    Default an interesting convo...

    A friend of mine came by the shop today to shoot some bull and one of his old time friends came by who I didn't know. He was probably in his mid to late sixties but in any event, he noticed "my corner of the shop" where I keep my gear separated from the paws of my shop monkey's. He noticed that I used for the most part transformer based machines and asked why I didn't use the smaller lighter inverters. Thinking about this thread I didn't have much to say (on my own) other than "This is gear I was brought up on". Thinking I was about to get a ration of "get into the times" man, he immediately pounced on the inverters as a inferior product. I don't have room here nor do I remember all that he said but the point and principle was: The inverter is a great piece of equipment when being used to power equipment but not as the power source itself. He further added that the inverter was never developed for a primary source of power and that the inverter can only replicate the transformer and inverters used to supply power to homes, boats and the like are based entirely on different principles of use...?

    Just an interesting convo...

    All I know is that I can't pick up a Syncrowave, carry across the shop and lock it up in the locker I built inside of a metal table... My Dynasty on the other hand.
    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

    Com'on whimpy, I put my sync under my left arm my MM350 under the other and walk five miles to work everyday and then back home. Uphill both ways, snow, rain, bob wire fences and mind fields are but a few obstacles along my daily journey! And on top of all that my wife often calls to have me pick up some groceries on the way home.

    Top that
