it is time for a beer break and to let welder cool down, I hate not having 100% duty cycle

so I got up and went to work for "the pole" and I needed to notch a mounting slot

started with a cut off blade


and finished with a grinding wheel


I trimmed bottom of tube match angle of C channel, a few shims later



then needed to setup my project, had to use the trailer, everything level and square


mocked up for attachment to veranda (porch is skewed about 8 inches to the pasenger side for welding clearance


heading back out

OH and that dang weldment was heavy for one person

Bad-ass-ery 101: why mess around with other people when you can just show off the guns and do it yourself?

Hope things are well. Looks like you're keeping busy, so one can only hope that means you're keeping out of trouble, too.

It's situations like that Bansil that make me think you need to stick with the wine and leave the beer alone.

What times the show?
