    Default Weld on bucket hooks (again)

    LD1 asked me some time ago when I was going to weld some hooks on my Kioti bucket. I haven't done it mainly because when I needed hooks I just take adavantage of the SSQA and change out the bucket to my second bucket and old kubota bucket I converted to SSQA and it has lots of hooks on it. But when I killed a deer last saturday I needed to hang it and of course the wrong bucket was on the tractor, so I had to change it out.. No big deal, but I decided to "get a round tuit"

    Here you can see the cleaning of the existing factory pads of paint, then setting the weld on hooks on with a magnet, a tack on opposite ends of each side with 7014 3/32 then weld with 1/8 7018 and slap on some Kutota gray paint.. (don't knock it, it matches and I have it). welder is Everlast PA160 DC welder Tackup at 110 amps and weld at 125. I haven't stick welded in quite a while..(that is my excuse and I am sticking to it)-img_20121117_162424_854-jpg-img_20121117_162438_547-jpg-img_20121117_164305_653-jpg-img_20121117_165303_772-jpg-img_20121117_165314_192-jpg-img_20121117_170314_242-jpg-img_20121117_165336_859-jpg
