    Default Golf award

    I recently got a phone call from my local welding distributor asking if I could make up a metal award for the local golf club recognizing those members who made a hole in one for 2010.

    Got the details from him and came up with this.

    Measures 12" x 18" and is 1/8" stainless steel.

    The plate warped a bit after tigging so I will send it to a local metal fabricator to have it straightened. After I get it back, I will polish it and drill mounting holes in the corners.

    A bit nerve-wracking as there was no room for error.

    To me, this job was harder than my usual projects as I had to make the beads look nice as well as follow the letters.

    Plus, I couldn't grind out the bad welds and do them over.

    I made some some mistakes, but all in all, I was pleased on how it turned out.
    I flipped the photo of the back of the plate to better show the pattern.

    First time I tried the pulse function on my Dynasty 350.

    Dynasty 350 settings were:
    40 amps DC- 150 PPS - peak 75%, background 25%.
    1/16" 2% thorium. .035" 316 ss wire.

    My way of thanking my local distributor.

    Oh yes, he was one of those who made the list.

    I didn't get any build time on the "Z" again this weekend, but my son & I did get a bottle tray fabricated for his Camaro.





    He's got to glue the rubber bumper in the bottom for the bottle to rest against, Mount the bottle heater to the tray & then give it a quick polish before final installation.

    Default A simple, quick project...

    This is a very simple and quick "project" that I threw together one afternoon.

    I inherited my late father's toolbox and I always try to use some of his tools in any project I undertake; whether it be a wrench, a hammer or a file. If I'm building something for myself, I always try to incorporate a bolt, nut, cotter pin or a washer into the build. On this afternoon, I was looking to build a quick cigar holder and I found a thin, flat washer and a small piece of round stock. I brushed them off with a wire brush, bent the rod to a V shape, tacked them together and sprayed it with a hammered finish. The end result works perfectly with any ring gauge cigar that I happen to be smoking! I can always sit back and reflect on the all the good times I shared with my Dad!

    I'll get around to posting some bigger stuff later...

    we are two guys.
    it took 1 day to cut and prepare the pieces, 1 day to a assemble the stairs and 1 day for the railings. its actually 2 stairs of 5 feet wide to ease transportation. you would be surprised what we can do in one day.
    this was the end result once it was installed.
