  1. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    Hello everyone, my name is Ivan. I want to share with you the technology of making a panther out of wire. Its height is 80 cm. To make such a panther, we will need: a welding machine(normal), a Chameleon welding mask, an iron knitting wire with a diameter of 5 mm (about 10 kg). First of all...
  2. Metal Fabrication
    So, I got my hands on this 48" lawn roller where it was left full of water over the winter which expanded, splitting the seam open as per the attached pics. I plan to try to bend this back into shape after heating it with a torch and then weld the seam shut. Has anyone had to do a similar...
  3. Tools
    I have an old 10" cast iron craftsman table saw. There seems to be countless issues with the pully and keyways coming off while using. The saw blade arbor half moon keyway is the issue. It has waffeled out so much that the set screws (I just added a 2nd) do not hold it....even with...
  4. Project Showcase
    This may or may not be another welding project. Okay it is mostly welding but since a majority of us have to stay at home right now I thought to myself it’s a good time to go through the scrap pile and make something without going to the store. We are planning on remodeling out...
  5. Metal Fabrication
    Here are some of my projects from the last couple weeks (welding stuff), the bottle tree is something a saw on the internet, supposedly bad spirits fly into the bottles at night trapping them until the sun rises and kills them. The zombie axe was for my son, he loves it, I made it from a piece...

    I found this simple idea for nesting metal frame work tables from the mythbuster guys. I don't own any welding gear right now, and I don't have any plans for future welding projects. Any idea how much it would cost someone to weld the metal legs/frame of the table together? How is the best way...
  8. Automotive Repairs
    I was just given a 8'(L) x 4'(W) x 4'(H) enclosed utility trailer and attempting to do some of the work needed by myself. The trailer seems to be in pretty good condition....some rust but I plan on cleaning that up and then repainting. The hinges holding the door on were busted and need to be...
  9. HVAC
    I have an old non-EPA certified Colony Hearth Earth Stove fireplace insert (at least I am sure it does not meet current EPA Phase II standards for emissions.) Rather than spend $2,000 to $3,000 for a new efficient stove, I would like to be able to upgrade this old stove and make it more...

  11. Building & Construction
    Hi, I've been fixing up a clients front steps and they have an old iron railing and they have asked me if I could build them something nicer. I have a little welding experience but I've never built anything like that before. Does anyone have any good advice or know of a site where I can learn...

    Hi, I am new using a welding generator and I was wondering if someone could tell me if the chassis of the welding generator needs to be grounded? I need to use this in a field where there is no structure grounding. I also do not plan to use the auxiliary outlets, just the welding equipment. The...
