    I'm hard to impress but...

    this guy has the goods: good skills, good presentation, good production values, good projects.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen him linked here before. Maybe I missed it

      He makes it look so easy.

      I gotta learn to weld. I just gotta.

      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

        I've watched a few, he does a nice video, has a good clear voice, doesn't ramble aka waffle, go off at a tangent etc ( I'm qualified to make these observations as I am guilty, and being Welsh unintelligible to the entire world except border collies and cats)
        I plan to watch some more.
        Thanks for the link

          I'm not a weldor so please fill in a knowledge blank spot for me.

          When he was getting the studs welded to the top in the countersunk depressions, he hit each one with a propane torch a bit before welding. What is that for?

            Helps for penetration especially with an underpowered welder.

              Thanks, you learn something every day. (This was the second. The first wasn't good news.)

                And also often used to preheat carbon steel and alloyed (tool) steels prior to welding.
                Little preheat changes the totally f***ing unweldable steel to business as usuall.

                  I like his fire basket project. Makes me think it would make a good kit - plasma cut and bend the parts and sell a kit instead of coping and cutting angle iron.....might make it a lot more fun
