Got some more wire, and some more done. I need to replace the rubber straps with some springs... Maybe add some paint.







This is how I decided to keep things lined up....



It works...
On aluminum cans any way.....



Down to about 1/8th of an inch.

That's a lot of weight (we bill by the pound), with the cost of steel it kind of makes a H-F unit enticing. What size wire did you use?

This is getting riDICKulous.....


Wait, that doesn't work......


.035

I'd bet the HF unit gives before mine.....

Plus I got the fun of designing and building mine.....

Plus Plus, no HF for over 150 miles.....

Plus Plus Plus, I got the fun of designing and building mine.... Did I say that already?

No, I'm recovering from knee surgery. I wasn't to go to work, Doc said nothing about not going to the garage......


66% done with the plate break that goes along with this press.

But I was tired, so I just came inside without taking photos....

I'm sorry, I don't mean to be overbearing or opPRESSive. I think i'ts a cool project, and hell for stout.

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the GMAW process, still playing around with it. I have to get used to how high the bead sets.

I work outdoors so it's all SMAW; 70 series for the tensile strength. We use a flux-core wire for sheet work. I think it's .078, they decided .045 wasn't heavy enough.

Now, go take your pills and behave.
