I finally got my grubby mitts on a 60 gallon air compressor tank. Tank is actually in excellent shape but whoever had it cut off the motor and now it's just asking to be used as a smoker.
Let me start by saying I have ABSOLUTELY no experience working with metal. My end result is "hopefully" something along the lines of a Lang 48 patio. So, to the questions.
1. How difficult is it to cut doors and fire box opening using an angle grinder? If I can save money by doing it vs finding someone with a plasma cutter and paying them I'll do it as long as it's not going to mangle the door. Also, I know propane tanks need to be handled with care when cutting into them for obvious reasons, do I need to worry about that with this air compressor tank?
2. Finances are not unlimited unfortunately. So, I basically have 2 options. I can buy all the necessary metal, and then find someone to put it together for me. Or, I can purchase a cheap flux core welder and try to do it myself. Will a flux core be a good tool for this type of project though?
3. I'm in Rochester NY, anyone have some time and welding abilities???? LOL!
