One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
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.
Mail Order - This is the oldest division of this company. This division was established when the company acquired several mail order companies in the tool and equipment enterprise. The mail order began with employees sending catalogues to random addresses. The outcome of this experiment was overwhelming, the order began to flood and the company then introduced its very first mail order catalogue. At present, customers can purchase through the catalogue or through the company's official website.
Now that you have the place and the tools you will need to get some electronics to tear down. There are several different ways to approach this so we will review them below. One of the most powerful tools that I have found is a simple form letter that is sent to various companies in my area. I sat down with my wife and created this letter outlining what our company does and how it would benefit the companies that we were contacting. The response is simply amazing.
First of all, you can educate yourself about the alternative methods of providing power to your home during an outage. While purchasing an emergency backup portable generator is what most people think of doing, many people either don't have the $500 to $800 to lay out for that purchase. In addition, storing gasoline may not be an option, especially if you live in the city and have a small lot, or worse yet, if you live in an apartment.
I am not sure what scale architectural models are build to, but 1:200 does not equate to inches very well. 1/48th works out to 1/4-inch equals 1 foot, and 1/72 equal 1/6 to one foot. The scale should be divisible by 12 (i.e. 1/144th scale would be 144 divided by 12 which gives 1/12 of an inch equals one foot). You could always go with 1/192 (1/16 of an inch equals one foot), which is a popular scale for ship models. Another choice would be use metric where 1/200th would work fine.
