post number 38

I welded up my first prototype gas tank. I am not very pleased with it, but it is still really cool to see it in the frame!!! I learned a lot about what not to do as far as bending the blanks. The next one will surely be better! I am glad that I ordered twenty blanks lol

Here are the pliers that I made to bend the sides. They work well and clamp the metal evenly, one thing that i did not for see happening was the metal next to the bend distorting. I am learning so much about metal work with this project, I love my job!
