            This is the underside showing the line up of the leaf part to the handle part. Also welded underneath, leaving a gap for the nut to be welded on.

              This is a little fab trick. When centering two parts together as shown...a quick way to find the center is to measure the length...say 9 and 13/16" for example. Well, you know its close to 10 inches, so divide by 2 = 5". Measure 5" from first one end and put a mark, then the other end put a mark. Then you measure between the two marks and that's your center! No figuring, or fumbling for your calculator.

                This is the first weld. Notice no spatter when first spraying the parts to be welded with Anti-Spatter spray. This brand smells like fish... ...,but you get used to it

                  A closer look.....the spatter you see here can be wiped off with a rag!

                        This is a shot showing the bending leaf in the up position, so you can see the gussets, (stiffeners), and the "T" bolts.

                              Anti-spatter is used on both the nozzle and the parts. It is a must when doing stainless MIG. If there is any spatter, it wipes right off. Saves a lot of time cleaning up. Try it!

                              My machine is a Miller[ (what else?) CP 300 using .035" ER70S-6 wire, 50 - 50 mix AR - CO2 setup on 480v input power.
