    I like to blame my tools for my inadequacies.When I weld this chinese metal behaves like its got something in it. It will weld well and then suddenly spark and make popping noises and fizzle.

    Do you have a pressure pot? I am a bit of a regular at AMT in kempton as my son is making lures, however it is tricky to get the resins nice a clear without a pressure pot. Do you have one or otherwise how are your curing the resin?

    For the smaller castings, I have pressure pot, but the one in my post was just cured normally. You can use a blowtorch to pop the surface bubbles.

    So bietjie aan die 105 begin strip en deeglik skoonmaak. Dink dis goed om dele oop te maak, al die versteekte skroefies en moertjies het so half draai nodig om weer mooi vas te wees (na 20 jaar)

    Square tubing, plywood, inverter welder, self dimming helmet, paint and patience.

    Rack for work clothes and shoes at the bottom. Rifle safe takes some of my hanging space.

    Apart from the helmet, I recently invested in a cut-off saw. This also makes a huge difference. Marking 45 degrees is one thing but to then cut it straight on the mark with an angle grinder is another.

    Since we had the renovation done on the kitchen I've been wanting to build a new security gate for the back door. The old cheapie that was fitted when I bought the house wasn't worth much. We also needed to make it as difficult as possible for the local pigeons to get in to steal the dogs food. With my design I had to take into account the wooden door frame and door with the glass panels. I used 50x50mm square tube as the 2 side frames that are attached to the wall. The door is 25x25mm square tube wit a 100x25mm cross piece for the lock. I've welded in expanded metal to finish the door off. Tomorrow I'll weld on the hinges and do the fitting of the door before painting it with the hammerrite paint. The last photo below was a test fit before I packed up for the day.

    Nice work. Here’s a tip, I saw a guy at a camp site that had put a starter motor on the crank handle. I could not believe how easy he moved his two wheeler van around. Worked like a charm.

    Managed to finish the first version of our camping shower pump.

    I didn’t have all the fittings I actually wanted to use so ended up making do with what I had around the workshop and the local Spar!

    I’ll add some hose clamps to the fittings and the the next step will be the actual shower head fitting. I’m planning on using something that has an adjustable flow valve of some sort in order to turn the water on and off when needed, the Shurflo pump has a pressure valve switch so will turn off automatically.

    Heating the water is my next step, either fairly straight forward with a jerry can next to the fire or a gas powered system.
