What did you do in your shop today? in The Way Posted Sunday at 12:08 AM No pics, but I will sort some out! I used to use a massive stick welder (hard to describe, but size of a wheel barrow) - after 20 years I could sometimes lay a reasonably neat bead with it. It got toasted in the fire. I got a replacement welding set, that is primarily a tig unit that does MMA(I want to learn tig for my stainless damascus, so upgraded) - New set is about the size of a shoe box. F-me, I laid the neatest few lines of stick weld on a job yesterday with the new set I have ever done! 3.5mm 6013's - looked like a proper welder did them. Really amazingly neat welding. It was easy. God knows what is in that little box but it made me look good!!!
