Default Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!

Thanks for the encouragement you guys. Steve, you're already an accomplished welder. Today Dan and I stopped by the machine shop where he is employed and showed me some of the very cool big boy machines there capable of making other machines. He also showed me the small Miller welder (model 135 and 115 volts) hooked up to gas which he uses occasionally for the things he fabricates there. I counted a total of six wire feed welding machines in the shop including three tig welders. He did a weld with the Miller and it was so clean and regular... no spatter or slag to clean up. I can see why everybody prefers the solid core wire with gas. Steve, may your new Lincoln be everything you hoped it would be and thanks again for letting me use the Hobart to learn on this winter.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
