Welding!
 
So I finally got my own welder going thanks to Shotshell for the help! Still haven't gotten to the bumper, but here's the redeux on my tent rack.

Before is hard to see, but it went all the way to the bottom of the bed, was flimsy, blocked bed space and ugly too.

Looks fantastic. :thumb:

Nice work on the frame...um you might consider covering up the bare skin on your arms though...

Nice. What machine did you end up with?

Squishy! 05-11-2014 01:11 PM

It's a Lincoln Handy MIG. 115v 15amp power 88 amp max welding.

It was a little funky to get used to, but once Travis and I got it dialed in it worked pretty darn good. I got a stealin deal on the welder, cart, mask, and wire.
