    I always forget about cases. And subsequently just remembered a couple of guitars I forgot I had languishing in thier cases.

    anyone have any good solutions for keeping guitars on a wall without them looking showy or with big ugly hangers?

    I've got a whole bunch in my living room on individual stands but would like them up on the wall above a sofa or something, filed up neatly and making good use of space with a nice/minimal way of hanging them. I'm not looking to display them or show them off.

    anyone seen anything interesting? I'm thinking of fabricating a rail from box section stainless with sliding hangers of some kind or using clear polycarbonate to detract from any obvious looking wall fittings. but inspiration would be cool. everything I've seen so far looks a bit of an after thought

    stainless steel and high end parts won't come in anywhere near £350.

    regular steel frame will though

    I’ve welded up a crack similar to this, where it ran in to the braze.

    Just removed everything to see the whole crack and tig welded as much as I could, starting a weld pool before the crack and running it in to the crack with a filler rod. Ran it as close to the braze as possible then filled the rest up with bronze rod.

    This was on a Brompton but a similar situation.

    I’d forget mig on that unless you’ve done thin sheet work with a mig, it would probably just blow a hole in the tube and you would still have the braze to contend with.

    I’m due a new bottle, sgs rent free argon is what I’ll be going for. They seem to be the best option for rent free and the deposit is refundable when you’re done. They appear to be one of the best on refills too

    Awesome. Rtech seem to have a good reputation.

    Have you sorted out gas for it yet?

    If you’re prepared to come down to Sussex I know of a workshop which is open to the public, you just pay to use the equipment and they have a very good tig welding set up. It’s how I learnt, then went and bought my own equipment.
