Koolaid? Sure I'll have a glass.
I have more questions than answers

Nothing interesting - floor drain for a shop to fit an odd size opening.

Perfect example of something that should have been mig or stick welded...

TIG welded it instead because I like it that way :D

1/8" material, 1/16" filler, 150 amps in an attempt to approach mig speed :D 8-)

We got anyone in his area to go by the shop and see if this is real?

Nice work 5th!

That weave in the first pic is sick, but what is the purpose of the inner weave? Is it for appearances or does it serve a purpose?

Thanks guys!
I've been tig welding professionally for about ten years. If anyone's in western Oregon come by anytime!

That weave was just for fun. I finally got a bottle of helium at home so I ran a bunch of random beads. I rarely use a weave at work and especially a triple weave,but they are fun.

Sweet!
I have the incredibly rare blessing of completely unlimited access to helium. One of our clients provides whatever we ask for because I use it in leak detection.
