    Question Looking 4 Welder.

    I'm planning on building my tank instead of ordering it as the size I want won't fir thru the door.[I know,I'm insane].
    I'm looking for someone who can either weld me a top and bottom frame out of angle iron or give me some advice on what to use and how. I can coat the metal so salt won't rust it. I think angle would be the most cost effective but it has to be perfectly square on the inside seems so that the glass fits tight. any help?

    Sounds like you need a bigger door....

    Welding a frame for glass would be very tricky...with exact dimensions needed...how big are we talkin?

    John,
    I used to be a welder that specialized in stainless steel and TIG welding on aluminum. I used to build the big shiny chromed tanks you see trucks pulling for milk and other such liquids. These tanks at times were pressurized so I also worked on pressure welding. This is all to say that I could easily construct the frame you need and that you could be confident that it would be done properly and solid, but I don't have any of the equipment to do it. ( how's that for dangling a carrot in front of you??!!!). If worse comes to worse, I know somewhere that could possibly do it for you, but I would have to ask them because it is the school where I learned to be a welder. I know they often take external projects.
