    I have a bit of an issue

    I have a bit of an issue with this competition of winning the Heat Welding competition as in the rules to enter, number 5, one has to be a resident of the US
    Everybody knows that New Zealand has the best heat welding guys in the world living here
    I suppose we have to give the US layers a chance to win, that's why we aren't allowed to enter :D:D:D
    Also its a pity as I don't get any welding jobs which are worth taking a photo of :)

    That's probably because the welding you do isn't worth taking photos of. ;);):p:p
    Why is that, don't you know that Kiwi's are just misplaced people from the US.

    Jon, you should be happy we even let you in the front door. You know how we are. ;)

    Yeah but it cost us US$ 14 each to get that visa so your government would let us arrive in The States so we could come and see you guys at Surfaces :)

    Grant H I'd rather be patting my dog.

    Also being from the little down under under the big down under I'm looking forward to see some of these photos.

    What are "Artistic" welds ? Where are they ? Are they on jobs or "Craft" type projects ?.

    Most of my welding is "Practical", hardly photo worthy. Some technically tricky/awkward but not noteworthy.

    The closest ones would have been a 20m sinuous one on a kindy reno years ago. That was mainly "Purdy" because of the contrasting vinyl colors though. The other at a local private hospital. Double swinging doors in a corridor were causing problems so I convinced them to let me do a "ECG" look-a-like join in the door way to delineate the "In/Out" directions on the floor. Simple but appropriately medical :D

    I don't weld so can I copy and paste photos I find? :)

    I think the rules answer that question. Two and four specifically. ;)

    Sorry about the U.S. rules guys! You're free to post pictures for us to admire though.

    To get this started, we'll be posting pictures emailed to us.

    What do you guys think?

    I do not have a heat weld job coming up this month so can I go back to a few past jobs and get photo's to send in?
  11. Jim McClain

    Jim McClain Owner/Founder Administrator

    Yes, Roland, the rules were created to allow the most possible entries. The pictures do not have to be of current jobs. Since the length of time for this contest is so short, it wouldn't be to anyone's advantage to limit to pictures of jobs during the contest. So, if you (or anyone) has pics of welding from earlier this year or even last year, they count as an entry.

    Hope I'm not speaking out of turn here - this is HeatWeldingPro's contest and he has final say. That is how I understood the rules though.

    That is absolutely right. You can post as many pictures as you would like, even if they are from past jobs. We want to see your work.

    ill throw out a few (my money is on forbo king unless he doesn't enter) but since i'm not elligable, my permission must be approved by me to use these pics elsewhere. if you look close, my mozart should have been replaced.

    First I'll start with the most recent job since I have the most pictures of it. It was at WVU in Morgan town west Virginia the date was April 30th this one was particularly a pain because the one flashed room had 13 outside corners that needed flashed and welded. 2014

    uploadfromtaptalk1399384628029.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1399384673382.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1399384703760.jpg

    This picture is from pinnacle health. A hospital in Harrisburg PA. The arc was hand done with 2 sheets of luon cut at a pre determined sizes. Larger in the middle of the room and smaller toward the halls on either side. There where 5 different colors all meeting together in this small area. 4 welds all meeting in 1 intersection.


    This picture is at a VA hospital in Lancaster PA it is in an elevator lobby. All arcs and pieces hand cut. I took measurements off the wall and set my straight edge on end and followed the curve of the wall.


    I'm saving my last picture in case I get another weld job from now till the end of the contest.

    I wish I had all my pictures, but Hurricane Sandy wanted them more. I lost all my pictures/computers in the storm, along with 90% of my tools...LOL....So all I have is a few stragglers that are not that impressive...

    The green and yellow is Grand Central Station in NYC
    The White corners are at Mt Sinai Hospital
    The lt Beige is Coney Island Hospital(video of these corners too) The second picture is the corners in the video.
    I push up my vinyl cove cap so it doesn't burn it. The pictures are the finished product after trimming and smoothing.

    The Blue and White/Orange etc is The Empire State Building 7th floor

    I see some really sweet sheet goods installs but the photos ought to be focused on and highlighting the actual WELDS, no? Sure, the concept of an ideal weld makes them inconspicuous when done correctly from 6' and farther back. So we're not really seeing the welding.

    That means something of a reasonable CLOSE UP shot. You wouldn't need any high tech photographic equipment nor special skills. My camera cost me $40 used on Ebay. So here's the TYPE of camera work I want to see to highlight the special skills and technology of heat welding:
