I told you these posts would be slightly Stream Of Consciousness.
Here's a picture of one of the brackets I welded to the RSJ in the roof to help support our new water tank. I was pretty pleased with how my welding turned out. It is surprising how much easier it is to weld 6mm steel to stuff than it is to weld the stupid 2mm thick galvanised brackets that are our wall supports. If I'd've realised at the beginning I probably would have done the whole lot with chunks of angle with holes drilled rather than flimsy shop-bought brackets. Next time.
