CHAPTER 15

 

Cube

This project is going to further your practice with the metal–inert gas (MIG) welder and plasma cutter. If no plasma cutter is available, you can use an oxygen-acetylene torch. The idea here is to learn some basic layout techniques with steel and removed material in certain areas so that you are able to bend them easily. Welding in this project is minimal, but you’ll get great practice with the torch and see how workable steel is when designed properly. Figure 15.1 shows a completed bent and welded cube.
