  • Frame for Steinway Piano

    This project to was to build two Aluminum bases for dehumidifiers, to go under two Steinway grand pianos, while the pianos are in storage for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. I am more comfortable with TIG welding Aluminum so, I used a spool gun with the Lincoln 210 MP welder to get some more MIG experience on Aluminum. My friend John did half of the welds and I did the other half. We welded 3/16” gussets to the 1/8” wall tubing The default settings on the 210 MP for 1/8” worked great.
