Dude, that welder is bad to the bone! I am jealous. I have a CH 105A Mig for sheet metal and a Miller Thunderbolt 230A for stick. Clay bought a Lincoln 180C Mig and it is very impressive. He is wanting a TIG now. Hope he gets one... I want to build a boat! I graduated from college with an Ag degree, double major in Animal Science and Industrial Technology. Both majors served me well, and I enjoyed agriculture (still do!), but I am not working in my field these past three years. The industrial portion provided TONS of experience to do a lot of different things over the years. I think you have a good concept and you have an excellent start. If you REALLY LIKE agriculture, and you want to use your hands, look seriously into Ag Engineering. It's a great occupation, busy, and good paying.
Thanks for the advice

Grandmas are the best. Sounds like she gets dibs on shotgun for the jeeps maiden voyage.

I was literally sweating bullets into my safety googles while I was sand blasting. Ugh!

I can't sandblast until my compressor is hooked up to 240v. It's set up at 120v. It doesn't fill up quick enough while using continuous.
