I stumbled across this video, and was intrigued by this guy's method of butt welding a patch panel in. I can't wait to find something to try it on. It is too simple, and makes perfect sense.
I'm glad I watched it.

Very interesting technique.
My only question is, where in the world is Fritzee from, and where has he lived recently to have developed that amalgamation of accents?
I grew up in Michigan, but have lived in Virginia for 40 years, so of course everyone thinks I am from Oklahoma.

I'm thinking Swiss extraction. There's a well know musher, Martin Buser, up here that sounds a bit like him. Martin is originally from Switzerland.

Interesting concept.

Great video. Thanks for sharing it, 4100. Never saw that before. Assuming he's using the 'close your eyes' welding helmet. Very comfortable...

My guess is Irish. With a little Scots. Then transplanted to Ontario.

Great video. I am a fairly new welder and that has been my biggest fear. Getting an accurate cutout of the patch I am trying to install.

The other way to do it is scribe the outline, trim a little big, fit, trim, fit, trim, etc. Doing it that way, you can get a near zero gap. But it's a tedious process.

Newfoundland. Never heard that accent before. It does seem to have a little bit of the Maine accent to it. Just a bit though.

I like his methods. It makes it less scary to making panels for our rusty trucks.
