    Default welding chair

    has anyone ever made a welding chair out of an automotive bucket seat ?
    i got the idea the other day, when, after welding for 10 hours and my back hurting, how much better i felt when i hopped in my truck for the ride home.
    seems like it would be real comfortable when setting for 10 hours a day.
    if anyone has made one, please post pics, because i think i am gonna make me one soon.
    thanks

    Sorry I don't have any pics. I used to weld in a fab shop and we had crappy chairs. We all talked to the man and he ok us to make a chair. We had a pallete full of chair parts. I made a chair that way better than my old one. Saved my butt for sure!

    I gotta see what you make out of a truck seat. You should put a handle on the side so you can swing out the legs on break!

    been working on it a little each night when i can, when not working on my old truck, 1957 chevy.
    got the frame made that will bolt to the bottom of the seat and have it hinged so i can rock back some, like any office chair, and got the swivel mounted also, (a cut down old caster wheel).
    i still have to make the bottom with wheels, an adjustable vetical shaft and the adjustable arm rests.

    Something I saw at a junkyard near my old house may interest you. The junkyard guys had taken a tire and rim, filled with cement, and attached a Cadillac spindle to it. On top of the post was one of the "captain's chairs" from either an RV or a van, and the footrest was a steering wheel. Because the seat was mounted on the spindle, it turned very easily. (Sorry, I don't have pictures - that particular junkyard is now 900 miles away from where I call home ... )
