    Default New But Not

    hello all, my name is stan darnell. i am new to this site, but not new to melting metal. i weld for the interstate highway sign corporation. mostly aluminum, but i have spent alot of years in the quarries working with high pressure, and structural steel. my hobbies are to take scrap and make something good. my last project was i took scrap aluminum and made arkansas' only aluminum pedestrian bridge, then donated it to a charter school close to the house. i would like to show pics, but i don't know how. maybe someone would tell me how to post a few pics.

    other projects are stuff to see if i could, like a grill from the tank out of a hot water heater, or a gate that weighs 600 pounds and swings on one post, things like that. the hard part is it mostly is scrap metal. no new metal was purchased fo any projects, except for the gate, i had to buy some amazing hinges...lol

    Thumbs up

    Welcome to the board, Stan! Your pictures are awesome! I love your aluminum bridge (I also love it when anybody posts anything that Dave will respond to since we get to see him sitting next to his race car with a hottie!--pay attn to his signature for more information).

    A few questions: what kind of equipment are you using to weld aluminum? What brands, what setups, what wire, etc etc etc?

    If you get a chance, check out JimYo's website at http://www.jimyo.com he's got some amazing stuff!

    Looks like great / fun work.
    How did you balance the big fan blades?
    I like the bridge, looks sturdy.

    Cool bar stool, I would love to make one like that.
    Did you make drawings or just wing it.
