I need to talk to the one amongst us who is a welder by profession. I just forget who that is

    you'll likely get more responses at http://www.hobartwelders.com/mboard/index.php?

    it is my favorite forum. those guys have a very broad range of experiences. somehow things seem a little moer cut and dried over there. Plenty of feedback, usually very precise and accurate with little emotional debate.

    I'm wondering if you are trying to fix a stove? I can help you if you have any technical questions about repairing anything. I'm only 24 years old But I've been professionally welding since I was 16 and know alot about welding things that need repaired. An old boss once said I could weld a can to a bulls ass!

    It's actually not a stove repair, but it's a stove fabrication. I need to go over the design with someone who is a welder and compare their real life experience that what I've learned so far from my engineering professors.

    Corie,

    Back in my younger days, I was a certified welder. I welded for several years in the manufacturing plant. Then I was offered a position in the engineering department which I accepted. Been working in engineering department (New product development) as a Mechanical design Specialist for 21 years. I have designed and built a couple of wood burning stoves myself. If you have any CAD files of your design, let me know. I will be happy to look them over and try to answer any questions you may have.

    Terry

    PS: The CAD software I currently use is Solid Edge or UG, but I can convert from many other formats.

    That sounds good. Let me finish up some of the drawings in Solid Works and then I'll host them on the web and you can look at them when you get a chance.

    I'm just a hobby welder / stove modifier, but it would be cool to check out some plans. Cut me in if you don't mind! :)

    YES! It was you I was looking for- hah

    I haven't quite figured them out, but I'm at school right now. Let me put together some concise drawings tonight and insert the knowledge I have thus far and see if it stands up to what you've seen.

    Appreciate any help
