Thank you for the kind words. Actually, my finger is all healed. I posted some pics of the healed finger here at the end of the first post here...

I just stumbled across this thread. You are a true craftsman and make some of the best welds I've ever seen. Nice job!

The square tube that holds the tire mounting plate is adjustable. It can be slid in and out. Then, a nut and bolt secure it. Those threaded holes are so 2 more bolts can be threaded into them, so the tube doesn't rattle up and down. I ended up using different bolts than the Allen head cap screws shown in the photo.

The filler rod is 70S-3 (1/16") with argon gas.

It's not worth buying 70S-3, if you already have 70S-2. I would have used either, but that's what I had on hand.

308 is a stainless steel wire. 70S-xx wire is for steel.
