    Hi, this is my first post and I don't know if it will be alright. I'll start by saying I have benefitted greatly by rading some of the articles on this website. I had my first experience at welding about 35 years ago when I bought a stick welder. Over the uears I have done various projects like making gates, security bars for windows, BarBQ barrels etc. I am particularly interested in this discussion of the rebar trees because I have some grape vines and wanted a decorative way to allow them to grow. My plan was to use something like the tree, a rebar trellis, thus my interest. I looked up some ideas on the web and found one I think would work for me, actually several, but I will narrow it down. If worthy, I will try to post pictures for perusal and critique. You guys even get into interpersonal relationships (wives, girlfriends) that is good. Where would a lot of us be if it were not for the women in our life that support us, encourage us and yes 'fight' with us (not literally), and love us? I have been with mine for 42 years and I have to admit that she gets credit for making us what we are. Enough of that! Keep up the good info, it is encouraging and interesting for us who have not arrived as far as how to do some of the things mentioned on this site. I thank you--much.

    i think the biggest thing to look for in a grinder is the amp rateing. any thing under 5amps is going to be week and could cause problems. well you also want to look for solid construction. the cheepos you see on e-bay for a $1 are not werth the shipping so stay clear of them. i have herd HF's 4.5 is a good one but never tryed it. B&D makes a contractors grad 4.5" grinder(green one) at wally world for about $49.00 and is said to be a nice one also. i like the feel of it and will be giveing one a try as soon as my old B&D dies. the standerd B&D's are not the best and will only last about 6 months of hard work, i been threw about 10 of them. wally world will take back any thing. i am realy looking foreward to trying the green one though, might just get one befor the old B&D dies.

    Bullet Industries, HarborFreight, etc all have both. both size disk cost about the same... 41/2 inch disk will last longer... "more grind for the Buck"..

    I'm going to do this project, Rebar Trees remeber?, this weekend. I was checking out some angle grinders and found a sweet little 4" makita for 50 bucks. Besides the obvious difference of .5 inches in diameter is there a real difference between a 4.5" and a 4" angle grnder? Is it harder to find disks for a 4" grinder?

    Fun4now my girlfriend is definitely a good girl she gives and takes like I do we work together to do things she just got her first job and things will be a lot easier for us now. Our animals will definitely have A LOT more stuff now that we both pay half on everything. You never know this girl could be the one for me

    whats to elaberate ?? if they are the type that makes you do every thing and takes every thing for them selves (like you pay check ) or they generaly want to help out and give of there time and efferts. if you get a giver and you give in return you will be good to go. get a maker and a taker be prepaird to give it all and get little to nothing in return, for this to work you have to be verry submisive and want some one to run your life for you (looking for a new MOMMY.)

    i think its all in the upbringing, sorry to say that but she eather is or isent. best you can do is treat them like they are the best and only one for you and hope they treat you the same in return.
    mine came from a family with no $ so she is not a real big spender, never has been. you get a spoild daddys girl and you will be paying for it for life.
    i would have to say its all about respect, if you give it you should get it in return. if you dont, she is not the one for you to keep. no matter how cute she is. you can teach them to cook, mine couldnt boil watter for a hot dog when we met now she cooks almost all the meal's but thats about all you can teach them. they eather are cleaners and givers or makers and takers. takers tend to never change and are verry hard to live with long term and if you start a relationship one way dont expect them to change later on, thats the same for men and wimen. we seldome change our ways and a marege certificate is no majick sheet that will fix every thing and change her/him into what they are not. so dont expect that to make a diference.
    good luck, try to chose a mate with the big head above the waist, as aposed to the one below, and you should be ok.

    we spent several thousand $'s on special sewing and embroidery machines for her, the shop is my way to get out of the house and away from her.
    truth be told if she wanted to lern i would be happy to teach and share tools with her but she has no intrest in greasy, smoaky, dirty stuff, its my space and she guards my space and tools more so than i do at times. she made me get my TIG welder when i thought we should hold off and put the $ into the hose and she wont let me loan out any tools, i could not ask for btter than that. and she is all for me getting more tools when ever the need arises. she also understands the value of buying a good tool once as aposed to buying a cheap tool several times, thats how i got my Millers.
    i got a good one this time.

    fun4now, Here was my approach.
    You could always teach her how to weld and buy "her" new tools. I bought my g/f "her" own syncrowave.

    It all becomes "we" not "I" anymore. That is until it's divorce court time. Then it's all MINE..I lied!
