Just excellent welding!

Just excellent welding!

I assume at some point in your life there Uncle, you have been paid to weld?

Do you work with your hands for a living? You should!!

Can't wait to see more. What you gonna do for hinges? 90 degree bent rod in pipe or straight rod in pipe?


PS--what are you using for a welder?

smok'n steve, thanks alot.as far as using my hands. im a diesel tech,i weld and fabricate as a hobby/sidejob.for the hinge im using d.o.m. tubing with an inside diameter just under 7/16'' and using 7/16'' bolts with the heads cut off for the pins. i also drilled an oiling hole in the pivot side of the hinge.man what a sweet fit, no slop.as for the welder its a millermatic 210 mig with lincoln L-50 superarc wire in a .035 size. heres a few pics of the hinges.

as an amature welder i'm impressed to say the least. that millermatic 210 is sweet. i've got the 140 with AS and i love it. i'm very excited about this project. it looks like you came out of the gate sprinting! keep the pics coming!!!
post #51 of 79


Real nice, I looked up the Miller 210, 3/8" with one pass---oooh, very nice!

I think though that you could probably do it with coat hangers and a torch by the skills you have showcased so far:-)

Keep the pics coming, take your time!!!
