Welding is a great hobby for anyone who wants to repair or built things for fun. Welding is a great way to make money. You can also turn your hobby into a thing that pays extra money. If you hate buying things when you can make them yourself then this project is right for you.
If you follow these steps then you can make chain wine bottle holder at home. This project is beneficial for both new and professional welder. Professional welder can test his skills and new welder has opportunity to improve your welding skills.
You need to collect following things before starting work on this project
- A MIG welder
- MIG Welding helmet
- ⦁ Welding gloves
- ⦁ 3 feet steel chain of 30 mm long link (2.2kg/meter weight). You can change size and length of steel chain according to your choice.
- ⦁ Take a empty can of 1000ml volume has 4 inch diameter and 5 inch height
- ⦁ Spray paint of any color you like
- ⦁ An empty bottle of wine
Arrange steel chain around the can of 4 inch diameter in uniform circle and weld the chain links by using MIG welder. MIG welding gun is just like a hot glue gun of welding world. If you need more stability of chain holder then use some other can of bigger diameter.
You can also give square shape to the chain by arrange it around square metal piece.
Now arrange remaining chain over can so that the chain is perpendicular to the welded circular base. If the angle between arrange chain and welded circular base is more than 90 then life of welded joint increase.
You can increase the length of inclined chain by arranging it over something more than 5 inch height. Now weld the chain link carefully. Strong welding joint is necessary in inclined chain links especially bottom and top links have to bear more stress during bottle holding.
Now arrange the remaining part of chain in circle of a diameter equal to bottle neck. Weld the links and inset bottle neck into circle. Now wrap remaining chain around the bottle neck in another circle and weld the chain links. Now weld the remaining hanging links of chain.
Now clean the welded chain from spatters by sand paper and apply coat of spray paint. After drying paint apply coat of cleaner.
