Ti weld. Part was less than 1/2" squared. Sadly the picture came out kinda crappy



One of me actually welding. Kinda rare these days.

Looking great. Man I wish I had a shop setup like that. Ive been trying to layout a cage for a bit. Its hard because I have to measure and then cut and form it at work. If im off a little i gotta keep messing with it.


Here are some pics of my work.

Here's one I pulled off my photobucket account real quick like. Its just mild steel.



I guess I really don't understand the point of this thread other than "hey look what I can do", and I guess that's why I posted .

I don't understand why it's so wrinkled if you welded that. I mean you would have to have a pretty ridged setup and allot of fixtureing to pull that off. And you could only pull that off with a micro tigwelder. Looks like you glued some $hit together straight out of the kitchen drawer.
