Incredible welds

  1. Stripping column bonnet for a whisky still. Rolled the condenser coils too. It's a shame to polish it. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428766608.112318.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428766622.279412.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428766697.102828.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1428766717.871419.jpg

    DW, you may not believe me....but the box is leaning against my weld bench now. I'm thinking it will be my rehab project.

    Your welds are looking clean as usual!

    Thanks Josh. If mine are clean, yours are godly.
    Take your time- I'd hate to be the reason you blow your arm apart or something.

    I love it when this thread pops up to the top :)

    All incredible stuff and utterly inspiring, albeit tinged with a dose of resigned despondency! ha ha.

    On a very good day with a complete alignment of the stars I can produce maybe an inch or so of something worth thinking is getting somewhere close to being notable, or not!

    Nonetheless, we're all hopefully learning all the time and this thread is amazing. So many thanks and do please keep it coming.

    I hate this thread. If I could choose between singing like Sinatra, dancing like Astaire or running beads like these, hand me the helmet.

    Just found this thread (4 days ago, takes a while to make it through). Very inspiring.

    @Justus - hope the recovery is complete and your back at it soon. Love your art!

    After looking at the welds on here, all I can bring to the table are incredibly bad welds. I'll keep those to myself.

    Most of the really colorful welds are tig welds on stainless steel. The color comes from temperature and the amount of shielding gas coverage.
