I was making a frame for "fly wings" for a Halloween costume. The way I made them was welding three 3/32" sticks of ER70S3 into a 9 foot piece, then making a figure 8 from them. The figure 8 would look like a fly wing horizontally, with a stocking over it.
The short of it is that it worked after some frustrations, related to my ability to hold them and weld them at the same time as those springy rods were under tension.
I would like to ask what sorts of holding fixtures do you guys use, beyond C clamps and regular Vise-Grips. After yesterday's experience, I would like to buy or make some more. I would prefer an emphasis on make, such as some additions to vise-grips etc.i i
