The jet pack studio chair is now in progress. I popped a sheet of 1/8" steel on the plasma this morning and set the machine in motion. I waited for the first to cut and then started work at the welding table.
The edge pieces for the curvy web legs were hand formed from 1.5" x 0.125" mild steel. These pieces were cut a few inches long, formed and then tacked into place. I then used the MIG to throw a quick bead on each side. Once they had cooled I trimmed off the excess.
Once I had all five sub structures done I welded them to the centre pipe.
I the cut a couple of large pieces with right sized holes to slide in the chair cylinder. As quick as that the rolling chassis for the chair was complete. Next up is the back frame assembly for the twin fuel tanks and the jet motor mounts. Once they are complete the hand sculpting will commence which will give the chair a whole lot more character. Stay tuned...
