Did a little work on the house last night (don't know if anyone cares or not haha)
Replaced my mid 90's cooktop with a 30" Bosch induction top. I also think I'm going to take the old hood/fan/motor that was attached to this one and make a welding fume extractor out in the shop with it (pics to follow if I ever get around to it)

Decided to put the little workbench/weld/whatever table build on here.

My neighbor gave me this HEAVY steel table completely true and made out of 3/16" angle with 3/8" plates on the legs for FREE, yes FREE

I just let them borrow some jumper cables and a battery charger haha.





Drilled 16 1/2" holes through the plates (that was fun) and put some locking casters on it





Randomly found this big-A** gopher turtle digging holes in my yard- then before fighting him learned the were a protected species and relocated him to a little fishing spot I know of.



Got an old school BA wilton 6" vice off of craigslist for $15!!







Had some MDF leftover from something so I cut this out/routered all the edges with 3 different bits and countersunk some bolts into it















Mounted the two vices and a little 12"x12" 1/4" plate of steel with one bolt inverted for a ground clamp for welding







Wanted to toughen the MDF up a little bit and keep it from staining so I used some polyester resin leftover from the fiberglass speaker box build













Waited for it to get a little tacky and ran a plastic textured roller over it to give it a little grip




Also took some scrap and some parts from the previous cook top and made a campfire grill! I'm planning on using the old motor and fan from the cook top to make a welding fume extractor (pics to follow whenever I get around to actually doing it)







Re-organized my "work-station" and added a desk top that they were throwing away at work. Drilled a hole in the middle to route all of the power cords to a strip with a switch on it.

Some literally "hot" pics of the GF while I was teaching her how to weld



You can't really tell bc I covered the front of her feet with an apron (and she's also wearing another fire proof apron but she is wearing heels and a pair of my boxers. This was ONLY because she was gas-shielded Mig welding and it has hardly any spatter, otherwise I would have made her wear some actual boots or something incase a little piece of metal decided to shoot out of there

Well here are some random goings on from this weekend-

- My dog's halloween costume this year : spider pug! Just put one of those posable spiders through his harness, he haaaaaaaaaates it haha.


Decided the shop fan needed some decorations on the blades so I started with this one-





Painted



Also made this little thing last night mainly out of drop pieces I have received from Eddie(BESRK) and Dave (Pikes Peak Tralers) Thanks guys! My GF is a huge Detroit redwings fan and she has been hounding me just to make her something so I kind of went with the Niklas Lidstrom theme (and also made it huge and around 30 lbs so maybe this will be the only one she wants me to make haha). The plate with the 2 hearts on it was the first thing she ever welded, and the one with initials is something I did just showing her how to weld.
Notice he is a "red wing" haha. He's also holding a hockey stick but you can't really see it in the photo.

They were throwing this cart away at work for no apparant reason and I happened to drive the jeep that day so naturally it came home with me and is now a welding cart-It's fiberglass too so not too flammable



Put a couple bolts in front to hang the mask and gloves







Added this nifty little torch holder (don't know what it originally was but it came off of one of the previous laptop stands)





Added a board at the bottom to raise the welder a little to be able to open the side and change rolls/polarity etc. I still need to cut off the excess. Also cut a groove for hanging a grinder, added a hook to hold the recip. saw and power cords, used the old drip trays form my cook top as trays and bolted those in the top and bolted the bottle holder to the bottom.











Total cost---$0

Update:

Got a piece of 3'x4' 1/2" steel off craigslist for $150!! Delivered to my door! haha

-Took everything except the Wilton Vice off of the table
-Set it up there (this thing weighs like 255lbs)
- put two bolts in it just to keep it in place
- poured some phosforic acid on there to dissolve the rust (and part of my arm )
- Started planning out a plasma cutting grate for the open area by the Vice
