Sounds like I better keep my fingers crossed for that Lincoln to work out and I would gladly take those 10 minutes of walk through. As for practice, well since Jared just volunteered I guess I have something to practice on welding sliders for everyone. I hope he is working some OT to pay for all of the "practice" material though

I think I've got about $50 of metal into my monsters...














Make sure you have a chop saw and a 4.5" hand grinder. Then next you're gonna want a tubing bender and a notcher. LOL, trust me, it'll happen! welding gloves, auto darkening helmet, welding apron and one of those green welding resistant jackets are nice. I have a leather setup also that I on occasion bust out if I'm welding overhead. All of that stuff except the gloves and green jacket I would hit harbor freight for. If they have the thin green jackets I'd get that there too but if not, hit a welding shop for gloves and the jacket. I usually don't pay more then $15 for gloves but the welding store ones are much nicer then harbor freight and you can still have some feel to what you're doing. The HF ones don't last long enough to justify being totally cheapass. Trust me, it won't take long to learn when you're in a position that you're likely about to get hurt! LOL Sometimes I'm in t-shirt and shorts with sandals and I'm closing my eyes when I weld. Other times I'm in full gear... Arm pit hurts worse then your sack or taint... Take my word for it!

It's just another thing that snowballs... Kinda like buying pretty much any offroad toy! It starts off simple, then before you know it... "you know... If I had one of those xxxxxxx thingies, then I could build myself a xxxxxx"

It all started for me, I wanted a prerunner bumper on my exploder back in about '01. I got quoted like $400 for it. My dad had a welder and a chop saw. I picked up the exact tubing bender that I still use to this day and well, here I am now. Just instead of paying people to build me stuff, I'd spend that money on tools/equipment and learn on my own.

I built this bumper ages ago... Like seriously, I built one on my exploder and then this friend wanted one on his! HIDEOUS looking back on it now!!!! That's the 2nd thing I ever "fabbed" with the first being the bumper I built on mine.

That seems pretty high!! I only have 43k lol

I use a Millermatic 185 now, but learned on a 252 which is almost cheating. I'd say learn with flux core for now, and later switch to gas when you understand why.

Or start with a TIG setup and let us bet on how long it takes before you drill a hole in your head.

Thanks Jared I'll have to check them out. Except the Comanche, it was on CL last week for $275 or the junkyard. Now this person wants $2600. I don't think so.
