    I hope farts aren't too flammable, or a couple of kids at school are going to end up in emergency severe blast related injuries! (At least I've got a respirator, and there's a big fan in the back room)

    Makita 5" grinder
    Makita 14" abrasive saw
    IR SS5L compressor
    Whole bunch of hand/air tools.
    and a wish list a mile long

At 3 bucks per gallon for used tanks I recouped the cost plus in about 3 weeks. Now it takes longer to prep the tanks for welding than the actual welding. Sad news? You bet. They brought me a 1/2 thick Al truck frame part wanting me to tig it with the "new" welder.(135 amp max AC @ 20% duty cycle). Sometimes you can't win. I used Martha and 1/8 Al sticks.
    I suck at Al and it's a good thing I hired someone that cranks it out like a machine! In the unfortunate event I do Al (usually grab rail stuff on-site) I use my MM175 with the SM3035 and it turns out pretty darn good. Not like our tigs but pretty good. If you're wondering why I don't tig it, it's because even on a good day I would have to improve just to suck at tig. I'm a mig'er and stick'er

    Default About the farts!

    Farts are no laughing matter! The mere thought of someone producing an "air-biscuit" while using O/A is indeed frightening. It is in my opinion that a fart regardless of it's yield should be classified as an IED (improvised explosive device). Hence, providing federal protection in and around ones shop! It is also in my opinion that anyone who knowingly engages in the act or practice of methane production be immediately terminated, reported to homeland security and severely gang slapped!

    Just for grins I signed on to check the boards and I saw your post (s) bearing videos of the human posterior blow torches. My God, where is the humanity man? Imagine the aroma? And no back flow preventors! These devices need to be outlawed now!

    Cool

    Ya, when we all have chili for lunch I tell the guys not to fart just anywhere but use the empty cetylene tanks in back. Gas is expensive. I don't remember farting while welding. It would be the third thing. Can only talk and weld, that's two. Can't do three. Welds start downhile when I try. I would think the MP 30E would be 300 amps at 100%. The Mp 65E is 650 amps at 100%. Would have to look that one up to be sure.
