Default Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!

Thanks Curt.
I'll be sure to let it cool off after any real welding.
How goes your summer? The mosquitoes are now out for blood after all the rain and now a warm up.
I got the Panther back together and running. No leaks from the gas tank. Sure is nice being able to weld up something like that gas tank and being able to make the frame repair. I mentioned that I tack welded the steel center kick stand to the frame which is a big improvement as no matter how much I tightened it, it wanted to loosen up and change position on me. Not any more... I also welded large washers onto the ends of the legs so that they have "feet" now. Much better as they don't tend to sink into softer ground. The welder has already contributed a lot to this build alone.
Sounds like you got your money's worth out of your old Lincoln.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
