I finally took the plunge and bought a welder and am trying to teach myself how to weld. Here's the results of my first attempts at welding up a pneumatic pop up. These will be combined into my Pirate display with an audio track and run by a Picaxe controller.

Hey, where's the closeup of the actual welds?:)

Must have done a good job, because nothing went flying off when you fired up the pirate prop.

Steve,

Watching the video again I did take note of your weld joints...or the lack of visibility of them. They look real nice. Obviously I'm a mess, because I know my joints don't come anywhere close to that. Now I've seen both you and yardhaunter5 -- two welding newbs -- churn out perfect looking welds, so I gotta ask myself what am I doing wrong?

Regardless though, these two props look as though they'll be great additions to your haunt. I've gone an ordered my plans now too so I can try my hand at building one of these 2-bar lifters.

Nice job halstaff. It doesn't appear that you had any problems with picking up that skill.

Looks good. I guess you passed the first test and the welds held. :)

Looks great Now that your welding you will find you can build so much more and improvise. Good luck.
