    Have you ever been traveling on business or vacation and seen a piece of welding equipment that made you think "The guys at home have GOT to see this"?

    I was in Rwanda last week and in addition to several open air welding shops (no PPE), I got an up close and personal view of this 240v SMAW transformer. It was being used for decorative iron work on a stair railing in a new building in Kigali, the national capital. It hummed and smoked, and made me more appreciative of my Dynasty 200DX.

        Mean while in American I get a fine because my extension cord has electrical tape covering up a chafe mark and my ladders are thrown off the job because my labels are faded and my safety harness is 3 months out of date but has been used less then a dozen times. HUMMMM

          Nikola Tesla did crazier stuff than that, like blowing holes in the heels of his shoes form the force of the arc.

            Gmmandan; just for you, here's an extension cord from the same jobsite. No electrical tape necessary.

            The ends of the 12ga wire were stripped 1/2" and stuck into a wall socket.
