    Tool,

    Yep, about eight miles or so from me. I’m all over the N.E. part of the state for work.

    Tool, my tanks are non-refillable Freon jugs. I don’t need to purge them. If using a propane tank, soap and water will get the oil and such out. Then a solution of 5% chlorine bleach will help get the stink out. After that you’re on tour own!

    I think Hotfoot had a post with a picture of two guys that didn’t do the “purge” thing correctly. Be safe and be sure to post pics.

    mnt,

    The wings have a copper wash finish with some Easy Torch to get the blue-purple as if done with a torch.

    Welding on the thin tank takes some practice. I use .023 wire straight co2, HH175 turned all the way down.

    Bill C2,

    Are those copper wings? That thing is nice. I really like making the pigs, and it gives me good practice welding on the thinner stuff.

    Thanks again.

    It's Freon... or whatever refrigerant is in current use... not Propane.

    mnt, I don’t mind at all!

    I’m a marathon runner (slower as the years add up) and one of the organizers of the Pocono Marathon. To add a little extra, each year I make some sort of metal sculpture to be given as a prize to someone in the local running club. All they have to do is run a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon!

    This is the 2008 award give in May.

    I think it looks pretty darn good. I like it.

    Art is not always perfect. It is the little imperfections that give some art character. (in my case....a lot of imperfections).
