How They're Made

As you may or may not know, all of the fabricated metal parts offered by JEWLSCustoms are hand made by myself in my small shop.

The first and most important part of the fabrication is marking the tubes for cutting.  I buy 6' polished stainless and welded carbon steel tube from an online source.  6' makes it easier to ship, and I get two complete grill stanchions from a single tube, with no waste.

 

Once the tube is marked, then it's time to start cutting.  It's important to make sure the cuts are done on the correct axis, and that they're square.  I made a simple gage to make sure the marking line is at 12 o'clock.

The stanchions are three pieces, welded together.

 Then they're set up, squaring the cuts and clamping.

Once all three tubes are tacked together, the stanchion is clamped to a vertical support to be sure it's square/plumb.  Then the mounting plate is squared to the short tube, at the crazy angle of the Yamaha hull mount.

Once everything is tacked, final TIG welding can begin.  The tapered table mount is added to the top of the tube, and the it's ready for final finishing.
