  • Spray arc 2

    The project started out like this...5 1/2" hot rolled steel plate.

    Then this piece had to be built to go on top. My underpowered M-25 torch is laying beside it. It got cherry red after a pass. The machine I used is a CP300 Miller. (of course)

      The chamfer I did using a Victor machine cutter, you will see later when I hitched my MIG torch to it. The inset piece is 4" thick the rest is 2"

        Here it is in place ready to weld. The parts had heave mill scale on them, so I used a air needle scaler to break up the scale, and di a lot of grinding to get the weld areas to base metal.
        The pesi can is to show relative size

          To weld it, I had to build this frame to hold it in a 45 degree position. This helps to pour the weld metal in.

                Now I get innovative...I did the whole joint with this. At one point, my glove and sleeve parted, and I got a radiation burn that took two weeks to heal. It just goes to show just because you have experience doesn't mean you can't make mistakes...BE SAFE OUT THERE!

                  A closer look at the results...always in welding, the results governs the procedure

                    Cool Rocky! I only have one question do you think I would be albe to do something like that with my hh135?
                    Thanks

                      Here it is after stress relieve and Blanchard grinding before machining. The two 4" square columns were removed after machining.

                              and it does what?

                              A foot for an Imperial Walker (Starwars).
                              A wheel chock for an air craft carrier.
                              A fixture to weld something even bigger.

                              Don't tell us right off, maybe some other readers have some interesting ideas.
