    Warning! complete noob with a welder, Beware!

    Loved your welds, just want to be able to do my own. I felt useless sitting around watching you weld.

    I think I got a good price on the welder, but I will have to wait till I have it in hand to make sure.

    I also bought a book on how to weld. Now to get a tank of Argon (?) and a pile of scrap steel to screw up.

    You have already taken a good first step - My Lincoln is soooooo much easier to control than the old CE that I had.

    1st project will be a welding cart. On the list of crap to weld:

    1- I need to rebuild the crappy KMA multi carrier I have.

    2- Then make something better than the Warn front bumper I have now.

    3- A gantry style crane for the shop is on the wish list.

    4- There is a bunch of crap the wife wants made also.
