Bob, your philosophy about building fixtures for specific projects is what I'm after and I have done a little of it so far. I do ornamental ironwork using traditional blacksmith techniques as...

    fixturing techniques?

    Are there any pointers that any of you can give me about fixturing? For example, I'd like to do some limited production of similar types of furniture.

    The tax man and your accountant are the two folks you want to keep happy. I don't know specifics about how much you get back from 'write offs' but it is extremely important to keep receipts and if your truck is used for personal stuff, keep mileage records. Your accountant can save you lots by depreciating...

    What I have learned is:
    Keep receipts! Your accountant will love you.

    Many thanks for pointing me toward harbor freight for the wall mounted unit. My current shop is kind of small and the wall mounted one will be a great help.

    Hi Andy,
    Thanks for the tips. I have been using .035 wire, 75% argon, 25% co2. My very first project with the 251 was some larger stuff so I started with .035. I had been thinking of getting some lighter gage wire. I also learned pretty quick that it worked better to push than to pull....
