    I ordered a 220 from Cyber*eld after assuring they had stock... took them a week just to ship it and I'm just short hop away from their west warehouse! After I placed that order, I ordered a Hypertherm Plasma Cutter from a midwest seller.. it arrived 3 days later, BEFORE the 220!...

    My LS's Yanmar engine is officially rated at 24.5 HP, I presume so it can avoid all the exhaust fubar. Either that or the engineers really dialed in the pump and cylinder specs because it works like it's got a lot more horsepower. and no DEP or regen or cats.. not even a computer.. just...

    New welder arrived and I got a chance to set it up today and try it out.. fantastic! I could never get a satisfactory weld on my Lincoln mig machine but this Multi 220 was laying pro-looking beads from the start. Tig is super easy too. Love it....

  • Who else keeps their Sticks in the refrigerator?

    When I was a kid, my grandfather used to have an old defunct Kelvinator that he stored all his electrodes in, with a light bulb burning 24/7. He thought it told me it kept them dry and just like a good grandson, I believed him. Years later and armed with college degrees, I instrumented-up that old...

    New rig is supposed to arrive today although watching it's tracking makes me wonder. I know I'll probably never deal with this vendor again.. a week after ordering (and having the money transferred) and they still had not even shipped it until I called them and threatened to cancel.

    I had mine in a regular 2-car garage along with a lather and CNC mill and woodworking stuff so it was pretty cramped. I actually built a workbench over it.

    it's just too big and uses way more power than the newer stuff.

    HA! no fishing for me. I actually was kinda forced into retirement thanks to the whole Covid scam but, that's OK. I was already collecting on my retirement funds and getting ready to move plus, my employer gave me a 6 month salary continuance for severance.. they made it easy financially.
