More Progress...

James and I continued work on the "alligator bench" on Saturday. Grinding and preparing top and bottom panels, building the jig for welding, building another jig for cutting uprights,and welding top and bottom together. Next week we do cross bracing and more supports and then start to weld on the side panels. I am pretty sure we have done the easy stuff. Stainless steel is a bitch. I'll be happy when we are finished.

  1. Stainless is a bitch? Donna Moore taught me and my class in Little Rock how to weld stainless with the oxy-acetylene torch (aluminum too)..she lives and works in New Zealand..maybe you can cop a vacation and larn how to torch stainless too! She had a little jar of flux she used..and matched her alloys.
