    Talking Welder Challenge Projects

    Well, I entered the bucket stand and my new MIG cart in the Miller Weekend Welder Challenge. I had a lot of fun making both items, and that's what it's all about for me anyway! That and practical usefulness.
    I didn't win anything, but the bucket stand is now included in the Miller Idea Photo Gallery (mistakenly labeled Plant Stand). So that's cool!
    I borrowed a lot of ideas for the MIG cart from this board. Thanks to all you guys for that!
    Looking forward to my next projects, many of which will be lawn and garden ground-engaging attachments for my new Husqvarna 26HP garden tractor.

    MIG-ateur and Amangii,

    Watch out. Hear there's a Hurricane blowing into town second week of the season. Might surprize some of you out in the "flatlands".

    Thumbs up New MIG Cart Project and Beer Bucket Stand

    I mentioned the cart I built for my new "Red" MIG unit, but I never showed you guys any pictures. Since I got the inspiration from you guys on this board, I thought I should share.

    And I added a couple of pics of the beer bucket stand I entered in the Miller Challenge, showing how it collapses.

    It takes less time and money to do it right than it does to do it over!

    Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

    Talking

    Just marked off a 4" section, tightened the piece in a vice at one mark, and heated and twisted the free section until the twist reached the other mark. Seemed simple at the time but is kind of hard to explain. It worked out well though, don't you think?

    Good job on the first projects. I've twisted flat by just clamping it in a vise and using a large Crescent wrench. It's pretty easy and adds a lot to the looks of an ornamental project.

    Just a quick tip.
    When I use old wheels for tool stands I weld an old rotor in them. Working for a large ambulance company I have easy access to damaged ambulance wheels and worn out rotors. Just set the rotor on a 2X4, set the wheel on it, slice the studs off flush with the wheel and weld the wheel to the stud stubs, kind of like a rosette. This more than doubles the weight and stability of the base.
