Just chuggin along on my little positioner. It’s handled everything I’ve thrown at it so far but I definitely push the weight limits with some of these cylinders. #fortitudeweldfab

Cylinder work in the Fortitude shop this morning courtesy of my friends over at @keystonecylinder.
We opted for a higher tensile strength filler wire than the normal er70s-6 since these heavy little buggers are going to be used to steer a underground boring rig and operate at 6000 psi.
For the tig roots I ran 3/32” Lincoln er80s-Ni1 and for the dual shield fill/caps I ran .045 Hobart FabCo E111T1-K3 MJ H4. According to my supplier, that dual shield wire has a tensile strength of 128,000 psi. so that should be more than enough for this application.
All the joints got a tig root and 5 passes with Dual shield to fill it out. #fortitudeweldfab

Laundry list of projects going this weekend. This is the first one of the day.
One of my local fire departments wanted a box installed into their existing step for more hose storage.
Unfortunately with all the controls in the way I couldn’t weld the box in the step out of the truck. So I laid out the placement of the box in my shop, cut it out, cleaned it up and welded it out in position on the truck. Turned out pretty slick #fortitudeweldfab

Finished this high top bar table a couple days ago.
The customer has a few more of these foundry, sand mold tops available if anyone is interested in a build like this.

Got this project about 75% finished today. 6”x 1/8” wall tube for the riser and 3/16” plasma cut plates for the gussets. The customer brought me this top and a general idea of what he was looking for. The top is a original sand mold from a local foundry that’s no longer in business. I think #siliconbronze was the right choice to compliment the uniqueness of the project. It’ll be finished later this week and as always, will be one of a kind.

Welded out a couple more cylinders this morning. Tig roots and mig caps. Then I had my littlest helper with me to weld a few stainless couplings on this pump manifold.
Now off to enjoy what’s left of this beautiful day! #fortitudeweldfab

I’ve always said you gotta spend it to make it....or at least that’s what I’ve told my wife to justify me spending it lol. Either way I think that’s enough spending for one week. I’ll be cranking away all weekend on various projects trying to get some of those Benjamin‘s back.
Happy weekend y’all 🔥🍻

Quick cylinder repair this evening. The #furickcup #8 was ideal for this small, tight work. I don’t remember who first posted the @wilton.tools adjustable drill press vise for welding work but I’m glad they did because I use this thing ALL the time. Very handy tool to have around. #fortitudeweldfab

My awesome wife @hacker2011 surprised me with a new shop fridge that just so happens to be my favorite color. As cool as is was on it’s own (no pun intended) I couldn’t resist getting a little slap happy. After all, it is a weld shop fridge 😎
If you’re not on here it’s because I don’t have any of your stickers left..Hit me up!

To say I love my new weld positioner would be an understatement. #fortitudeweldfab
