Thumbs up

Thank you very much for the A-Z copper rose making information.
I can only agree 'plus 1' with what Pat said.

Very nice work.

Sure am glad I asked for the in-process pics. Great descriptions. I think I can now make some of my own. Thanks for your time to do this.

Good job on the rose and the how to! I've lost count a long time ago of how many steel roses I've made but I've never made a copper rose. your how to makes me want to give it a go.

Thanks again,

Those are great. I guess I'll be getting into that as a next project. Trying to build up my skills and those are inspirational.

Default Copper Roses

I have to agree with everyone that those are truly a work of art. And like all the rest, I will have to give it a try myself. Great pics and descriptions. Thanks

I made some for my wife a couple of years ago. Instead of soldering I tig welded every thing. Copper is a diffrent animal than steel, takes alot of amps to do the job. Nice looking work.

There is no such thing as too much ammo.....the real problem is a target deficency.
