Welded up the steel truck frame. 1-1/2" steel angle welded to 2" steel C-channel, 36 inches long. I need to cut the trucks to length, but the welding was the hard part. The rest is easy, though tedious.
My welding is getting better. The fact that I was welding thicker steel this time helped, I'm sure-- but the welds made it through the steel about halfway which is perfect. Not perfect welds by a long shot, but better.

Ironically, it's a difficult read, and tends to make me feel like I an a total doofus when it comes to telling a damn story. On the other hand, I think it stands a good chance of driving me to improve the stuff that I have already written.

Sleepy now. May nap. After I put away the groceries.
