                      Thanks and...

                      Thanks for the welcome guys.

                      I took a few months (well 1 1/2 -2 years) off from the welding business. I worked in the underground utility business as a project manager and left to start my own contracting business partnership.

                      The construction industry has hit an all time low in my area (East Tennessee). Fortunately I have kept in contact with most of my welding clients and have hit a lick here and there. I sold my TB302G and picked up a higher amperage machine for heavy duty construction maintenance (MILLER of course).

                      Anyway, I am working mainly on heavy equipment and a little on underground utilities: mostly wet taps and testing services-at least until the economy picks up.

                          Can you help a fellow out and steer him towards the best lake with cabin rentals in your area? When I was living in Harlan, KY I used to drive by the lake near Bean Station on the way to the Smokies, but don't know if that would be as good as it gets.
