I cut the tubes on a lathe and then used a miter gage on a belt sander to sand the angle. This was all done before I left on Friday, I just took everything home to weld it.

I love seeing all the great looking weld posted here. Myself, I wanted to learn tig welding to do small fabrication and repair of stainless steel parts for boats. Today I was able to help a friend by welding a mount back onto a porthole frame. Not a lot of welding just 4 tacks from 16 gauge to .025. While it was not the best looking weld it made him smile.

also 2 other small boat projects

Started working last night on a 16 inch 300# steam main under ground. There still digging up pipe trying to find the leak. It has an insulation case and a welded 24inch jacket. If they can't find the leak visually then there going to bring in a smart pig. It's a robot that can ultrasound the pipe from the inside. Either way we will be cutting off the jacket and repairing the pipe, or cutting out some holes big enough to get the robot in. We only have a one week window so it may not all happen this week. I'll post more pics as I can.
