Hmmm, may have to push back my retirement a couple of weeks. However, I could use the welder to make a little extra money!! Retirement back on track! Love it when a plan comes together!! LOL!
I did all of this with a acetylene and oxygen torch & fluxed brass rod, I do have a mig welder and a couple cracker box stick welders, but for things like this I like a torch and either brass rod or a cleaned up piece of just mild steel wire like a coat hanger, I'm no pro at it but I can make it work.
Best wishes and congratulations on retirement coming soon, being just a regular working fella myself I figure my retirement party will be at a funeral home and I'll miss it....LOL!
