The bandsaw was more important to me than a mig welder, couldn't bring myself to spend the bucks for a mig. I used a grinder with a wire cup brush to clean off the slag.

best can of spray I ever bought.... when the weld needs to look good, spray some of this stuff on it first.

I have a can of anti spatter spray I've never used, thanks for reminding me about it.

Ran out of old hand me down rod, and bought some new rod. If I knew how much better it would be I wouldn't have used the old stuff.

Trying out the chain hoist. The hook is within a few inches of the ground when all the way down, 110" off the ground when all the way up. The wrecking yard hoist is 90" off the ground when all the way up.

Looking great. That should be super handy to have.

Thanks, I'm happy with the way it's turning out. I still need to add a brace to each of the As, going from the horizontal support to the I beam. Also didn't get weld everywhere I want it, ran out of time and had to move it to the back. Now with it mobile I will roll it out front to work on, have to trim the tree on the side first so it will fit under. Shouldn't have much lifting limitations now. That's a one ton chain hoist, weighs 48 lbs itself.

Do you think I need another horizontal support in the A, is that too long of a span? Remember they're 2' longer than their design.

This thing isn't easy to lay down and stand back up. After dropping it today, we ended up taking off all the wheel assemblies. They add a lot of weight, and make it taller.

The welding isn't finished in this picture, we ended up turning it up side down once the wheel assemblies were off. I was able to get enough weld connecting the I beam and the As to give me some confidence in it, plus the brace will help hold it all together too.

It's a lot easier to move around with two wheels pinned to keep them from swiveling.

I got one of the As cleaned up and painted primer black, so it's almost done.

Wow, I would have sworn you stole that from PNP. Good Work.

Ha ha ha, thanks. Should be finished tomorrow, just have to wire wheel the other half and paint it. The weather kept me from doing that today, did get the semi gloss over the primer though. Also have to put on the regular car wheels/tires, one of the little donut spares already blew up.

At least you picked a popular size, pretty much every Honda out there is 4x100.

It's done.

One of the little donut spares already blew up. Somebody told me they wouldn't last in the sun, after I bought them. So it's a little taller now with the regular tires.

Already used it to put the bed back on so I can see where the PTO driveshaft needs to go.
