They did have a sheet of this metal they had labeled "weldable" stock. To me it looks like just plain old cold rolled steel. I guess it is weldable stock since it is not plated? Anyway a new term for me.
Going to paint it so it will not rust. How ever the weather is not cooperating today, rain and wind...........
It is an experiment anyway so if there is something else to the weldable thing that will be a problem I can go back and try to find what I set out to get.
Now I have to find my sheet metal gauge to see if it is 26GA like the label on the bin said or more like 22GA which it feels like to me. Who knows maybe the weldable stock is something total different and this piece was just in the wrong place. I would have asked but I doubt anyone would have know much.
Ed, if it is 26 Ga, it is going to quite difficult to weld.
You REALLY need a TIG, to even attempt it. MIG or
stick will just burn it up.
10 ER, stripped down.
Basic 10ER, Parts machine. Will be a semi-dedicated drill-press machine.
10 ER, a "survivor" of the trailer fire, in the back yard, needing restoration. Has a Mk5 headrest. Finally, stripped down.
Numerous parts, for Model 10 stuff. Except for lower saw guard, A and B adapters, I've got it.
Looking for one more, or some 9 inch extension table raisers.
