Skin job

Post by Mgraves » May 21st, 2019, 8:31 pm

Working skin on the outside went well. Stuffing with insulation. Putting 12 ga corner trim on. Got to use the new jet break. Lots and lots of welding.

Door job!

Post by Mgraves » May 21st, 2019, 8:45 pm

Door! Lots of clamps! Lots time doing little welds and walking away trying to keep warping down.

Flame latch and handle.

Post by Mgraves » May 21st, 2019, 8:53 pm

This lady is heavy! So we bent pipe to make a handle/ shelf. Flame behind the latch was to fix a miss alignment of holes. I always seem to learn more from the mistakes.

Top dressing

Post by Mgraves » May 21st, 2019, 9:02 pm

I would like to say this was done just for the hell of it! It’s to hide some warping when the stack was welded up! Learning from mistakes. Top comes off with 4 screws. Gives a drip edge for the door, keeping rain out. ??

Very, very nice. That looks super. :kewl:

I like how you decorated over the mishaps. I painted mine camouflage to hide all the warpage I had.

Yours looks awesome!
