Last Saturday I held a 'Family Glass blowing day' to celebrate my farewell to glasswork.....
Glass casting with ladle and ball into sand moulds, something my family knew I did but never had seen.
Picture shows the furnace opening and if you look close you can see a second life for a bit of a cilinderhead !

More heat.
repaired the '40 head and cilinder, feeling rather smug with it.
Went very well after a tip from Rob to use mig welding instead of cast iron stick welding.

You made a tidy job of that Vincent. Big MIG welder? The inside of the repaired bolt hole looks nice too. Lots of time with the dremel?
cheers

Thanks!
Found out that using a low wire speed compared to the input (7) was best.
On my Hobart like this :
Normally I have the wire speed within where the white line is

The F.J.Edwards wheeling machine.
coming along nicely, I just looooove these old fashioned cast iron machines.
Even after 20 odd years outside it's possible to get it apart !
a few pictures from the progress.

Mr. Edwards is back on it's feet now.
I made a base for it to be able to move it around with a pallet truck.
Waiting for the bolts&nuts to return from the platers .
I admit, nicklel plating those is a bit over the top.... ;)
