|I USED THE EDGE OF MY WORK BENCH TO MAKE THE RADIUS OF THE ENDS|
I HAVE A 30 "SHEET METAL BRAKE,BUT THIS PIECE WAS ABOUT 32" ACROSS.
|THIS IS 12 GAUGE METAL. I WANTED IT TO BE THE SAME GAUGE STEEL,SO AS TO .|
HAVE THE SAME OR BETTER STRENGHT.THE ORIGINAL SECTION WHICH I
WELDED ON IS 10-12 GAUGE ALSO,I THINK.
How I came to this conclusion is when I started doing the fire wall
|LET ME TELL YOU.A PAIR OF HEAVY DUTY ELECTRIC SHEARS ARE WONDERFUL.THEY CUT |
REAL SMOOTH,AND I ONLY CUT MYSELF A COUPLE TIMES.NOT BAD FOR AN
APRENTICE, HUH ??
It took me about 7-8 hours of work to make this.It looks pretty good, and once I grind off the welds and smooth everything in,it should be fine."I can say,"BRAG" that I made it, and it saved me about 350.00+++ not including labor.I work cheap, just rewarding myself with an occational Guiness from my handy refrigerator in my shop.Here are some flicks of the wall set up.As always comments good or bad are welcome.I need the opinions.They may help from making mistakes.THEY WILL BE PUBLISHED ON ON THIS BLOG, SO TONE THE THE LANGAUGE DOWN.
Thanks for looking,
