I’m typically not the biggest fan of buzzwords, and I try to keep them out of the garage, but the 4-link project that I’m currently in the middle of is victim of one of the buzzwords I use at work a lot, and it can have a terrible impact on a garage project, or any project for that matter.
I finally got a welder. It’s a very small Hobart 140. It runs off of standard 110 volt electricity, so it plugs into a standard outlet. It came with a gas attachment and a regulator, and all I really had to buy was a bottle of gas (the Hobart came with a spool of flux core, but I only made two welds before completely giving up on that …for now…).
I’m hesitant to start posting shop and tool advice. It’s such a personal thing, and everyone is gonna have their own way of doing it. Let’s just start there… Take my advice with a grain of salt. I’ve got my own way of doing things, but it doesn’t (probably) mean it’s the best way.
