Default A beautiful sight on a Sunday morning

Just a little Sunday morning 7018 welding on an excavator bucket.

Absolutely. Here's some pics of the bucket. My customer just uses this bucket for digging trees out, so he wanted the sides of the bucket sharper to cut the roots. He bought some weld on bits and wire welded them on....well.....needless to say they broke off in short order. So he brought it to me to have it done right. This is why the one on the top is in two pieces.

Don't think I will ever get tired of the smell of 7018. Not so good inside a horse trailer though.

looks good when you can beat gravity with the flux, it also saves on the chipping hammer too.
