So I stated playing and this is my first fab project. bent the pipe and welded two pieces together for the straight piece. Don't know when I will use it but fun to know how.

I love this hobby...

Oh, the 212 motor is 99.00 bux might as well go get one tomorrow. Maybe I could use the pipe on that. LOL...

Know what you mean Pluto.

Hey, the bend and weld look great.

Got a welder and was teaching my self with the help of folks here. Was too funny. The phrases "You welded what to what!?" "You hit it with a sledge?" and "POOR bikes..." were used, lol.

One thing I was warned about and am glad, conduit can put off some nasty fumes. Just be sure to be in a well ventilated area.
worst apocalypse ever
