you're right Chris, at first we were concerned that the 115 volt may not be enough, but for sheet metal of this gauge it is perfect. I thought the fab job was pretty good myself...LOL :-)

It definately looked like a good job--There's lots of interest around here in how well that HF spot welder work(s) and the gauge of the material- I've been wanting one of those for a while -----Thankx

Great work! Looks like a good factory replacement piece! I'm thankful for the demonstration of the HF spot welder too!

Great job!
I have had to fix & refix to many of those shields. Some people try their best to fix'em but they just don't do it right. I finally got a mig welder so I can weld thinner pieces. The old stick welder just wasn't cutt'n it any more. lol
In fact yesterday I welded a new piece on the same shield you fixed, where it bolts to the intake. The tab was rivoted and welded at some point in it's life and it still broke.

Well Just got home from work. Todays shop adventure is supposed to be making a seat for one of our Buddies (UncleCake)'s John Deere A I think, he wants us to fab a bench seat for him. Then the Villager is going to get a strut replaced, and the Dodge 1500 is supposed to get a front end rebuild, and maybe the BMW gets a new H20 pump...so not a lot of tractor stuff but I'll post up what we do...
