    I welded a bra underwire, it is a curved piece of stainless about 1/8" wide and about .030 thick. It was not pretty but it worked.

    I also welded my cell phone belt clip, it was riveted together but they gave out so I welded the stainless and the spring steel together and it is still working.

    I just had one that was worth digging up this thread.

    Today, I welded the bronze statue of an early Supreme Court Justice. I was told that an authentic replica would cost $250,000 but the original was irreplaceable.

    The damage to the monument was likely done by would-be metal thieves trying to scrap it.

    I'll tell you this - I had to work my butt off to fight cracking. And man did I do a lot of peening. But it's done and looks good.

    One of the more "unusual" things I've gotten the call for.

    My strangest would have to be a lampshade and an air horn off a Mack truck . It just seems to me it would have been cheaper to replace them.

    Default Hmmm!

    Hello!

    I'm new to this forum!

    That is a tough question.

    I guess it would have to be a tie between the ss plate of a friend of mine's upper dental partial and a badly leaking crack in 50' aluminum diving boat's hull while it was in the water. The only way to keep the crack dry was to bring the boat up to almost full speed to create a negative pressure outside the hull's crack. There were lots of waves that day!:


    Cheers!
