Handmade – Homemade Not Cheap

I haven’t posted about Shop Projects Day results.
SNL’s recently acquired Snap-on model 230sl MIG welder had polarity correctly set but did need some major amperage, wire feed and shielding gas setting adjustments and a new bottle of CO2 shielding gas.

Daughter told my poor old SNL that she need 2 or 3 smallish wall shelf’s.
SNL, grandson and I have use up about every piece of usable steel from our steel salvage pile so I ordered 5 bars each of 1/4 and 3/8 inch round rod, as well as 5 bars each of 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch wide by 1/8 inch thick flat stock and 2 bars each of 1 X 1 inch and 1 /1/4 X 1 1/4 X 1/8 inch thick angle iron for shop, farm and home projects and a new bottle of CO2 gas. For a total investment of near $200 dollars.

Grin … my daughters wall brackets and shelf’s were not cheap!

Happy Gardening

  1. 🙂 Reminds me of the gardening adage of “eating beans for the price of steak.”

  2. Great job! Now, could you head over to my place and make me some Steel handrails that will never ever rot in our Seattle rain?
