I borrow a friend's 110volt Miller 135 mig on occasion. It's proven to be too small for some of the stuff I do.

I don't know how much aluminum I'll be doing, but I'd like the option of being able to.

Should I hold out for a deal on an AC/DC tig that I can afford or jump on something like this:
http://eugene.craigslist.org/tls/3408100367.html

If it sells before anybody sees it, it's a Miller 185 with a spool gun for $600/offer.

I do have 220 in my garage so that's not an issue.

What do y'all think
Have yet to read a few more pages, but my neighbor has a BluePoint (aka Snap-On) wire feed. Takes a bottle or flex core. Excellent shape, wants $250 for it. LMK if you are interested and I will hook you two up.

Guys, Ryan here. Thank to everyone at the Pad for looking into our lights. Matt and I are stoked to get you all set up. For the record, the order was placed this morning and cleared 3 G's. I anticipate having everything up and ready by next weeks meeting. I am in no means telling you to bring your check books, but if anyone wants anything I will have some stock with me. A few guys gave me names and numbers for specific special order items and I will contact them directly. Otherwise, I will have plenty of spots, floods, bars, and spec lights to go around. If you want to contact me directly by text, email or phone my cell # is 541-513-eight nine four zero and my email is bright.ledbars@gmail.com. Feel free to get a hold of me anytime. FWIW, I am also part of LCSO search and rescue so if you are ever in a bind, Ill come snag ya.

I have not posted up much here but I have been a lurker for a while now. I may have to dust of the XT225 and come out for a few rides. Please remember, if we need to fab,weld or make brackets I am available to help. I have the tools to get it done. Look forward to seeing you again and help others if I can.

-Ryan

Here's what I've been working on for the last several weekends: a cabinet to store Mrs. V-Duck's wine collection.



Enough room in the front to store 112 bottles in racks.


Fully insulated with 1.5" rigid foam insulation.
No refrigeration, just intended to keep the wine stable between 55 and 60F.


And on the back side, room to store 12 cases on shelves.


We're in the process of covering it with wine corks. We'll take any that you may have hanging around...

No meetup for me tonight.
Daughter #2's 24th birthday today and she's coming down from PDX for dinner, etc.

I'm up for a ride Friday or later in the weekend if one develops...

Figured the locals should get first shot at it.
Interested!

split 'em lengthwise, they'll cover twice as much.
of course, you'd be sitting at a bandsaw for a long time.

I looked on googled maps and put the little man in the street view, right about where you said,,and I don't see "turn the corner , 2nd house, and look for my vehicles" as a viable method of any real expectation of accurate on target arrival. The first house beside the big blue church would work,, if you had a big blue church next door.
Therefore,, if I do attempt to attend your gathering,it will be hit or miss,,me riding up and down, forth and back in a gradient search pattern.

it is up to you to run out into the street and thrust a shovel handle thru my REAR spokes to alert me as to my arrival at the correct location. I promise to stop very soon after,,if not immediate like!,,
Oh, answer to the question.

Oaxaca Pepper
Spicy Jimmy Nardello
ch ch che cherry bomb
Ancho boom boom
Chipotle sauce
Killer Joe,(not recommended for life forms as we know them) (sub-note: always carry a bottle of this for attack/escape scenarios) ,,"STUPID HOT!", was the description I got from the maker of wonderful tastes

I could add my flavorites and a full rating of each, but I am biased.
My personal fave is the Oaxaca, Jimmy and che haven't yet settled out in my competition,,see that? there's a tit in the middle of that word!,,no wonder so many people like compeTITion,,everybody likes titties! The lucky ones grew up on a pair of them,, sadly, I was allergic to milk of any kind, so I was raised on beer. Oh, the sorrows that I see,,,

[edit] neglected from breast feeding at birth, I maintain a dedicated effort to regain lost bonding and

missed tonight's meeting cuz I was over at Superpacman's watching (mostly) him install my crash bars...

Paxton's a cool kid and his Old Man outta be proud of his son. I'm older'n his Dad BTW. Holy CRAAAP...I guess I'm older'n EVERYONE now it seems.

There was carpet on the floor of his heated garage...CARPET I tell ya! I haven't had a garage in over 13yrs much less a heated one with carpet! If I'd have had a pillow I'd have just gone nighty-night right there next to the Klr....which looks a little more...'substantial' now with the bars installed.

Thanks again dude!

I just got home and the ride to Brownsville was drier and ccccolder tonight. I pretty much swam home Monday night. Tuesday pretty much the same. I found out exactly where my gear ISN'T waterproof. The ride seems a little longer on these rainy nights. No deer to scare me but I dang near hit a frikken nutria that decided at the last second to reverse his motation. Close...but no hit.

Status check Ken?

Y'all have a great T-Day tomorrow and if you get stumped when it comes your turn to say what you're thankful for....
I go by Czechplease and....you know me. (what....that's not enough to be outta-yer-mind grateful?)
