post number 17
I had to cut wedges all along both radiuses to allow for shrinking. I cut the slots to outside diameter of the scribed line, and they ended up being to short.
Here is a pic of the front after the slots are all welded up and filed smooth. This is a really good job.
Here is the cover on the buck. I have no previous experience with this type of work, and I am very happy with how my first attempt turned out.
Check it out! I have to weld a strip all along the edge to get the proper height. I am going to do the tool box for my next sheet metal project! Wish me luck!
