Damn!! That's pretty coarse. I'm not sure even I would do that. I've left a lot of Big Brown Growlers but the majority have either been in the woods or a restroom...Never on a Kitchen Counter.

Mig tig or farm it out?

I've been kind of shopping for either a mig or a tig welder for a bit now. Peterman's got a great tig welder but it's out of my price range if I recall...I've slept since I saw it last so who knows

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

That only took two hours so don't stay too long or it will look like that...

In a moment of urgency, I've had to "Drop my kids off at the Park" , but never in the kitchen.

texting Matt just now (then) they're aware of our sensible shoes and soft hands approach to ye Olde Pad; early to drink, early to Wheel of Fortune...

btw- last guy called me 'the guy' is in a shallow ditch face down, same goes for 'boss' or any other monikers intoning authority. I'm a drudge.

I spend time in the machine shop on occasion....those guys get pissed when I walk in with a project and say "oh, plus or minus 1/4" is fine for this job"

I've since learned to tell them it needs to be way more accurate than I really need. They'll help me with the projects this way though.

I have a Miller 185 - great machine for up to 1/4" steel MIG work. Beyond that, you'll want something bigger. I gave almost $1,000 for it 15 years ago, so probably a fair deal if it's in good shape and comes with a bottle.

Spool guns are OK for some work, but unless you're doing a lot of thick plate work, a good 250 amp TIG is far more versatile.

The Miller 185 will do 98% of anything you'll ever need in a home hobby shop sort of environment.

GloryBee Foods (the honey people) over on Seneca Rd. have used 55 gallon steel and plastic drums "cheap" their drums contained food, well honey and other foods but they do not have stainless steel as far as I know. But the plastic might be a food grade plastic.... Thats all I know....
