Making the welder pay for itself

Recommended Posts

Weld a bunch of mowers together and just do the yard in one swat!

No need for a welder in this application. Duct tape will do fine for one season!

This morning we took down and put away the Christmas decorations. The Eagles game comes on at 4:25. What to do to kill 4 hrs???

I know I'll make a whip finisher. That took about a half hour so let's break out the welder and make a tying vise for my buddy who comes to my house to explore fly tying but has yet to commit to tying flies.

It holds hooks very well. The whip finisher works as good as any other whip finishers I have used and now I wish I didn't spend money on two of them. That could have been an additional 20 bucks in my 401K. Dang it!

Last year I decided to make a lighter anchor. My 30lber is just getting to be a bitch as I get older. I decided on a Columbia river style anchor and went with just two tines for weight savings. Well its holding ability pretty much sucked so I added two more tines to it today. we will test it and if the hold still sucks I'll start adding a little more weight to it. I generally anchor in chunk rocks but my shad fishing area is like anchoring on a driveway. I may have to go back to the heavy bastard for shad.
