But it was fun. Really need to take a MIG welding course. The most disappointing part of the whole thing.
Amen! I'd like a few one-on-ones with anybody who makes good welds. I hate classrooms with a passion.
I would have made a clevis and pin instead of a hook and been done with it.
But as David says, if it works, who cares! You had fun. That's what really counts. Especially at your ripe old age!
