    The full size Teral gas cylinder for the MIG is on a separate trolley and connected with a 10 meter hose so I don't have to move it around much in the garage. The Argon cylinder the is going on this cart is a half length cylinder so it's not going to be top heavy.
    I've always been told not to use any compressed gas cylinder in a horizontal position. All the welding gas literature I've seen doesn't recommend using the cylinder lying down. If it works for you great but I'd rather not tempt fate.

    Built a small compressor for leather air brushing work.

    I was asked to assemble a smaller than normal roof-rack for a client. The frame that I put together will fit onto the Thule rails he has on the roof of his HiLux double cab. He has a rooftop tent on the canopy so needs the shorter frame just on the forward part of the cab.
    The frame is made from 16mm square tube with 1.6mm wall thickness and weights in a 11kg. The bottom bars will be covered with Meranti tongue and groove panels. Click image for larger version.

    It sucks that when you need something basic you cant just go out and buy now,so i cant really finish 100% until after lockdown
    Here is the nearly completed project

    No, I'm definitely not to be trusted with anything medical related. Those are casings for automotive cables, like accelerator cables etc

    I'm using acoustic carpet, it's available from any of the upholstery suppliers and it's not very expensive. About R25 a metre.

    For glue contact adhesive works best. I prefer to buy the spray can version as it's just easier to work with.

    Hi LC Man,

    Waltex Carpets CC
    121 Rissik St, Beaconvale, Parow, Cape Town, 7500

    I used
    Alcolin Hi Tack Carpet and Vinyl Adhesive to stick my carpet material down, but any contact should do. However if carpet material is too thin you might have a problem if the contact saturated the material. It becomes hard and show signs of cracking with use.
