    Thanks. I will. I'm also a fan of Chucke2000, but he does some stuff just to see if doing it "wrong" will work. LOL. Its been kind of cool following him from being a student to running a job shop....

    replied to Chop saw blade for aluminum
    I cut quite a bit of aluminum with my table saw and a decent carbide wood blade. Not even top tier. However I did strip all the teeth off some el cheapo blades. I've also cut a little on my radial arm saw, and even with my Skil Worm drive for sheet with a backer board and just enough stickout to do...

    I got a pointer towards a document describing the processes and CC vs CV. This unit has an AC/DC switch on it. Does that mean I could run it off my old AC buzz box? I am reading the manual right now and it seems like it. My dad used to use it with his old Hobart DC stick welder/generator....

    TIG Power Supply

    My dad brought this by my shop yesterday evening. Said I could use it indefinitely (that usually means he's never coming back for it) if I wanted to try it out. The only welder I have that might be suitable (and the reason I am posting) is my Miller 212 (NOT Autoset) MIG. It's been good for me. ...
