Welding on a Lattice Cell Tower

The rusted looking areas are the locations we need to weld

This is the base of one of the legs of a three legged tower we worked on in May, 2012.  This tower is in Fortuna, CA just south of Eureka.  The weather was very nice for working when I was there, overcast and cool.  However, when Dan was there they couldn’t work one of the days due to rain and wind.  All the welding was done using flux core wire, E70T-8.

Aluminum Bar Stool Repair

A local high end outdoor living retail store contacted us about repairing a piece of furniture they sold a couple of years ago.  The manufacture would not warranty the piece any more.

Aluminum bar stool pieces

The aluminum bar stool came to us in four pieces.

Aluminum Bar Stool in one piece

We were able to put it back together for less then half the cost of a new piece.

This opened the door to a new customer, the outdoor furniture store has since sent us a couple of other small aluminum repair projects.  This is the way we grow, satisfying one customer at a time.

Cell Tower Modification in Modesto

On this cell tower we added 12 gussets to the base plate of the tower and reinforced the port holes.

This was the easy side to get to

The gussets are about 6″ wide at the base and approximately 14″ tall.

I had to make like a mole to get in this hole

Sometimes half the battle is getting to where you need to be and then to see the joint that needs to be welded.

 

Trash Enclosure Gate Repair

They say a picture is worth 1000 words so, I don’t think I need to add much to it.

We took the damaged gates and disposed of them at the metal recycler.

These replacement gates were fabricated in our shop then installed.
