This is a great idea that I've not seen, but could be very helpful in finishing a weld, if that is what it's for? What is the process to keep seeing that you are not over shaping, do you keep reapplying the bluing? maybe you could explain in some detail for those of us less knowledgeable. Home hobbyist.

Thanks Chris,

The orange magnets are just a magnet pushed inside a 3D printed holder that I came up with nothing special.
The magnets came from aussiemagnets.com.au.


You are correct Chris the blue (marking blue) is to keep an eye on the highs and lows as I am planishing and filing the weld and heat affected zone and yes I keep reapplying the blue as I go.
I will try to put together how I go about finishing a weld at some stage, I think some one would have covered the process on this site some where.
Chris I am only a home hobbyist myself I just practice practice and more practice .

The double-up beadroll move is fun!

Love those profile dies and the serious recip machine giving them squish.
You got the top ironed and filed out nice, and then the new panel flowed right on in....back side is clean too - (very nice not to see pick marks and harsh tool marks back side ).

Gold Star work, Scott, and great to see the steps so clearly documented.
Thanks Kent
That means a lot coming from you.

The "plaster" profile is just body filler.

Kent what do you mean by "pin clamps"?

Yeah the welding table is heaven but definitely not needed to get the job done.

Thinking on the section below the window that you raised, are your vertical lines parallel, or do they taper in at the top?


Just thinking if I were to duplicate your task, would a taper make up for the loss of material from the cutting process ????
