To start with I was using the Longevity MIGWeld 140 for this welding project. I recommend this welder for beginners because it’s good and very affordable.
I started off with a piece of 24 gauge flat bar. I ground down the mill scale and cut the corner off with a cut off wheel to give it a nice design. I kept the ends flat.
I then cut 3 pieces of round bar (2 five inch pieces, 1 6 inch piece). I took the grinder and narrowed down the ends of the round bar.
I put each piece of the round bar into my bending jig and made a bend.
I just inserted the round bar into the jig and bent it using a piece of pipe.
I measured directly in the middle of the workpiece to attach the 6″ hook.
I’m using a welding magnet to hold vertical so I can get it tack welded on.
I’m doing the same for the other 2 pieces.
I cut some holes with the cutting torch so I can attach it to the wall.
See, I told you it was a simple project. Now all it needs is paint and the wife will let me hang it. 🙂
If you’re a beginner looking to weld projects for fun, this might be a good place to start.
