    Update later this weekend... For now, I am very excited to bring you my latest addition;
    A gas/gasless MIG welder! 110VAC, it will weld lighter steels, stainless steel, and aluminums. Can be used with Argon, CO2, and combinations of the 2.






    I am so stoked to have this and can't wait to fire it up!

    OK, so not quite the update I wanted to post. I will probably post another in the next few days...
    I sanded and drilled holes for feet to be mounted;


    Welded nuts on, Feet screwed in.



    I also did some more bone grinding;




    Will provide a picture of how this fits later. Also, ignore the chips on the counter. wtf.

    Took a large gear and cut it down;

    Another fine mess I've gotten myself into.


    This took about 3 hours with an angle grinder. How much do my neighbours love me?
    This is the middle piece;


    And after some quality time with ye olde bench grinder;


    This will go by a femur, you'll see later.

    While cutting the gear, I included my finger in there. The picture of the aftermath got deleted, but maybe that's a good thing. At any rate, you've heard of modders mesh?


    Modders bandage

    Gear welded on.



    Strong as hell.


    Shell almost all the way complete;



    Made a "floor"



    Couldn't reach here to drill holes for rivets,


    So I used the existing holes in the front, for the rivets that hold the shell on.


    It looks a little rougher than I would like, but this part will never be seen.

    The bottom. This part looks better.



    Gratuitous pics;

    Heheh, looks good. And nice bandage. I've always been partial to duck-tape and a paper towel. ..when I can't find superglue, that it..

    Small update.
    Started gluing some of the bones in place. I'm both excited and nervous about this. I'm worried I might end up regretting it. But, This area will need sanding and painting anyways, soo...




    Eventually it will get blended together.
    Leg being glued tonight.

    (That's not hanging, btw.... It's just the zipties)

    Also, mounted the first elctronic compenents;
    A terminal block, mounted underneath so I can actually get to it lol.


    Location for the dimmer switch. No knob, it will be just like that. So I can control the brightness of the led's.


    Two pusbutton switches. One for led's, one for smoke.




    That's all for now!
