So, a contractor friend of mine is packing it up and moving to Oregon.
He wanted one of my gongs, so I made him this one. In turn, he gave me a COMPLETE Victor Journeyman set-up with bottles and a cart. Said he didn't want to lug it around since he never uses it. The rosebud and welding tips have not seen any gas!
Learned something cool on this gong. For the clanger, I uses a 3" square plate, 1/4" thick, with the corners rounded slightly. If it contacts the bell just right, 2 of the corners will contact a split second apart which produces a really different ring.
