                  251mm

                  I love mine!!!! Get the spool gun too, welding aluminum is easy and fun. I do alot of welding on Winchester traps (cast ) .

                  I took the chart and put it into excel. Got tired of lifting the hood.
                  if you want a copy I will post it again on this board.

                      Dontcha just love people like that? Your TB is probably less noisy than some of the lawnmowers around and I bet he doesn't complain about them. Sounds like you can already get him for harassment. He is probably the most miserable one in the area and is bent on making everyone else just as miserable.

                      See if you can rent a trained skunk to pay him a visit.

                        Jim , Do you know if the settings for your 251 and the 250x are the same? if they are I'd like a copy of the chart. Thanks, Farris
                        PS. Great idea!

                            Hey, keep us posted on that. I've been wanting to experiment but have been too busy. If you find something that works well and doesn't interfere with any backpressure requirements of the engine, I want to hear about it.

                              Things get otta control sometimes with people like that, esp. when they have been told to mind their own beeswax (I like that word, beeswax) . The guy across from me has more than a few kids that drive, so he has to park his work truck on the other side of his driveway. A new older lady moved in next door to him a few months ago from upstate NY, she keeps calling the cops that a unoperable truck is parked in front of her house. The cops kept coming and red tagging it even though it moves every day. A few days ago the desk sergent came and told her that the steet in from of her house was public and if she didn't stop, he would take her in for false statements. She is taking pictures every day of the cars and is getting a lawyer while building a case . People like that scare me, you never know how far they will carry things ... watch your back ... and on a lighter note, enjoy the new toy.
