trust me ,,, removable now ,,, it will save you doing the paint again in the future should you change bottle size .Yeah, I thought I'd start with the small hobbyweld bottle (have a supplier right around the corner) and see how long that lasts. I designed the cart to have enough room for the diameter of the bigger bottle. Could lift a fair bit of weight before lockdowns shut down all the gyms so I figured I'd be alright. Never held one of the bigger bottles though so we'll see.
Thanks for the feedback everyone.
I've been spending lunch breaks outside grinding my flanges close to the line. And then filing them into shape in the evenings. Filing is nice, very relaxing.
I'll put those on my ever growing list of toys I want. For now I'm afraid I'll have to make do.You can get Counselling for that.... [Sorry....]
You need a linisher in your life, it'd make short work of that. For the bending metal, heat in the form of oxy/propane is your friend.
