    LOL, yes your right, that said, I will most likely wear out the grinders long before I wear out the cords. With the exception of the yellow DeWalt the rest are Harbor Fright specials which cost from $9.95 to $14.95.


    Especially the Harbor Freight grinders......I use them at workl because I beat the crap out of them and the cords short out right inside the housing from moving around or handling by the cord......I've replaced three of them....gotta love that guarantee lol

      I hope this doesn't sound too arrogant, but I have had it with H.F. Chinese crap.
      I thought it was cool at first but I am tired of throwing fairly new stuff in the trash.
      I started buying "Quality" Chinese crap instead.

        Even more funny is that of the 4 angle grinders I own, 1 DeWalt and 3 Harbor Fright all of them use a different size spanner wrench to change the disks

          I have both DeWalt and Milwauke and even though they have a different arbor size, the same spanner fits either brand....

              Yes, it is a great idea, but I cannot take credit for it. I've seen reference to it in post on this and other groups and seen pictures of the the same idea using an old oil drum and another that used a shallolw galvanized tub. I just took somone else's idea and applied it to material I had on hand.

                I'm ordering my MM180 in about 2 weeks. Wiring the garage for 220 soon. Looks good!

                I really did not expect to use the auto set feature all that much. But in practice it is much quicker than refering to a chart or relying on memory for speed and voltage settings. I like it. So far I have had no regrets about my choice of welder or plasma cutter, they are both impresive machines.

                  I love my MM180. That puppy is one hellva workhorse. It is rated very conservatively.

                  The step is a really BIG welder that takes up a lot of space. The MM180 is still a portable unit. I would like to see an option to dumb down at 110 V to give it more portability.

                  Enjoy

                    Nice Carts

                    Guys,

                    Great job on the carts pictured here.

                    I also like the cutting surface.

                      Ya got a welder - weld 'em all together end to end and one on top of the other for a 4-in-1 tool. Trouble is, loose one and you loose them all and you're screwed.

                      Nice cart btw.

                        Hello Larwyn,

                        Thought about you last w/e when my wife and I were down (up?) the road from you in Fredricksburg for our 29th. Great looking cart and spark catcher. I'll have to get me a drum and make one too.

                          I also really like the grate over the garbage can. I've been wanting to build a full size cutting table but just don't have the space, the garbage can idea will work just fine though and will be much easier to make space for.
