    Default Looking for new projects

    Hi everyone -
    It's great to be part of the message board from the start. I'm new to welding and looking forward to starting on some easier MIG projects. Any suggestions on what to start with or examples of projects you have done?

    Most wine racks I've seen are made of wood. If using metal, any spot that touches a bottle should be covered with wood or plastic to prevent scratching or breaking the glass.

    I did a search on Google and found quite a few plans for woodworkers. It should be easy enough to adapt some of those designs for metal.

    How about some storage racks and shelves for your welding supplies? A welding table is always useful.

    This is excellent... I was hoping to find some sort of message board to post up ideas and possibly ask really stupid questions.

    I'm learning to weld at the local Junior College. I'm learning OxyFuel Welding right now but hope to move on to tig before the end of the semester. I've been a machinist for several years and wanted to learn to weld so I can broaden my career and make parts for people on the side.

    BTW!!! Anyone with a mig/tig welder collecting dust, send it my way so I can put it to good use. hehehe

    A simple project for the beginner weldor is a "weldors finger". It's a hold-down device for small details when you're doing bench work.



    Here is a drawing:

    Here's another for the home hobbyist....sooner or later you will have to cut something with a plasma cutter or oxy-acetylene torch....this is a way to keep from setting the garage on fire...a cutting grate that consists of a grate over a pan of water. The bars are removable so that when they get eaten up you just change 'em.

    For a little more advanced folks, you will want to build welder cart. Here's one I built
