Unboxed one of these today. (See pic below.) I got tired of running up on problems and the obvious answer being, weld it. A fortunate turn of events got me this set up for an awesome price. I hardly know where to start, I have 5-6 projects already in mind, and no telling where it will go from there. I guess making small pieces of scrap into bigger pieces of scrap will be the first order of business. I have a pro welder named "Dad" to show me the ropes, so I'm hoping I can pick it up. He's had me welding before here and there, so I'm not expecting it to be too difficult to pick up. I'm set up for MIG with shielding gas, but this machine will do a little of everything, except TIG aluminum. (It will MIG aluminum with a spool gun, if I wanted to.) It's pretty stout as well, it can handle up to 1/2" plate. I'm pretty impressed with the welder reading it's specs, great for what I want. I can do simple stuff now and grow with it to do more advanced techniques, all in a package that isn't overwhelmingly large and heavy. (Without a spool in it I can easily lift it myself.) Harbor freight has a nice fold up welding table now. I picked up the only one they had, I'll probably get another though. One is a bit small for any large project, but they will connect to each other to expand your space, and fold flat which is perfect for my small working area. I have handy 220v in the garage and got a 50' extension cord to reach out into the driveway, so I should be set to reach out to the vehicles when I need to weld directly on them. Didn't get to try it out today, but got it out of the box and mostly ready. I'm itching to start fabbing my own stuff and make what I really want, not just what is available to buy. It will open up new worlds on building my 4x4's up. I figured it was cheaper to get set up to weld than to ever hire it out or buy parts for stuff than can be quickly fabricated.
