Welding & Fabricating



Silk Screen Machine

Today I fabricated a frame for use with a silk screen transfer machine.  I made it with 3/4" aluminum square tubing.  My first step was to cut the pieces for all four sides at a 45° angle.  Then all the pieces were beveled to give a better welding zone.  The pieces were then welded making a 26" x 22" frame.  A small piece of metal was welded on one side to give it a thicker portion for a vacuum valve to be installed.  That spot needed a 7/16" hole drilled in it and I tapped it with a 1/4" npt tap.  My final step was to grind all the welds down to make it a nice flat surface to sit on.  Pretty easy.
