Living on a farm, I have several other small projects too numerous to recall, but these are the biggest ones I've done that get the most use.
Where do you get your rubber pieces for the front of those bumpers?

This is what I do. Small diameter, high pressure, hydrolic lines for deep water oil well control systems. And yes all those welds in the box were done by hand. Some on the bench and some in the box. I love my job!

uphill weld on 1 inch plate with a 35 degree bevel, heat treated and 2 test done on it, 1 test was a pull test, couldn't pull it apart, 2nd test was a bend test, couldn't bend it under the desired maximum pressure.

Coon007 and I built this 6 wheel skid steer a few years back. Trailer and everything was built up from scratch. Used a 15 horse Honda to power it and everything runs thru hydraulics. Clocked it out at 38 mph and could crawl over anything except wet clay

Built this on my safe time while in the sandbox. Guys at the camp asked if I could weld a piece of sheet metal to the bottom of their old cooker....it was way trashed, so I figured we would bring a little Tejas to the camp. I was pretty happy the results, considering what we had to work with/ materials and tools.

There are some great projects and fabricators on here! I might have to "borrow" some of these ideas. This is a blind me and my son built last year. All metal...mostly angle and square tubing. It's as solid as a brick you know what!

Decided to get fancy on a disc cooker stand and TIG welded the whole thing, took forever compared to MIG but it looks cool.

I weld something a little different than what most people weld on here. These are hydraulic lines that control subsea well operations.

Firepit that was way bigger than intended.

New floorboards for my old jeep wagoneer.


I also built a kayak/ladder rack that fits in the stake holes and was easily removable.

I did very similar work in the aerospace industry for a while . Most was -12 or less. Some was a -3 pipe/tube, hose, and fittings. Dust/lint free environment and air conditioned . It was a good job . But I didn't care for the second shift hours. Would gladly take a day job of it now. Or better yet, 3rd shift it again.
