    Can't wait to see this done!!!!!!

    Hope you plan on making ABT holders,  smoke generator,  and

    a fire starter out of any left over stainless then you could

    have a complete handmade set to go with the smoker.

     And i take back the word handmade with the equipment your

    using it's hand crafted ,Fanatastic work!!!!!!

      are you putting a glass window in too?

    I am jealous of anyone that can work magic with metal-and I stand in awe of those who can do it in stainless steel. 

    I want to add a sliding shelf to the Lady to increase my smoking capacity but my son the fabricator is so busy with his project (rebuilding a 1928 Model 8 Ford) that he can't get to my want to do list.  He said that he'll bring me his extra mig/tig welder and some scrap stock so I can practice, but I don't think that I'll ever reach his skill level.

    Ought to be a law against making stainless steel working look so easy!

    Shows what the right equipment & knowing how to use it can do!

    Back at the shop today, check so the parts fits together and its works fine. Pose whith the smokerstacks lose (its not crooked [​IMG])  Have to cut off the smokerstacks and manufacture two valves to control the smoke better. In the next days the "smokerworks" come to lie down. The regular works call....

    Fantastic!  You are going to need sunglasses and sunblock when you move that outside.  Awesome job.  I can't wait to see pictures of it in action.

    You have my permission to not go to work and finish it!!!!!
  18. That's some beautiful work there. I've been a machinist most of my life. I was always a little jealous of those very highly skilled sheet metal guys. But this is over the top. Stainless is a difficult metal to work with and you make it look so easy. Nice work. [​IMG]
