Various welding projects

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?

That stool looks pretty hard.
You should get a bottle of stool softener.

Just a couple welders and a couple of big hammers and torches.

Was welding some 1,5 mm to 4 mm diamond plate tonight. I dont have much time with ali but this went easier than I first thought. Beveled the edges down to half thickness of the plate and pushed the sheet up to top level. 100 Amps, melted down the excess sheet and used little more than a half rod of 1,6 5356 filler for a half meter weld.

Looking alright?

Should I do a fillet weld on the outside or just put some sealer after the cap is welded in? It will sit under a car.

I'm intrigued.

There will be a fuel tank on the diamond plate. A catch tank will be hiding behind the alu shell. Will put a fitting thru a grommet on the domed part and connect fuel line there.
The alu shell is only there to keep dirt out.

This is the joint I did

Editing my post. Sorry was not trying to hijack this thread. I should have read it clearly before I posted pictures of a couple of "my" projects. Pics = deleted.

Lets start over.... I love that stool. Nice work! I wish I could do that.

No worries mate, I just kept mine in a single project thread to find it easier. Dont mind at all if anybody posts anything else.

Thanks for the stool comnent. As I use to say, if I can do it so can you.
Just some planning, patience and simple tools needed. Even made this with a broken toe, steel toed shoes was the most comfortable to wear at that time so why not doing something fun to forget the pain :lol:

Hey Anders! I'm curious about your settings. I do a good bit of welding on beer kegs for homebrewers lately so I weld alot of thick fittings to 18ga.SS. What were you running?

Sheet is 1,5 mm
Using a pedal, max 45 amps
1,6 mm 2% thoriated
Gaslens with #4 cup
1 mm 316 filler.

I start with the arc focused on the fitting. When it gets wet, angle down and start adding filler when sheet and fitting start to fuse together.
