Default Re: Anyone use supere cheap harbor freight type welders for their bikes??

great advice,Swag.
one thing i would like to add,i have a welding jacket,it was 40.00 if i recall,well worth the money,an apron might be more suitable if you do most of your welding while sitting.
footwear is something else to consider,the sparks and blobs are really painful when they burn throught the top of your shoe.

one serious burn and walking becomes a problem.

i have lit up a flannel jacket on more than one occasion ,not realizing it as the electronic helmet doesent need to be flipped up to see the next spot to weld.
i notice the funny smelling smoke and getting kinda warm.
the welding jacket has saved me the cost of many bush jackets.
