JFLF Awards Give Young Fabricators a Chance to Shine
 
Turtle (click to view larger image)The annual James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation (JFLF) Awards give students the chance to showcase their welding skills in the national spotlight and enhance their writing and problem-solving skills in the process.
 
Open to high school students, students in career and technical programs and those pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees, the Awards honor students who use their creativity and fabrication knowledge in a major welding project.
 
Also considered in the judging are written reports that clearly explain the planning, execution, and results of the project. Winners, chosen on a regional and national scale, receive cash prizes and, depending on the award, their own personal wire feeder welder.

Tech Tip: Visual Weld Inspection
 
Visual weld inspection Knowing the proper way to visually inspect welds can help you identify problems in welding technique.
 
In this Tech Tip, Dan Klingman, Customer Training Instructor at Lincoln Electric, describes the following areas of visual weld inspection:
  • flat weld face
  • proper placement of weld in joint
  • weld uniformity
  • smooth transition between toes of weld and base material (wash-in)

How I Did It Project: Custom Fabricated Airboat
 
Airboat (click to view larger image)Todd Gunn built this airboat from scratch. It is powered by a 4.3L marine engine and Whirl Wind brand propeller and has a top speed of 42 mph on water. The airboat is currently being tested by police officers in the area where Todd lives.
Todd used a variety of Lincoln Electric equipment to do the welding:  Invertec® V205-T AC/DC TIG welder and POWER MIG® 255 wire feeder welder equipped with a spool gun for welding aluminum (current model is POWER MIG® 256).
Todd said, "The Lincoln Invertec® V205-T AC/DC has been the best investment I ever made.  The expertise and quality in this little machine just blew me away."
 
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.
