I REALLY need a tall welding table..
I purposely wanted to do this "overhead" weld to see how it came out. I know I should have flipped the material over...
We used the drill press to add two mounting holes.
I loved the HAZ (heat affected zone) discoloration on the insides of the letters, makes a really cool effect.
Overall, not bad, probably 3 hours start to finish, with lots of explanation and practicing without actually cutting or welding. He did GREAT for his first time, and some of my welds looked better too - practice helps!
