How pink do you like your wheels?  :lol:

Considering the current state of them (flaking, corrosion) pink would be an improvement :lol:

Yayyy it’s Friday :thumbs: 

 

Still at it on the powder coat oven, I decided to go the extra mile on the rack for hanging the items being powder coated, I could have just put a metal rack in or just a couple of bars but where is the fun in that?

Instead I got some box

Marked it up

Cut it out a

And the obligatory clean up :yawn:

Then I had to drag the lathe off the wall :lol:

 

5.JPG.d38a3f4a3b1a43dd258e2766ddbef4c3.JPG

 

Just to make these

Then some plates

 

7.JPG.d4d7a0d71bbc106b5e3ba04917c6da1b.JPG

 

Lined up and tac welded on

 

8.JPG.ed9f4352a6071a8ca5c97225fb1f4cf8.JPG

 

Made these

And welded them on

 

9.JPG.913dba916f48e4a959476e85286e58c1.JPG

 

Some more box

 

10.JPG.deea0d7e738fbc590e9382cbe5fe50e3.JPG

 

And some half inch bar

 

11.JPG.742b6fb796fc88034b38e6752be6c81e.JPG

 

All joined together to make a shelf

 

12.JPG.ee685d90bc43a978015533bdcc6e0aa7.JPG

 

That rolls out :thumbs:

 

13.JPG.01b9ccf0034dda495fe239061aab9bbe.JPG

 

Here are the rollers, I need to add a stop so it can’t fall out :scare:

 

14.JPG.4b8fded1246929bdb4afa6905896bb90.JPG

 

I added a second set of plates and they bolt through the inner skin

 

15.JPG.9fda700bc7876d8a65b9611e60778bd2.JPG

 

I will weld these outer plates to the frame and weld the nuts on so they become captive so the shelf can be removed and it is not just held up by the inner skin :)

 

Stay safe, have a great weekend I should have an update on Monday :thumbs:

I know, I know, Thing is I now I have gone the powder coat route I need the oven done before I can crack on with The Bug but I will post the coplete build when I get to it, should be starting back on that in the next week or so, depends how long it takes to finish the Oven and put the lathe back together, the good news is that after The Bug the next two projects are vehicle :thumbs:

Morning all. Hope everyone had a good weekend :)

 

So I got a bit done on the oven, Hoping to get these side projects cleared over the next two weeks and then get back to some work on the vehicles, The Bug first though as I’d like to have that in one piece and maybe even get some use out of it in the summer!

 

The mad fire foam has dried :lol:

 

1.JPG.7da22bfa66f642afbe0221d5e6cf08ea.JPG

 

So I trimmed that down and test fitted the window frame,

On the small door

 

3.JPG.6ba6fc266b3ea802c56bd3cc4dec0e07.JPG

 

The foam had a big hole in it right where it is most needed, not sure why, maybe it’s because the foam is out of date :lol:

I’ll stick some more in when I do the last lot on the back.

I got part of the old SMEG

 

5.JPG.03086d51fa8975f0d1da1c029033db10.JPG

 

Cut some strips and ran them through the rollers to make loops

 

6.JPG.5face4601543a009dbc4acd21082057e.JPG

 

Then welded them onto Back plates

 

7.JPG.1e94f40341f1554a6808659204d0240d.JPG

 

This was combined with a cut down box section to create mounts for the elements that stand 10 to 15mm off the inside skin of the oven

 

8.JPG.ca2fce06291b1b2bb1e47d3ccc529162.JPG

 

Then an old bit of pipe was cut into lengths

 

9.JPG.80291a31c3e2b29b17b71b97eb47f60c.JPG

 

Some holes drilled

 

10.JPG.ef56f9f7cc487ae11b9a726c6f2446c0.JPG

 

A bit of tube cut to length

 

11.JPG.4356f996559a2a992cb5b3d34c37a22d.JPG

 

Holes drilled in the oven

 

12.JPG.541b1de1d31ead9659181f912f04c3b1.JPG

 

Then weld it all together

 

13.JPG.9d4ac22bfda57e3edd6a8679dae95414.JPG

 

These are the light fittings and the tube is for the wiring

 

14.JPG.4dab414c7340629a37c03e38e5359bd5.JPG

 

The oven seemed very happy with my work!

I may have been on my own in the Zed Shed to long, WILSON!!!!!!………………………………

:lol::lol::lol:

 

I then added some more box section behind the rest of the areas an element will go through

 

17.JPG.e74e27f0fc8bac889c4fb3147ff9d4a8.JPG

 

The idea is to create some insulation area behind the elements as on the original ovent they just bolt them to the outside no insulation at all in places

 

16.JPG.e37517f6cfa2e368c285554b04d5ae43.JPG

 

 

I’m trying to increase efficiency and it makes the thin steel stronger in the stressed areas, to that end I used my last bottle of fire foam

 

18.JPG.e238ec7d03ce1883f0dbb164be1ecd48.JPG

 

After that had dried I trimed it all up

 

19.JPG.70c21ec877a5aa97173d558569037746.JPG

 

Added some insulation

 

20.JPG.562fc59865250a9ce3ec1f7e89d67b4b.JPG

 

Then riveted the back on

 

21.JPG.d83192e1f2cbb6167a63e223f86c83c6.JPG

 

Then I opened all the access holes for the electrics.

 

22.JPG.b4f8462cf5e1d3ebbdd7558895961597.JPG

 

The back looks like this now

Wilson? :shrug:
