    Yes, I hear ya, Lots of things to get cleaned up, then it's relax time.
    I've been busy selling All my equipment , got it done in Six Weeks.

    I've always wanted to get into the artistic side of the welding industry, after spending many years as an Iron Worker turned business man ( Mobile Welding )

    That's where the new Multi-matic 215 will come in handy, can weld mig/stick & I can learn to Tig weld.
    Tig really didn't fit into what I've done all my life.

    Looking forward to the up coming months and years of enjoyment !

    But joking aside, my mother retired from the federal government about two months ago after 40 years. She says now she is busier and on the go more now than when she was working full-time.
    Yep - See post above this one.

    i had a fancy a$$ cart with my old 175 that had been modified over the years with hangers, brackets, and such as I found a need for things to hang on it to be nearby. I was quite surprised to find out that the 215 is about 1/2 wider the the top tray and it wouldn't fix. I have started making a new one with an old lay down Push cart as the foundation. I use it outside a lot and need the cart to be able to roll over soft ground.

    I just ordered a flex head replacement gun from HTP and they mentioned the stock liner would be fine with 0.023 at 10 feet, so decided to get the flex head as it was not very pricey and I totally could use it on my car project. Picked up some 0.030 wire and tips too for more testing too .

    tell me how you like that head. I am on the fence about ordering one on there 15 foot lead, so I have a little more reach so I don't have to hang it in the air at times like I did on what it's replacing.

    I think the flex flex head will be the ticket for doing exhaust work.
