Ordered my new welder and accessories today.

I severely stretched the budget on this, as it is a hell of an upgrade from my $800 model, but I am hoping it will all be worth it.

What's the first project going to be?

Running 240V to the shop.

After that I have a gate that I need to mount on an I beam gatepost. I need to burn some bolt holes and put some pipe in to support the gate mounting.

I made the gate just before I moved up hear and lost my ability to weld.

Rat bass turd trucking co! They were supposed to deliver it today but the driver loaded the welder at the front of the truck (dumbass). I had said I needed it by 2:00. Not that I plan on using it soon but ineptitude pisses me off.
