wine holder

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

wine holder

Postby Burley Industries » Tue Jan 02, 2018 6:31 pm

I decided to build my wife's Christmas gift this year. It's a wine holder/wall art(ish). I got a few other people interested and I'm building a few more now. I TIG welded the first one but that took way to long to be able to make any money on the additional ones. I just did my best to dial in my miller 211 to minimize the splatter so the finish prep didn't loose all the time I gained from switching to MIG.

If you take a few minutes and scotchbrite the cooled roll before you weld it, it will yield less spatter and less clean up afterwards. You can also spray Pam on the metal to prevent any spatter beads from sticking.

I took each piece to the belt sander. The splatter isn't bad, no matter what, you are going to get some. I've never heard of the PAM trick. I wonder how hard it is to get back off to be able to paint.

Pam is a mother to get off. Worse than oil or grease.
I have more questions than answers

Get a spray can of the LIGHT anti-spatter spray (should sound like water when you shake the can) that says " paint compatable" and spray a light mist coating (barely wet) before welding. Dress welds,wire wheel etc. as you like and a quick wash down with spray brake cleaner, blow off ,tack cloth,prime, paint. I have stuff sitting outside for years done like this with no paint problems. If the raw steel is oily to begin with I usually give the stock a quick wash before it even comes inside the shop to be nicer to handle :D .
