WRX Wagon - Custom Roll Cage - Making a dimple die gusset.
Here is a video on how I make a gusset from the Main-Hoop to the B-Pillar
of the Subaru. This cage is 1-3/4" .120 wall DOM & MIG welded. Thank for
WARNING: I'm not trying to be reckless, I ALWAYS wear at least safety
glasses when using cut-off wheels but often wear my welding helmet (on
grind mode) or a face shield. NEVER STAND directly inline with the cut-off
wheel, stand offset from the "line of fire" if it were to break/explode and
come loose it'll be less likely to fly at your face, neck or body. I wear
leather gloves too but wasn't during this demonstration due to handling a
camera. I'm not trying to promote bad safety behavior, I said this is not
for "newbies" but should have also mentioned NEVER buy China/Taiwan cheap
brand cut-off wheels from places like Harbor Freight. Those are not nearly
as quality and come apart (explode). I always buy quality Made in USA or
alike brands that I know to be legitimate quality.
