Just want to bring this thread back up ... So many good vibes in here.

My only time ever making something from nothing out of pure boredom

I used to build stuff all the time as a kid growing up, dad had the largest pile of old farm equipment parts. I used to dig through it and build animals such out of it and sell them off for cash or give them away as xmas presents. Pretty neat what would start looking back at you from that pile when you stared at it long enough. Sadly, dad sold most of it to a junker when I moved out.

Looks good man, I see stuff like that all the time at swap meets around here, they go for pretty pennies for what you have in them. ;)

I built this outta some old junk acetylene reg parts. The regulators have some neat little gears and springs much like a watch, so I thought they were cool =)

And I figured id try my hand at tig brazing with silicone bronze filler on brass/copper/stainless welding. It worked out ok.

Found this in my old closet at my dad's house. Made it out of some of my old (passing) weld test straps and pipe coupons in welding school.

Fuck You.
How could you find this? This forum is a deep abyss for short threads, especially open forum since they got taken off the home page updates when the original thread of all threads got deleted. It has affected traffic on the whole site. Open forum sometimes keeps the shenanigans out of build threads too. When it doesn't show up in the main board way less people visit.
