Jewelry Press Build: Part 1

Recently, I was asked to build a Press for a jewelry maker. The press is made to use a 6 ton bottle jack as the pressure mechanism. Each platten is made up of (2)pcs of .500 HRS to create a 1" total for each platten (thus eliminating any deforming under a load). Part 1, I cut the 1/2 inch hot rolled steel plates with our Horizontal band saw. I will then weld them together using the Tig Welding process to ensure a great and clean weld. Below is pic of the press currently marketed and the plates I've cut for the press I'm building. Part 2 next week check back for the final fabrication, welding and assembly for the press.

DHC 2000 (Formerly HENROB 2000) Torch Kit

Recently, I was serching for a cheaper alternative than tig to weld aluminum parts and came across th DHC 2000 (formerly Henrob 2000 and Dillon Mark IV). I remember seeing this torch at a friend of mines shop back in 2000 but wasn't interested in it at the time. Yes there are many who don't believe that this torch can perform better than the conventional single stage torch. Looks to me if your are good at brazing this would be a quick learning curve for you.  Chck out DHC 2000 kit here !!!!!  
I'm ordering mine to use on thin aluminum parts. I'm always looking for a way to get tools and still save money. I will be doing some future projects using the DHC 2000 and will post them along with video instructions. This professional torch kit comes with everything needed for welding, brazing and cutting almost any material. KIT INCLUDES: DHC2000 torch body SIX welding tips (#0, #.5, #1, #1.5, #2 and #3) Tip Cleaner, Wrench, Check valves, Over cutter attachment, Under cutter attachment, and instructional manual.

TIG Welding repair on aluminum boat trailer fender

Just finished a repair job on some aluminum boat trailer fenders. The fenders were hard mounted to trailer frame and over time caused all mounting points to fracture and break off. I sheared some .19 thick plates to weld onto these fenders thus giving them additional strength for more years of use. Johnny my friend plug welded the bolt holes that had broken through, and then added rock shields to the inside of fenders so rocks would not get kicked up to hit boat. We were using a Miller 250 Syncrowave welder for this repair. Hope you like the videos, thanks.
