When you see a finished weld that looks really good, most people are able to realize that it’s a thing of beauty, something that definitely didn’t come together without a little bit of practice and time invested into honing the craft. There are a lot of things about wrenching on a car that can be pretty straightforward and things that you don’t need a ton of talent to get done correctly, however, when it comes to welding, it’s definitely a task that not everybody can do and therefore, when you come across somebody who can, it is a thing of beauty as they lay down some dimes and show what they’re capable of.
In this one, we can see what the process behind that beautiful finished product looks like. After all, a nice weld like this one doesn’t come from any sort of machine or out of thin air, now does it? It looks like the individual behind this video that shows us how a merge collector is created has had a little bit of practice welding, himself, and really shows it as this oddly satisfying set of steps comes together to show us exactly how it’s all done from how the pieces are cut to how they’re put together nicely, and eventually welded so that they stay together.
If you’ve never seen anything like this before, it’s definitely something to get your eyes on as you’re exposed to the world of welding that really delivers up a nice piece. After getting lost in this one for a minute or two, be sure to tell us what you think of this DIY video that kind of lifts the veil off of what it means to make a nice weld. After watching this one, you might get a little bit more appreciation for some of the parts that are on your vehicle and the people who make that happen.
