    I would have to wait for boxes to be welded in between steps.

    Glued first then Todd would lay a bead with a hot air welder thing that used the rod. Along the deck around the front where it had to be filed smooth. Theres a feet of rod on the longer boxes.

    Those little micro furrows where the weld meets the deck and sidewall are made by the hot tip of the welder running on the plastic.
    you can see the tip with the scoop lip thing top right. https://www.amazon.com/Beyondlife-Pl...SIN=B07CR9M9N6 it makes those little lines that look like glue.

    A hot abs worm following. Thats a nice bead. Todd was welding good that day Just saw talked to him a few days ago..I'll tell him we were complimenting his welding.

    I've given this tip before two. The inside of the trap has it's seams sealed with "goober" instead of a weld.

    Goober is a mix of acetone and abs shavings... It's a pour until it's right formula..probably close to a 50/50 mix.

    probably the best weld/joint fixer beefer upper for any Black Boxes out there.

    Ok, that's how the weld rods work. Got it. I like the shaving mix idea. That sounds doable! Tilt the unit dmso the glue lays in the corner, add mix! I may need to practice once or twice!
    Yes, very nice weld now that I know what that is! Tell Tod Thanks! Love my 24" Sniper!

    I ended up trying some JB Weld just because I have it in the cupboard and gave it a test run to the Skyomish. It held up fine for the first test, I guess I'll see how long it lasts before trying something more substantial.

    Wife and I have been going out fairly consistently, mostly the Nooksack because it's close. Slowly filling the vial, but nothing too exciting so haven't been sharing any pictures. We both just recently retired and have more time now so we've traveled a bit farther to the Skykomish near Index this fall and for just test sluicing and poking around we're pretty excited. Just running the GGT at a new location and just exploring one day we totaled .24 gram! Now have to figure out how to get our Piglet there! I think I need to start picking ET1955's brain a little bit more.
