    Refilled my MIG bottle and got a bottle of argon to try out the TIG. The first pic is TIG weld, 20 gauge sheet metal T joint with a filler rod, today was my first time using a TIG. Second pic is MIG welding two bolts together. Those are my weld skillz, both done with the same machine, TA-211i fabricator.
    Addictive, aint it?
    Gonna be quiet again for a little while, so show some patience. It will be worth the wait.
    ...I promise you

    Yeah it really is addictive haha, If you can use it to pay for itself you got it made though. People will pay really good money to have things welded.

    I just added this Millermatic 250 MIG machine to the collection today. I found it for sale in Craigslist for $800. It can weld metal as thick as 3/4inch plate. I jumped on it immediately.


    The little 114v Hobart is officially useless now. I'm giving the 140 handler to my little brother as a gift. He will get a lot of use out of it I'm sure.

    I bought a Hobart 120 from a pawn shop a few years ago and have been flux welding with it. no great pictures from that, but I did swap over to mig wire and gas last year and it has made a difference. I have not had the chance to do anything serious with it, but have birdshit on a few motorcycles enough to hold up to the drop test.

    When I got to put something serious together, I take it to work and let the professionals handle it or at least let them coach me on a few pointers. The welding machines we have at work are lightyears better than my Hobart 120. I have looked at putting in a 50A socket into my garage and buying a larger machine, but im lazy and have no money.

    Still learning with the TIG. Managed to weld this earlier tonight. Probably one of my best aluminum welds so far.

    Before you buy a welder you have to know what you want to weld and how much you want to spend.
