I did it, I did it!!! woohoo! A life long dream is happening, I can weld!!! cool
Congratulations Nice, now you can add that to your fantasy store too!
Cool! so, what did you weld ( picture...). How hard was it?? Do you have one of those cool welding helmets? What are your "welding plans??"
Believe me, nothing worth taking a pic of. First I just worked on making a smooth bead on flat metal. Then I welded an angle iron to that flat piece. And finally to test that I could accomplish what I want to do, we clamped two pieces of threaded rod together and I made a good strong weld between them that we couldn't break.
My desire is to weld rebar for statuary armatures. The problem with doing Riana's method is that bigger pieces will need to be reinforced when the chance that kids could crawl over them.
Good for you - I remember how good I felt the first time I soldered with a soldering torch (I made copper sprinklers). Skills like that make you feel powerful and open up your horizons.
Good for you, sweetie!
you are right, it's totally empowering! I can join metal!!! LOL
Joining and cutting metal WITH FIRE!!!

Good job! I really would love to learn to weld better in ag class in high school we had to learn to weld but I was never very good. what were you welding with mig or tig?
Wow nice!! that's pretty exciting. I hope to some day give that a try too. Soldering isn't my thing, so I've put off
WOW!!! Jumping up and down for you > excited!!!
Jane, I don't believe you are jumping up and down at all! LOL rocking your wheelchair maybe!
