    Thanks guys. Its definitly taking shape and moving quickly now.

    Offset will be notmal pit satin black. The trailer and storage sides will be the same viper red as the cabinet smoker.

    I also have a few other "extras" up my sleeves im gonna try and add to it but ya'll have to wait to see them haha.

  3. It's really coming together nicely! How thick is metal you are working with?

    How do you like working with and having that 3/8" pipe? That's all I've been able to find but I'm not sure I want to go that route

    same as using 1/4 just a little stiffer on the door adjustments but not bad. i used my floor jack and a chain and they went right back. turn the heat up on the welder to weld the caps and stack and press on. 
     
  7. What kind of welder are you using?

    Miller 180 auto mig with gas.
     
  9. This morning I almost just got a miller 350p , but someone snagged it a few minutes before me,

    Did just get a Lincoln dc600 and a ln7 in good shape,...really was excited about the 350p though, it had pulse on pulse

    Thanks Sean!

    RW - id really like to get a tig machine but they r so pricey.
     
  12. Yeah, these were free, that's why I was so exited. I've been using a Lincoln 180t for light fab work, good unit, but worry about running it too hard. My plan was to put .25 on the 180t, set up the 350 for aluminum work and ..030, put .045 on the dc400, and set up the dc600 with 1/16 wire for heavy plate. Then I'd be set up nice.
     
  13. How did you get free machines ?

    well, got the firebox finished. that means time for a fire and see what tweaks and moves and binds and what i'll have to adjust on haha. 

    have tomorrow off so i'll get up the morning and start a fire in it and then start skinning my dry storage box/sink. gett'n down to the nitty gritty now.
