    just like anything else, different sites have different attitudes and people. some will fit you better than others. there is plenty to be learned from them all. some will just feel more inviting than others depending on who you are.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

              Welcome
              I've looked at lots of boards and this one is the coolest by far. No big arguments and if you ask something stupid nobody will hang you over it. Although everybody busts on James for his spelling. Hes doing much better now I always knew what he meant. As I type this I just found spell checker.....LMAO

                My dad has had a monkey wards cracker box for over 40 years. We put a rectifier on it in mid 70's, and it is still used. Runs 5/32 7018 real well, but won't run 6010 at all, lol. No that great a rectifier, lol. Welcome to the board. A lot of knowledge here.

                Personally I don't care what color the machine is, just how it welds, heheh.
