Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Weekend wrap-up

(Written Sunday afternoon, posted when I had signal. Sorry ’bout the delay)
Laundry day and grass day and “get it ready for another week” at the millstone, but I was not idle on the tower either.
Not much done but headway nonetheless.  Here are the visuals ferya.


Gotta love that warp in there


Warps straightened out some and call it a day


A weld from yesterday after hitting it with a wirebrush

As you can see, practice indeed does improve one’s self.  I won’t say makes perfect because perfection is for universe,  not us squishy Lil lifeform types.  Try as we might,,, 
But that’s a discussion for other forums,right?  Yeah, leave it lay for awhile. 
Anywhoos, it’s still hotter than a habenero on a jalapeño sandwich round here and ol Dio just wants to sit ’round for a wee bit and watch the birdies and flutterby’s melt. Voo is hangin’out under my aunts house hiding from the heat so I am dogless  for a few hours. Time ta chill.  Talk in a couple a days.  
Peace (what we all want but can only strive for in this world)

    One good thing about welding on a hot day. Makes it feel cooler when ya stop !
    For the attachment points of the guys, perhaps flat iron wrapped into a U on the tube. No weld on the U clamp, other than a tab of flat welded to the tube to prevent slipping down ?

    • I will be covering this in a later post. I did this on the last pipe tower and it worked great, so I will use it again. But, I won’t show ya yet, spoiler n all. Neener Neener neener! ;-P

      Yeah, getting away from the hot points feels like AC even if it’s 100+ out.
