Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!
So now it was a matter of tacking, making little zzzttts a half inch or so apart from each other and moving the clamp to hold things tight as needed. At one point I was making zzzzzttttts, lingering too long and just giving myself more to grind down later on. Dan set me straight and I returned to neater little zzzttts. Now the top is firmly anchored to the sides. Later on when the whole tank is together I will need to weld each seam so that it is leak proof, or at least as close as I can come to that. It is the goal, to not need a tank sealer inside, even though I'll likely need to use it.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
