Default recap root

heres a few better pics to show root, the gap is 2.5 ,i thought this might be 10 ,but the keyhole says 13.remember take the start and finish down to blue,on these pics i will need to do this one more time with 10, a longer 13 may finish.these are 2.5 rods . remember all the metal blowing in front of your fresh arc, the stuff that bridged the gap any old way, that blue says its ready to come away. f/j

Flange,
Crystal clear now you mention it, I must of been having a senior moment.
We have put our heads together and have a couple of new schemes for the new year. We are going out to industry and hopefully get some work in, say making foot plates for a structural building, this way the apprentices can gain some experience on marking out, cutting, drilling/punching, they will have a bit of competition between themselves and the outside company supplies the steel which saves us money. We won't be taking work away from anyone as it will be a prequoted job anyway. It's a win win situation.
Clive

clive what with the boom and chance your lads are getting,things look good for them.the first rolled filler is the pipe you roll away,using the bend as a handle,remember the weld is on top 5 to 12.the second is the weave type,4 mm the weld in this case is rolled towards you vertical weave,try to keep the tracks as shallow as possible when grinding.this was a large picture sorry this is all i was left with. f/j

Flange, you make it look way too easy. Thanks for the "how to".

I can't seem to recall that song. Could you hum a few bars?
1 23, 1 23 - is it a waltz?

Teddy Bear Picnic, UK style...


I tried uploading a midi file from Lilly's FP3 player, didn't work. But I found it online here... It's much longer, and should be good for going around the big pipes .

That's it...

My brains officially broken...

I fired up the tune, queued up a slideshow of Flanges pics, & developed a mental image of Flange working away with that tune blaring full blast in the shop.
