A brother and I do some welding projects together. For about 18 months we knew of two that were coming. Yup, sure enough one got going in June and the next one was in August last year. We have lots of policies, and we came up with one more last August. It's real simple, "WE AINT DOIN IT!"

That pertains to June, July, and August. We will give everyone 9 months out of 12. But not those 3.

Was doing the verticals yesterday afternoon. Ran smooth out of MIG wire.

So, this morning it's a hard stop and go get some MIG wire. And the closest welding supply shop is in Greenville. barf

It's good. Why spend all time burning rods when a few tacks will hold it just fine. I mean it's not like your life depends on it.

Welded, flipped over in the shop and welded the other side.

Out the shop they go.

I shot in elevation on every weld plate. All the columns were cut specifically for each weld plate, and ground clean.

Got two scissor lifts to go borrow from buddies. And another bud that is working out some time in his schedule to come help me. So, it'll be the two of us, two scissor lifts, and two welding rigs. It should get completely framed in one day.

You gotta get a little creative when you're standing and leveling columns by yourself.

5/32" E-6011, drag weld

[Linked Image]

5/32" E-7018, drag weld cover, on the four roof columns.

[Linked Image]

About 5 hours, I got them all up, leveled and completely welded. Not too shabby, by myself. The pipe is a 3/8" wall. So the roof columns weigh 150 pounds each.

I'm sure it will turn out great like all the other projects you've done; built to last a lifetime.

No way do I check the forecast at least three times a day. You're the first one that thought of it. rolleyes

Thank you sir.

I've said for many years, with steady hands you can be a surgeon or a welder. I do the one that doesn't pay the most. wink
