  1. Re: My garage build - project: "make it usable"

    The problem with retrofitting is the added labor. If you can do all or most of the labor yourself you can save a bit of money. If you have to hire others to do most of the work then it may very well...

    Re: Shop heater

    I use a smaller Modine forced hot water heater separately zoned from my boiler. My garage is 24x28 and VERY well insulated. It does just fine. Although dust does build up in it every now and again. I...

    Re: Hobart Handler

    Thank you very much for the input. I was hoping to hear from someone that owned a Hobart. A guy at work keeps steering me toward a Millermatic but it is around a $200+ jump for what appears to be...

    Hey guys,

    I haven't been on for quite a while. It's been a crazy summer. Nice to be back and a little less busy working so I can maybe get back to some my projects.

    Re: welding thin metals question

    I did it exactly how VegasBruce explained and it worked well. However, I figured it out the hard way. Lets just say the first panel I did was also my second.

    Re: what welding helmet do YOU use?

    Well I've finally been doing enough welding that I got pissed of at the free welding helmet and went out and got a Lincoln auto on/auto darkening mask at Lowes. It was $100 but it works great. I...

    I think I have the same one you have. I just kept blowing air back through the gun by placing the tip against a rag and giving it a quick shot or two. It also seems to work better with a full...
  10. Re: Travelling past Rock Tavern and Montgomery NY

    I do like the show from time to time and the bikes do look really nice but they are, for the most part, trailer queens. I would prefer to not stop and get home that much earlier.

    Re: WOW - it's been quiet in here.......

    The only infomercial I can bare to watch are the Girls Gone Wild ones. The rest of them are so irritating that I don't even like to scan through them.

    I have yet to see anything useful on one of...

    I agree with the LED idea. I have a small tactical flashlight someone gave me and MAN is that thing bright. It works great in small areas. Now if I could just make the light bend around...

    Re: Air compressor motor

    I don't like the oiless ones either. They seem noisy. I have a 60 gal that the compressor head blew on. I have a pump and motor from a Speed Air on it now. It's nice and quite.

    Re: what welding helmet do YOU use?

    Good to know Oldred.

    I have changed my lens with a slightly lighter one and it seems to be a little easier to use. The one I had was as dark as you can get, I think. The one I have now is a 10.

    Re: what welding helmet do YOU use?

    Good tip. I didn't even know that the ceiling light would be enough to make it darken. LOL!

    I'm not a big fan of HF either but maybe this would be the exception to the rule.

    Thanks.
