Finally dug out some pictures of aluminum projects,....

Ayuh,.... Just for Big Jim,....

This 1st one came to be, because Deb wanted More flower pots,....

A couple years ago, I cut the centers outa some ole junk props, 'n welded caps onto the bottoms,...
Been doin' it for years, lotsa Prop flower props 'round here,....

Out in my pile of treasures, I have some aluminum street light extension poles,...
Oval shaped spun aluminum,.... Just like on the bridge in the background,...
Laid it down, curl up, 'n cut a Bunch of saw cuts, 1/2 way through,...
A come-along from end to end, pulled a bigger arch into it, 'n welded up all the cuts I'd made,....
Added a fishin' reel to it, some rod eyes, then strung it with a garden hose to water all the flower props,...
To get More flower props(6) out there, a couple aluminum tent poles gave me the horizontals, 'n braided fine ssteel weldin' wire ties it All together,....

Also, on the big round steel plate the fishin' pole is bolted to at it's base, is the aluminum prop/ aluminum SBC flywheel, filled with lead ballast umbrella stand I built awhile back,...

This is My buoy sculpture, sorry the pic is turned, donno how I did that,....
It's an aluminum propane tank, that floats, 'n the bell rings, red blinkin' light, 'n all,... but I don't wanta pay for a permit to float it out front,...
So it sits on the hill,...

Imaginative use of scrap aluminum parts.

I approve.
