  1. Looks tight.
    Good work.
    I assume you're a welder also? Or have shop access.

    Iam not a welder. Iam a boiler maker that can weld to a high spec. I probably weld once every 3 months to keep my eye in ☺ but in general i work with metal and i have all the tools at my finger tips. But always learning thats the key to success

    Also welded the fb to the cc. I thaught it needed a gusset to help suport the weight. And no i didnt weld it the wrong way up... the smoker is upside down .i have been turning it to make it easy to weld

    Well, now you've done it....   I will NEVER take any pictures of my welds and show them on the forum....    NOT....   folks do have to see that there are us welding neophytes out there somewhere...  DON"T look at the welds folks.....  the food will not taste any better.... 

    The reason those welds look so good is he's welding upside down....  on his head, so to speak....  just look at where Australia is on a globe...  That's got to be the reason...  or it's the Aussie beer....   darn good stuff......

    This is probably overkill. But i have rolled my cc door sealing so that it matches the radius of the cc.

    The picture shows the slight curve when up against a straight edge

  16. Not over kill, it's called attention to detail. I did mine on the brake press as well. Gives it a nice contour. And I have no leaks. ;)

    Wish i had a brake press. I just added extra green when i rolled my cc. Then i cut off into the stips i need
