Hey yall, hope everyone's having a good weekend...
This is what I've been up to, making some more progress on the
burninator. Its still a really fun project, and the best part is, its
actually starting to look like a BBQ!! WooHoo!!
I also just bought myself a new camera... I'd been using a Canon
HF R10 since December of 2010, but I damaged the lens in a
welding shot, and went and bought its modern version, the
Canon HF R300 and now I'm using it. Really like it... Just thought
I'd throw that in because sometimes people ask what kind of
camera I run. Just a $249 cheapie :)
Anyway, heres parts 4 and 5, Im off to the garage to work on
part 6!! Coming right along... Enjoy the videos everyone

Curious why you put the trim around the fire box and why you didn't use your MIG welder, especially on the big gap? 6010 overhead is NOT fun. I would have either made the BBQ portion first and put the undercarriage on after or tried to reposition the whole thing so I didn't have to weld overhead. It looks like if you had an engine crane, you could have stood the whole thing up on the fire box to make welding it easier. That's why big shops spend thousands on welding positioners or move large pieces into the flat or horizontal position. It saves a lot of time and makes it easier for the welders to do their best work. I built a lot of big skids and we would stand them on their side for horizontal welding and then flip upside down so we didn't have to weld them overhead. It saved a lot time and BURNS.

Hmmm, good question. I feel like I generally do better welding up a gap with some 6010/1 over mig, I can do the mig, but I prefer SMAW...
Yeah, doing it overhead wasnt my favorite thing in the world but honestly it wasnt bad, especially because I probably only did like 16" or so...
Hmmmm, its something to think of. Ive got a few things lined up here, then I plan to build my own engine lift, just for the heck of it. Figure it'll be a fun project, and I can make mine a little bigger than the store bought ones. Thanks for watching
