The overhead weld looks presentable. Looks like one pinhole in one edge. Edges could be straighter, but nothing burning another 50 lbs of rod will not cure.[emoji4]

My shop could custom build it for sure. But it will not be cheap. But just depends on how much time it would save for the firewood guy and is it worth it to him? [emoji4]

I think I’ve seen one in Abom79 videos. That’s the closest I’ve been to one.

It depends on how much you are going to use it in spray mode. If as a hobbie, maybe an hour here and there, is a lot different than 6-8 hours a day 5 days a week.
