This next pic shows the boiler  in the tractor bucket.  The stays on the inside of the backhead were all the welding that remained.  To weld this in a flat position I needed to get the boiler  vertical and elevated.  we put it in the bucket and raised it high enough for me to get a chair  under it  to sit and weld.  The only problem was an outside temp of 31 degrees and windy.  With the heat on in the garage and the shop light on the boiler to heat it up before welding,  I started.    I lowered  the garage door as far as I could, to keep the heat in.  My feet were cold though.  Like being on both sides of the moon at the same time hot and cold.  As soon as the welding was done the garage door was closed.
