  • New to Site

    Hello all I'm new to this site. Actually I've been lurking a while checking out some of the members projects and taking in a lot of info. Lotta good info here, great site. I've mainly done just stick welding in the past. Done some mig in a trailer plant and some tig on alluminum back in high school, waaaay back. Just wanted to introduce myself. About a year I purchased a Miller Bobcat 250 new. I only have around 6 hours on it, and that has been the last wek or 2. Bought it just in case of anouther hurricane, the 10'000 watt generator will come in handy. Just finished a winch bumper for my yota. I'll try to post pics as soon as I figure out how. Warning its not painted yet.

      Didn't think about looking at the welds, was in a hurry, temps in the mid 90's,
      dodging thunderstorms and working on it after 12 hour days. Was driving vehicle back and forth to work. Just exuses huh?

                  FRont Tube

                  I mitered the backside of the pipe as needed and cut with Victor, then had my helper ( daughter ) heat it with a rosebud as I put the bend in it. Thanks for the compliments. Going out to the shop to mess with my wally-world wire welder ( CH ) after I get my styhl weedeater fixed I hope.
