Smile Welders post up them welds!!

With all of the welders on the GS I think it would be cool to see some welds and or pieces being welded. I like seeing things come together!

I can't get the wife to take pics of me working.
And I rarely think about pics during the build.

Imagine if all the TBH builders got together, what a project that could be!!!
No tellin' what would get built!

This is the shipping fixture for one of the space shuttle trainers. The trainer was used at Johnson space center for years then moved to a museum after the shuttle was retired.

After it was built the trainer was loaded in it and then put on this skid that rolls into the Supper Guppy and flown to it final destination.

This fixture was to carry just the nose.

Some amazing welds there. I don't know the first thing about welding but it's one of those skills that I've always admired.

If one of y'all in the centerville area are looking for some side work, please send me a PM so we can discuss. Thanks.

Great thread. The stairs have special interest to me. There's an old metal stair case in a defunct cotton gin that I'd love to "harvest" some day.

I enjoy a little spark photography.
