Default Re: New tank inspired by Silverbear and Tinsmith

More progress on the tank today.
I got the bottom pieces cut out and bent.

I started soldering it together but after several hours of working on it
it got put away for the night.

Getting things just right really gobbles up your free time.
It is frustrating and difficult work soldering pieces together that are tough to get a clamp on while you are trying to hold the torch in one hand, the solder in the other, and manipulate in all the nooks and crannies.

I have learned when to quit for the day.

Now I understand why home made custom built stuff could never sell cheap.
It's a lot of thinking, doing, and re-doing.. You guys ought to understand the concept by now.

I won't give up or give in..
This #%^$@ thing had better not leak!

Maybe it'll be done next week end.

Here's a couple of pics.....
Thanks for viewing,
