    A brand new tig AND mig machine. Nice! Someone spent some money today. Good machines like that will last a long time and help you build many cool things.

    cal-aero supply in paramount sell's govt surplus alum,s/s steel and all kinds of nuts bolts by the pound. not as cheep as it used to be. but you can spend hours looking in their. now they have added chineeze crap but its easy to spot. at one time it was a market so its pretty big store

    Now that's what I call a good shopping day. Miller is a quality machine. Your projects now are limited only by your imagination. Good man, Charlie Brown. Have fun.
    Now you need to start saving for a plasma cutter.

    Funny you should mention it, about the only reason I could get this stuff was because of Chipotle stock.

    Very nice, man what I would have given to use either one of those millers today as I was stuck using a stick welder for my rack. Excellent buy there, didn't know chipotle stock was up!

    Yeah I bought it at 39.90 per share when I realized I was addicted to there burritos and it shot all the way up to 276 per share the other day so I had to get rid of a little.

    I hated getting rid of any but I figured I could only justify it I bought something worthwhile. Now maybe I can get these mounts done so i can make the next San Diego ride again. zpt Looking forward to hanging out again.

    pretty good food. hard to belive its owned by micky-d. but come to think about it everything is set up super clean and they are always the same as the next one. peace of mind i guess all the meat comes from the same horse ranch.

    heres a rookie question why do you need a mig and a tig, ive never used a tig (thats the one with the pedle to control the aperage right?) ive only use a mig and good old steel welding with a set of torches and a rod or a coathanger (dont worry no coathanger on my bike or anything that involves a safety concern) srry to ask such questions im just interested in welding and unfortunetly i hardly come across it and im a mechanic i think its sad how so many mechanics cant weld (at least here in brampton and im reffering to the younger generation) but i love it i dont know what it is about it but ever since i could remember ive jumped on any opportunity i got to weld.
