  • tomkp,

    I am no engineer by any means, but I do have some on the job experience with similar equipment. If I am incorrect, I apologize, just trying to help you out.

    replied to Guardrail Specs - Help!
    Thanks for all the replies guys! This railing does have a toekick already attached as indicated by the pink lines on the drawing. The toekick will be 1/4' x 4" flat bar, welded to the uprights so as to create a OSHA safe toekick. The guardrail will be 42" in height, measured from the top surface...

    Hey all,

  • Off hand, i would say that it is simply picking up particles from the torch, etc. Also, did you leave the cap off for a long time/ possible get dust in the coolant? Then maybe it could be mold of some kind?!?! just saying

    replied to Xmt 304
    The XMT 304 is a great machine, you have many years of great welding with that machine ahead of you. We used XMT 304's at the school I went to, and they were the toughest, best welding machine I have ever used. Good Luck to you!

    replied to Firestorm grinder died today
    Buy a Dewalt 4 1/2" 11 Amp grinder with a paddle switch if you want quality. Mine ahs been heavily abused and it still works perfect. I paid $85 for mine from Northern States Supply.

    replied to What's the best MIG machine?
    Personally, I would buy an XMT 304 or 350, a 70S wirefeeder, and an aluminum feeder with a push/pull gun, or you could also go with a Millermatic 350 and an aluminum spool gun or push/pull gun

    Conduit Size

    I looked up the NEC (National Electric Code) and they said that it will legally fit into 1/2" EMT, but it will be a fairly hard pull, especially if you have any bends in your run, so I would recommend a 3/4" EMT for your wiring. PVC would be a poor choice becuase...
