How I Did It Project: Wild Horse Sculpture
Submitted by: Mike Kasun
This wild horse sculpture was created by Mike for one of his clients in Colorado. It is made from a mixture of mild steel and stainless steel and stands 5 feet tall. The stone weighs 500 lbs.
Mike used a Lincoln Electric POWER MIG® 180 Dual
wire feeder welder on the project. He reports that "the welder was amazing!"
In additional to its normal use, Mike also utilized the welder to do the stitching effect on the horse, giving it a more sophisticated look (click on the close-up image of the horse's head to see the detail).
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
Please attach JPG or GIF photos to your email. Also, don't forget to tell us the story - what you built, how you built it and what Lincoln Electric products you used!
