    Just to follow up the off topic. I can now see why folks say steel is generally easier than aluminum. After getting over the initial differences (quieter, gnarly glow of red hot steel, etc.), I practiced a few butt welds. Compared to aluminum, the steel practically seemed to weld itself.

    Oh yeah. And I forgot to turn on my helmet for the second time. However, this time I realized it immediately and closed my eyes and killed the arc. Not that I'm worried about it this time, especially since I now know about the full time UV/IR shading regardless of whether the helmet is on.

    Doing the steel really was. Less tempermental than the aluminum and about the only thing you hear (without an MP3 player one ) is the steady, quiet stream of argon. Rather addicting and a good stress release.

    Miller should really do some thing about the noise.
    Not sure I understand. Are Miller welders loud in general? This TA185 is the only welder I've been around duing use.

    I also love how the machine changes sound with every different setting so you KNOW how it is set simply by the sound it makes. Low hz makes a clicking sound like a racoon and higher chirps like a bird!! Pulse just intensifies it all together.
    When I go work in shops with my Dynasty that also weld I make sure I run the gammit on changing the hz and pulse just so they know I got something they don't and don't understand for that matter. Arrogant but I hate teaching my customers how to compete with me.
    It is so loud that you can hear it over the Bobcat a couple hundred feet away if conditions are right...people know when I'm bustin" @$$

    There's a line in the movie "Blade Runner", that says something like: "I've seen things, been places and done things your mind can't imagine."

    Added FusionKing's quote so Root would understand.

    Craig seems to have started babbling incoherently again. Next he is going to tell us that he was the one that said that in Blade Runner.

    And, at least my incoherency encircled transcendent reflection leading down the corridor of internal wisdom and ethereal tranquility.
