Today was the first day I had to weld, use the lathe and build something from an idea in my head. I enjoy the shop work since you can use your head and try to improve on the lay out and design of the equipment. Plus I take pride in my work.
On the machines that install roof bolts they have a dust collection system that is very loud. So we install mufflers and sound deadening material. We came up with the idea to install dual mufflers to maybe tone it down a bit more. Had to come up with a way to mount both mufflers in a manifold that still fits behind the cover and sound deadening.
Built this little guy. Took me way longer than it should of but the fit was perfect. 1.5 rectangular tubing, steel bullet fittings, some 1.5" strap and a steel bushing. Built 2 of them. You can see the first one in the background(only one muffler installed) I revised my design a little on the 2nd one.
