Alan, don't miss your birthday thread down in Off Topics.
I already told them you're only 81 years old.

Alan,
Thanks for showing us some of your work. I always enjoy the pictures of good welding skills.

As someone who's been around pressure welds, boilermakers and pipefitters,(not mine), I respect the skill that you show.

Alan, Jig work is an art in it's own right..

I am always amazed at how many people come to me to have something replicated or made new and they are like it needs to fit from here to hear and it should look like this and this part needs to be rotated about 20degrees..


I then say the proper way to do it is to make a jig and this will pretty much guarantee a perfect result..

They say oh, is it an extra cost... Yes it is..

OH, then we can just do it by eye.. "WE" being the key word and of course if it doesn't fit then I'm a terrible welder and they swear they will go somewhere else.. Yet when the job does what its supposed to they say thanks and that's the end of it..

Ah, the joys..
