This was yesterdays efforts ... and it's pretty slow going today ... I've got sweat dripping onto the glasses ..

It's all a matter of cleaning everything up now ..

Hey fella, im a boilermaker by trade, looking at your welds, id either turn the volts up abit or turn the wire speed down abit, just to flatten your welds out some! And you wouldnt need to grind them.

Ok, here are the finished mounting brackets.

Damxr - Yeah I can't get the consistency. I'll have a great run and then make a mess of things. I think overall I'm getting much better.
As long as it holds so I try to make sure there's penetration ... one day I might be able to keep it neat too
I knew as soon as I looked at 'round' and exhaust pipe thin I knew I was going to have difficulty. It's all a learning curve but I love welding .. not sure about doing it for a job though
