    Well, I was at Sears on Sat & theye had some return items marked 50% off. I picked up a 230/240 AC/DC Heavy Duty ARC welder for 120. It was originally 300. It even has the helmet, gloves, and a outlet. I talked with bro-in-law (Master Electrician) about getting 220 in my garage. ANyway, I stoked. I've got some scraps around. Now it's time to play. My buddy is a master welder & he's gonna give me some tips.
