Re: The Journey Visvi 1999 Thomas MVP ER

Thx for posting the pics of what happens when a zip disk explodes. I have seen it happen a few times. That's why I always wear my leather gloves, coat, and apron. Full face shield also. I find looking directly inline with your cutting wheel without the worry of sparks, allows me to cut far more accurate.

Re: The Journey Visvi 1999 Thomas MVP ER

Glad to hear you are OK and thanks for the reminder. Years back I kept an old face shield on the wall in my shop for the same purpose.

It had about a third of a seven inch cutting wheel that came apart embedded most of the way through the plastic. It had stopped about a quarter inch from my cheek and eye. Handed it off to a high school shop teacher who wanted it as a display for the kids there to think about. Hope they got the message.

Great looking build BTW. Keep the pix a comin'!

or

The front is all done for now. All pieces welded. Everything sealed, surface rust cleaned off, and primed. It looks much better now.

Re: The Journey Visvi 1999 Thomas MVP ER

Awesome man! I love it. So are you going to slope the back, or just go straight down vertically? I think a straight drop would be fine in the back. You've proved your metal on that front angle, now you can feel free to just button that thing up and get to the interior. Fun, fun, fun!!

Going straight down on the back. I'm glad I saved the easier end for last. I can't wait to get back to working on the inside.
