Left Peach Basket

Worked on the left peach basket today. First thing I did was heat the front flange, bend it and weld it shut.

Then the 7/16 in wide steel strip were cut from the 1/16 in sheet and bent around a 1 1/2 in. tube. Everything was tacked in place before welding.

Here's the welded flange. Next step is to grind the welds smooth.

Hi Michael,

Yes, everything is OK with me. I appreciate your concern!

I am fortunate enough to fly a Gulfstream V for a living and I just got back from an 8 day trip to France. The trip was great, but 8 days is a long time to be away from the wife and kids....and the Jenny too.

Thanks again for thinking about me. Feel free to e-mail anytime
