:anim_32:We blow holes in Fords! Mike (737pilot) came over to the shop to get some practice welding. It's a 66 Mustang coupe I've replaced the whole front end on after a collision it experienced. Mike wanted to learn how to weld, so he laid down some molten metal on the old 'Stang. Mike sorta turned into a monster after that. He started welding anything he could strike an arc against. Doors, plastic cups, his foot. You name it!! :eek: Don't worry Otis, no Chevys were harmed in this photo!!!

Cheers:anim_32:

HA! I just saw this thread! I am no good at welding! Thank God it was a Rustang! Since Dave didn't take any close ups of my work, here's a few examples:

don't quit you day job mike. :scared0016:
:laugh: :laugh:

I'm not an expert by no means, but I just love to weld... don't know what's wrong with me :rolleyes:

Remember Mike practice makes perfect :tu

It's just like flying - if you do a bad landing just redo (if it wasn't too bad...) :D

Glad I fly better than I weld!! I'm good at destroying things. Maybe Dave will post some pictures of the destruction we did to his Nomad floors today!!

Don`t feel bad Mike. I bought a wire welder a few months back and finally started playing with it about 4 weeks ago. My welding is not the greatest either. But it seems to be getting better. That said i wouldn`t weld on anything that might be life threatening to me or anyone else.:D I can`t find enough welding projects to play with now though.

ummmm next time try welding from next to the work instead of tossing the puddles across the shop and hoping they land right....

(or invest in a TIG - they are super easier than stick or MIG)

When Drinking Becomes a Problem

WHEN DRINKING BECOMES A PROBLEM.

This is a man striking a conversation.







Wonder how long the conversation lasted
