    Project posts: (I realize that some of these might be too short to really be considered a "build post". In some cases, I didn't take a lot of photos, but I tried to do a good writeup anyway. I leave it to your judgement as to whether they are worth a point or not.)

    I propose that my "welding pedal mod box" post(s) count as a "shop tool welding project". It doesn't involve actually sticking metal together, but it's a shop tool, and it involves welding. Well, I'm just throwing it out. Your call.

    I'll summarize now too: started at 866 posts; target count was 966; this should be post 1002.

    Watched / liked / commented these 5 to qualify:

    Wrote these reviews:

    http://weld.com/index.php/Weekend-Wa...g-210-ext.html

    ...so it looks like I'm in for 3. I *may* have a welding project in the next couple weeks, but it's not a shop tool per se, so I'll just post it when I get to it.

    Good luck, everyone! It's been fun, as usual!

    Start 1294, end 1532.
    Did the 5 like/comment on YouTube, but didn't have a chance to make any videos. Maybe next time.
    I could have sworn I had a review on Amazon, but I can't find it, so I guess just a single entry for me.

    Rambozo -- sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I think you missed the Oct. 1 deadline.

    Not to be pushy or anything, but how long does it usually take to announce the winners?

    Hmmm, there's a question for the mods: is October 1 the deadline for completion of entries/projects/reviews/etc, or the deadline for entering your self-summary?

    As always its the end of the contest. Any posts, any entries not completed do not count...as it always has been. Self summary should be completed with all due expedience.

    Doh!

    I forgot, I did do one qualifying project. My micro welding cart.

    I guess that give me a total of two entries. Maybe I do need to get a welder with memories, mine sure is getting flaky.
