Keep it tight between the two metals, the washers are mild steel, the blue tint will tell you how far in the heat was driven in, try angling the wire a bit more into the washers and try the stepped C pattern.

 

Stay loose, i can see you are right there, regardless the flower came out good with the blue tint.

Looking real good Zach glad to see you got your tools. The flower is cool & will definitely not loose it's petals in the wind :D I would visit your local flea markets & garage sales for some good deals on hand tools. Check your local scrap yard for metal usually .40 cents a pound in my area. Your doing well & it's been good watching your progress. :thumbs:


  • trowel and iZach98 have said thanks

Thanks, yeah ive already been to one garage sale and got some good deals on hand tools, and even power tools. Now i just gotta find a good place to get the materials. Maybe i can get some at my local dump.

One question. Im going to extend my foot board on my wheel horse a little. ( to fit the gas pedal better) do i need to take the battery out of the tractor before welding? What else would i need to do before welding on the tractor?

always disconnect battery when welling if possible. it protects electrical components. especially in newer cars with computers
