    Default Girlfriend's Art

    I have been teaching my girlfriend how to weld, cut, and grind over the past 6 months. She has actually gotten good enough at tig welding to the point that I can actually use her for work parts (paying ones)!

    Anyways we slowed down a little so I told her to make something instead of standing around . And this is what she came up with. Go easy on her it's her 1st project! It's all plasma cut free hand and ground/pollished.

    She doesn't know I posted this yet.
    Don't mind the clutter in the background. That is HER syncrowave 250 I picked up for 600.00

    You are a lucky man.

    The only interest my better half has in my welding is what I can make for her.

    You can tell your GF she did a very good job.

    verry cool.
    if she is going to hang it outside it might be a good idea to atach the spinners with a fishing luer spinner so they will spin in the wind, should look realy cool spinning.
    verry cool she likes playing for now but soon she will take over the shop and it will be all arts and crafts.
    good idea to get her her own syncro, might keep her off yours.LOL
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Mike,
    It's too cool that you are helping your girlfriend open up her artistic talents.
    Please remind her when she gets famous and rich, who helped her get there Maybe she'll buy you (or share with you) her new Dynasty 300dx
    Any shows that she can display her stuff at, like I mentioned to fun4now, will get her name out. They may not want to buy what she has right there, but when they or their boss gets ideas, they'll know who they can go to, to make it

    Talking

    She should get her own screen name so she can come and chat with us. Since she's new to welding maybe she should get one on the ask andy site too. That way she can get more welding related advice, that way she can get good enough at welding to do stuff out of exotic metals such as copper, aluminum or SS. Those could allow her to do some REALY neat things, especialy the copper.

    P.S. Great looking art, keep it coming!
