Peach Basket

Since the gear legs were fitted in place, it was time to weld the peach basket. First step was to cut some 7/16 in. steel strips on the bandsaw.



Then bend them over a radius equal to the curve in the peach basket.



And weld them in place.



Also, the front of the peach basket was closed by heating...


...bending....


...and welding.



All in a days work. Next step is to weld the outer flange and the "u" shape on the inside.


More early next week.
Enjoy
Brian
