    its no big conspiracy, all he was doing was gathering neat welding photos, wether it be of rigs, trailers, neat ways to set up shops, projects that people have done, etc. and put them on a decently well organized website so that people can chekc them out when they want to without having to find the original threads. Its a great way to ge the creative juices flowing, in my opinion
    that sounds like a cool ideal, i wouldnt mind him useing my pic's for that. too bad its gone i would have liked a chance to have looked it over.

    there was a feller scooping all the pics he could and assembling them on a Yahoo site. I'm still not sure how I feel about that....

    what would he use the pic's for ??? i have kept a few pic's from here cuzz it was some thing cool i thought i might build some day, but to put them on another site?? for what reason??? if he was claiming to have done the work himself i can see getting upset, i gess i just dont see the piont of a site full of other peoples stuff?? do you know what the point was????

    Shield Arc, come out from hiding

    Hey Shield Arc, you should post up an picture of your truck. I sure like the way you have it set up with the big lincoln and the smaller ranger (or similar, sorry, my memory is a little bit unclear). Other than the extra weight, it looks to be the best of both worlds.

    One more question. I can see how the connections are done for the welding leads and AC extension cord, but how are the connections done for the acet/oxy reel?

    I built the oxy/acy and 120v/ditch box spools this year and they are just a pipe on a pipe so they have some (intended) built in drag, they stay wherever I stop them but they spool out smooth and spool up fast.
    The welding lead spools I made a long time ago and they have bearings (I wouldn't do that again) so no drag, they will run away easily. On the two trucks they were on previously I just hung the stinger and ground on a rod and they never ran out unexpectedly. On this truck I mounted them low enough to the deck that the last loops of lead drag lightly on the deck , that's enough to not run out plus it makes the leads hard to steal.
    The oxy/acy spool has quick connects on the side.

    JTMcC.

    For what its worth, I always found it to be a bit of a compliment if anyone wanted to keep a copy of what my rig looks like. Sometimes its neat to see pictures of your stuff pop up here and there, as long as its not being plagerized.

    OK,ok!!

    JT...........you are right............I need to get my butt in gear; wash "Henry" (Ford) up and get some pics posted. I really took a cooler on posting pics online a little while back.............there was a feller scooping all the pics he could and assembling them on a Yahoo site. I'm still not sure how I feel about that.............guess I need to get over stage fright and embrace the age of the www.
