Just a little F1 metal work

Well I started doing some metal replacement on the F1. 4 months ago I bought a cheap english wheel and a sheet of 18 ga steel and just turned my sons loose to learn it. I fiqured i was too old to amount to any greatness on it but they could have fun with

it. Well here are some results.

Looks good. I had good luck with these metal clamps. They create a 1/16 margin making it easy to MIG. Tacked inbetween and welded up a little at a time hammering the welds and going slow enough to let the metal cool down. Another first for me too.
Have fun!

Looks good. I'm glad to see someone getting their children involved in this "hobby".

I think the secret is to teach sometimes and play dumb sometimes so they can try to out shine you. The day they made some great fittings pieces i came home to 2 excited boys that just about carried me to the garage.
