Steel, if you want it done right you gotta put in the time

So today was a very long day. my friend Norm is a Rock star, and fellow Capricorn! I had forgotten this little fact until he reminded me mid day. That probably helped make today a good day. I had some serious misconceptions about welding and the time it takes to really get stuff set up right. I do not have these issues any more. After a 14 hour day, I am certain it takes time to make things right. I am also certain my worktable is far from level, so lets all give thanks to Shims! In addition, I now know how to weld, though sadly, not very well. I did complete a small number of the actual beads on my structure, but Norm did 99{2bcc608746b8120fea6644f9ae3522f13f10aa6a77c573f716eef1394619f5d9} of the work. I think I was a good assistant today, fetching tools, lighters, beers, Burritos, you know, the essentials.

The Cage is built. The Slab’s platform is built. Now we have just a little bit more fabrication to complete, and the final pieces can be assembled and welded/bolted into place. I may have to invest in a Sawsall, and finish doing the cutting needed to put it all together. Its all figured out and I think we’re on a good path. IF this works, We’re golden. If not, well i may be doing some cement patchwork in the near future. I think it will, and I think Mobile pizza is near!

here’s a few photos of todays work.
