    Default Newbie in Oz

    Hi all have just found this forum and have been enjoying reading your posts. Lots of good info.

    I have recently signed up to night classes to learn welding and love it so far.

    We will be able to make a project towards the end of the course. I am deciding between a cage for my box trailer or saddle racks for my saddles...but then a welding table would be handy

    I have lots of things to fix around the place and then I want to make some stuff. And practise practise practise

    Im probably in the minority here as I think I would be the only girl but dont let that stop me.

    I will see if I can get some photos on here when I have done some tinkering.

    Default Welcome

    Welder was one of the best things I have bought for my shop. Even being in the city I have easily paid for it with just repairs around the house and yard. Not to mention expanding my creativity.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    This is what I made while tinkering around last night.

    My farrier gave me these shoes the other day when I asked if he had any to get rid of. The worst part was cleaning off all the mud and p00. I just used a wire wheel on the grinder.

    Should I hang it on the outside wall or should I use it as a trivet on the table?

    possm. I made a swivel saddle rack that will hold two saddles and it is portable out of EMT. I don't have a pic of it handy though. I also do some horseshoe stuff and here are some samples.

    The last is a gate latch made out of a farriers rasp and a horseshoe.

    Just because you have one, doesn't mean you have to act like one.
