    God that's a good way to kill time when I'm doing something boring. I find myself doing it alot more since I started actually welding for my supper a little over a year ago. I was an auto mechanic for 10 yrs. before that. Now I actually enjoy going to work. At leat as much as you can I guess.

    You quickly log onto "www.millerwelds.com's" message board to discuss welding issues, help out a fello welder, seek welding advice or solutions and come up with a completion to the "you might be a welder" phrase!

    Good game SSS, thanks for the laughs

    When you are tired of tacking and just want to burn some rod.

    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

    Cool

    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...

    You might be a welder if:
    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
