    its official, I have a running welder. lol. took me forever and day to finally get around to getting it installed, but I got 'er in and tested it out. Doesn't get much more manly than fusing steel.. i welded two old brackets I had laying around together. Im sure its a crap weld, but I don't care... Im hella psyched. :D I'll be practicing every day after work until I feel confident and then its time to go to town with the K5. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: woo-hoooo!!!! :cool1:

    Im sure it will be. A few more tools and I'll really be able to do some cool stuff that I previously would have had to pay someone $$ to do. Just need to get proficient with it and then its AWWWNNN!! :D

    congrads dude. I think I would go nuts if i didnt have a welder. It is one of those things it takes practive to make better welds like anything else. hell mine arent usually prety but they work good. thats the biggest thing
