We have a router table for the main parts. Then we just use a shear or band saw for everything else.

I haven't been around much lately due to some health reasons havent done any welding. Only did one project in months and it was my daughters new launch pad. Amazing how out of practice I was, felt like a beginner again and was shaky as hell. I got it done except blast deflector we designed not made yet. I'm not happy with my welding looks like crap but she likes it and its works.

why use standard nozzles after gas lens where invented. Kinda of like starting fires by rubbing sticks together.

Good to see you back again midget

Looks like a nice project, I like anything that will include smoke, fire and the possibility to explode

Fire mission danger close :mrgreen:

Thanks Andersk, it has been too long. There is a lot to catch up on.
Since you like things that explode you might like this one. Has nothing to do with welding though. These are some six inch shells from a New Years shoot.

Riding the gravy train on a Saturday night! 3/32 tungsten, #8 cup w/gas lens since I couldn't make it happen with a straight collet and #6 cup, and 4943 filler. Roughly 1-1.25rpm on the positioner with the welder set at 175, probably only using 100-125 as it gets to the end of the weld. ImageImage

looks real good Sam, are you just tacking and welding or doing the cutting of the pipe also?
