More stick work. All Welds are done on the inside. I didn't want any welds on the outside for this. I don't know why, just wanted to

Hey, looks good to me and I'm sure the customer will love it. I really like your safety shorts and sneakers too.:rolleyes:

Question. Do you not have a wire welder? I'm not being critical because I only got mine less than 2 years ago but I wish that I had gotten it a lot sooner. Projects like you just did are perfect for wire machines.:)
