Re: OT/ new welder arrived today!! ready to weld!!
Any welder will tell you, the only way to learn is to jump right in!
Weld on anything and everything!
(You will be VERY good friends with the angle grinder in no time!)
I started with some cheap angle iron and made some roll around parts tables with shelves to start with.
I really need the storage space, and I just couldn't see paying the welders $18 an hour to stand by the saw for angle iron for my storage tables...
Besides, I got exactly what I wanted, the way I wanted it.
My next project was a work bench, and that turned out pretty well. (three of the legs hit the floor at once...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img])
Then I made a press frame using a hydraulic jack.
Needed a little press. I don't do big jobs at home, so a table top press is fine.
By the time you do that kind of stuff, you will be able to draw a bead with the best of them!
(Not really, but it sounded good, didn't it?)
So many cats, so few recipes...
