Quite the opposite, I had ZERO welding experiance but am a amateur woodworker and work in a field with mechanical items for the last 30 plus years.
It was a great project do not let these intimidate you, as if I can do it. anyone can with the tools.
was going to roast today but its 19 degrees and I do not want to do it indoors.
I did clean it up and will post pics later today on the final look.

Thanks again for all you help and support.

Bill

I watched the video.  Fantastic work.  You saved yourself a bundle, big time.

Nice Stuff..
Stainless Steel is the easiest metal to weld..
It is so clean and pure it just melts together..
Aluminum maybe the hardest..

I showed my wife your video. Looks like a great roaster! Nice work!

I am just getting in my first Hottop B roaster - can't wait to start the journey!
