This will double as a generator for the house. Remember with a genset or portable welder you need to have a transfer switch...

    replied to Generator for Shop?
    If it was me I would put an outlet by the panel & then run an extension cord out to the garage. Roll it up when not used. How often will you be using this equipment? If you use it a lot then you can run some lengths of pvc mounted in a corner of the floor/wall or ceiling/wall & run the cord...

  • When you pull the trigger you should hear the gas solenoid "click" & gas should flow. Again these should be audible signs. Is your gun pushed in all the way? If you are not getting gas then it is simple to disconnect each connection to find the problem.

    Rusted wire will...

  • It looks to me that you are trying to keep the puddle centered on the joint? In this instance you should be favoring the lower plate slightly as there is less mass on the top pc. so it will burn in easier there on the edge as opposed to the bottom plate. As you weld you can always roll the puddle...

    Took a photo this morning before I head out of it being used. The trick is the flat bar needs to flexible enough so it can be bent ("adjusted") so the angles are closer together than the edges of the plate you are lifting. This keeps it on the plate until the the hoist supports the weight...

    another If you need more pics let me know. A few won't upload tonight. Just slip the angles on the edge of the plate & the hook from the hoist goes on the flat bar. Simple.

    here are some pics. The small one fits sheets up to 48" wide. 1/8 x 1.25" x 60" long flat bar with a pc. of 1/4 x 2 x 2 x 4" long on each end. The angles were bent to make them over 90 degrees. The bigger one fits wider/longer sheets. It is 1/4 x 1 x 94" that is bent on...

    I use two short pcs. of angle with a pc. of flat bar welded between it. I'll grab a picture so it makes sense. Very cheap & easy to make. I've lifted a little over 1000 pounds with it. My other clamp is just a screw clamp with an eye welded on it. I'll grab a pic of that also.

    replied to Stainless tig work
    These are some kind of wash cart for very expensive equipment. Parts are held on by brackets I guess, then rolled over to a wash bay & cleaned. No purge. Always thinking about warpage. I build/weld the bottom & top shelves first seperately, straighten and square up as needed. They have mitered...

    All fixed. Cut the edge off, got rid of the old scab plates someone put on to "fix" it. Lined up the edge as best I could since it is bowed & twisted. Tacked it in, then cut a peice of plate to fill in the floor, welded it up. Ready to be broken again.
