    My little welder came in today. Hell for $180 I couldnt pass this up. Has really impressive reviews on amazon and youtube. Gonna be perfect for the garage and to take to events for broken parts.

    Runs on both 110v and 220v and has a 60% duty cycle which is really impressive on its own. If it only lasts me a couple years and I run the hell out of it, well worth that $180

    Do NOT weld anything over 1/4 inch. This is a short circuit transfer welder. Not a spray or globular welder.

    Truth. If I have to run anything thicker I wil have to seriously bevel it out. Bought this mainly for repairs and small projects. I really dont like Smaw process for most things, but the simplicity is nice for repairs in the driveway.

    My bad here. I didnt realize this was a SMAW. I thought it was a GMAW.

    Minor little update. I managed to get ahold of a company that used to sell Delrin Intake Plenum spacers. They had recently gone out of business but their Facebook page was still up and I managed to get one of their last spacers. I will install it when I get to doing the valve covers and such this summer. Evem if it doesn't make a difference at least I tried to make some power.

    Ive been pretty flu ridden the last few days but I am tired of sitting in the house. Decided to make a little raised platform on my BluePoint roller for my welder. Im by no means a carpenter but it turned out ok and does what I want.

    Right? I still need to pull them down and scrub them up really good and get them looking like new, but I dont think it will take much.

    Everything inside is brand new as well as the bearing on the ends and the hoses
