    Some one gives you a 1/4" rod and you get to crank the machine up flat out.
    That's my idea of livin it up.

    On a side, got to try that at school the other day to test a welder. It had been blowing breakers as snacks so the electricians wanted to probe it for amp readings. 1/8 7018 at 120'ish and it pulled 70 amps at the breaker. Biggest rod in the parts room @ 180'ish and it pulled 102 amps at the breaker, Electricians eyes almost popped out of his head, I think that made his day too.
    By the way, doesn't that number sound a little high, welder is an old Dialarc 250 AC/DC?
    Dynasty 200DX, first generation
    Makita 5" grinder
    Makita 14" abrasive saw
    IR SS5L compressor
    Whole bunch of hand/air tools.
    and a wish list a mile long

    • You might be welding too long when you change tanks then the wire burns really hot and fast and it takes a while to figure out you put on a tank of Argon...

          Your portable work bench is an empty 55 gal drum supporting a 4'x4' sheet of 3/8 steel.

            It's common to walk into to work to find broken metal objects on your workbench accompanied by an IOU for a case of beer

              You get offended when the foreman asks you to fit for another welder.

              Kudos again, Steve. "Some men are born to greatness. Some achieve greatness. Others have greatness thrust upon them." If Billy Shakespeare had been a welder, he would have added," But the truly great start record shattering threads on millerwelds.com."
