I work with liquid hydrogen tankers. About five of them would fill the Hindenburg. In other words, I work on rolling bombs that travel the same roads as my grandkids' school busses, so I take my job pretty seriously.

I have no idea. I tried to upload a comment and it was tripled and wouldn't let me delete it. Internet is goofy the last couple days.


Ya know, I always say the problem is most likely between the keyboard and the chair....

I'll agree with you there but my internet was acting really strange and now I read about this giant world wide hack...wonder if that had anything to do with it? Everything was fine yesterday and today, no problems at all.

Well, can't say much about a worldwide hack, that doesen't sound good though.

We'll blame it on the computer and internet this time Nail....

Yeah it was weird. I rebooted my computer and my router about 10 times and it was still messed up. Been fine the last 24 hrs.

Odd, good its working out now, darn gremlings.

Whatever happened to welding this cannon back together? Are you leaving the firepowder in it or removing it?

Well, here it its.

Not that smooth with the process. Dinged it with a chipping hammer to stress it a little. Try to look like the rest of the cast.
Hard for me to tie it in with the cast. Ugly edges.
Should have tried to clean out the cavity more, very difficulty for me to keep the impurities out of the weld. UGH

Not very clean, but a little paint and on the bottom side should work them.

Thanks for all the help.
LOVE the site!

Looked way to easy on the video!
