With the advent of the internet and social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, the world has become a smaller and more connected place. There has even been a substantial decrease in the amount of written correspondence being sent through post offices all over the globe nowadays, due to the proliferation of emailing, texting and online instant messaging. But for those living thousands of miles apart from members of their family, or anyone with friends living in different countries, it's typically a little different. A small handwritten letter or a lovingly assembled care package will instantly make the heart sing and your mood surge with inner contentment while emitting a happy exterior glow.
I am somewhat embarrassed to show my efforts so far but I will in a separate post as I hone my skills. But for now I will do a assessment of this technique. So let me start with the pros of arc welding. One is it is less expensive for equipment than MIG and TIG welding. Secondly, the heat is instantaneous and would be excellent for tack welding armatures and metal furniture that you can finish with oxyacetylene. Thirdly, because you are not warming up the work with a flame, the heat is highly focused and warpage is greatly reduced. Finally, this particular welder I have is very light weight and there are no gas gauges to watch over.
You have just finished trimming and rubbing thirty dollars worth of brisket. You wrap that baby up and slide it into the fridge to mellow overnight. You then head off to bed and sleep peacefully, dreaming of that mouth-watering chunk of heaven. Morning comes, and after looking over the newest Harbor Freight catalog while drinking a cup of coffee, you decide to get started on the fire. Without warning, panic strikes. Should I use all wood, or should I use charcoal too? How much wood? How much charcoal? You are now adrift on the sea of indecision.
We are concerned with the double face cardboard because of its availability. Occasionally building materials such as sheetrock mud, lacquer, and cement will splash onto the sheets of cardboard and dry while in the trash. Most substances will come off with a simple brush of the hand or with a stiff broom. You can remove more stubborn areas with a square nosed shovel, inverted so the underside of the scoop is up. This will prevent the shovel from digging into the corrugation.
What you want to achieve is a small, glowing fire in the fire box. That fire should last, unattended, for 45-60 minutes, and the temperature should remain steady. During this 45-60 minute burn, you should preheat one or two sticks of wood on top of the fire box. This preheating will help the wood burn faster and produce less thick, white smoke (more on smoke color in a bit). When you add a stick of wood to the fire box, open the intake about halfway. This will give your fire a little breath of air. When the preheated stick catches fire, close the air intake back down to about one quarter.
If an air compressor is out of the question, then may I suggest a 20-gallon shop-vac. Oh, don't look at me like that. I am so serious. Men might not know why, but they really need one. You can tell when you take them into that aisle at Home Depot. They stop and look longingly at it with a half smile. It may not get used weekly, but then you just might be surprised. A shop-vac may give him a reason to clean out the vehicles.
