Started working on the rear adjustable bump stops for my Willys. Basically it's going to be a tube with a flange that bolts to the frame, and a nut welded on the inside of the tube, and a bolt that can be adjustable. 3/4" nut and bolt. And I'll figure out a way to get some rubber on the end of the bolt.

Welded two washers together, welded a nut to that, and then the nut will slip inside the tube, and then I'll weld the washers to the tube. Not sure if that makes sense, it makes sense to me, but I may not be describing it right.

Starting to KIND of get confident with TIG welding. This will be the first useful thing I'm TIGing, not just running lines on plate. Not as pretty as I'd like them to be, but I'm getting some practice in

Almost finished the first bumpstop! I am quite pleased with how the weld beads look, they aren't robot perfect looking yet, hopefully I'll get there eventually!

A thick rubber funiture coaster will wrap around the end of the bolt, and that will be the contact point with the axle.

In retrospect, it probably wasn't necessary to weld two washers together, but I guess I was just to excited to weld something other than practice scrap

a hole will go on either side of the tube on the flat bar, and that's how it will bolt to the frame.

While definitely NOT up to the standards of this thread, this is the exhaust repair on my ZJ. I've only been welding 4 days and this was my first attempt at something other than just sticking flat plates together.

This is my first welding project, it's a sunflower if you couldn't tell. I started with a couple pieces of flat stock and heated the metal with an oxy-acetylene torch, and hammered the stock out. I welded two pieces to gether and then plasma cut out a circle to make the center. I then repeated the hammer process in a couple feet of flat stock, from this I plasma cut out all the petals. I had some round stock that I also hammered a bit to give it a hammered look. The pictures only show before I cleaned off all the slag and bondo'd and painted. I know it's not for my jeep, but it was for my girlfriend, and she's just as expensive

Theses welds are on a piece of 3/8" plate to 1/4" tube. The plate tie's in my bumper to my lower A-frame. Welds were done with a 20 year old Lincoln SP-100 using .035 innershield Nr-211-MP cored wire (fluxcored). This welder supposedly has a Max Welding capacity of 12 gauge according to the diagram inside the door. The setting for 12 gauge using .035 intershield wire is G-3. I used this setting J-3.5 to complete these welds. I use a reverse "C" pattern and sometimes the cursive "e" pattern. This machine is capable of welding anything I need.

I see no indication of cup walking on those welds. Just pure consistency.
