    Arch enemy

    Anyone able to point me in the direction of some arches and surrounding few inches as mine are beyond belief, and repair.

    Ok. Thanks Al. I'll get to learning that skill. I wish I could download these skills like on the Matrix!

    Get the flat bit welded in first, then use cardboard to get your shape and butt weld in sections on the curved bits and just grind down the welds after

    Something along the lines of these
