So, I've been trying to stay busy here lately by any means possible, even if it means building gardening supplies for my mom...
My mom is an avid gardener, and always grows and cans a whole bunch of Tomatos every year. Between normal wear and tear, and the epic winds we have here in Ohio, the 99 cent store bought tomato cages never last very long.
So, she decided she wanted something stronger.
One day, we sat down and came up with a simple design, and I got my sister Heather to help me build them. We drove to the city and bought a whole mess of 3/4" round bar stock, and all the 1x1/8" flat stock my steel yard had in stock, came home, and got to work.
The round bar sure was rusty, but the flat stock rolled quite nicely in my $20 homemade ring roller. We got everything setup, and I gave her a crash course in mig welding with the 187, and she welded the rings closed herself, defiantly didn't do a bad job for a first time welder.
Anyway... We made a couple videos about this project, just thought I'd share. Hope everyones having a good week, enjoy the videos Yeehaw!! :)
