Welding the base

We are lucky to be working with a Stainless Steel welding expert at StephensMachine to get the base welded.The stability of the base is critical to the statue, and they have equipment beyond our basic welding equipment that gives us the desired result in both function and appearance.  Before the final weld, the piece is placed and spot welded to position it well.


Stainless Steel is particularly prone to warp when welded, so after welding, the entire base needed to be heated and then straightened to ensure that it was not warped. 

The end result looks great and we will be getting our hands on it soon, so we can continue the finishing process along with all the other gears already underway.
