HOW TO BUILD A FIRE PIT
Sean Jordan (@atomic_fab) helps us get ready for the colder months by building a fire pit, using a CIGWELD 175i+. It’s perfect for the home backyard and easier to build than you think!
Back in October 2012, Greg Holster was approached by New Zealand’s ‘The Shed” Magazine to write up a DIY Article. Greg shows you how to use an old expended gas cylinder and turn it into a Backyard Brazier of wonder. With a little bit of plasma cutting with a Thermal Dynamics 35A, and MIG trickery on the CIGWELD Transmig 250i, you too can get your backyard all toasty warm in less than a day’s work. A great project to get your older kids involved too!
