Welding - without the arc flash

Saturday, June 13, 2015 by MC

Still peening the stay bolts... we needed a tool to hold the flexible ball-nuts from turning when we peen over the bolt. Mark made a tool to fit but it would not reach those nuts that set deep in the sockets (too much innuendo here) so we decided to weld on dogs to the tabs to reach the slots. Tom got some good shots of John with the TIG welder.
