Went to look at the local welding shop...I want to support them but they are SOOO much more expensive then the internet prices.
$1800+tax vs $1400 for the welder.
$240+tax vs $185 for the helmet
$455 saved by buying online...I just can't pass that up. I'll be renting my gas tank from them at least though and buying the protective clothing. Ordering welder next Thursday (waiting for new CC billing cycle). Need to figure out how I am going to get it delivered since it needs to be unloaded from the back of the truck by someone (freight delivery) - weighs 180lbs. Perhaps I'll try and have it delivered to my work.
Times like this I miss my old Job where we constantly had LARGE items shipping in/out all the time. In fact they ship so much they paid for my shipping when I had an axle shipped there. They just said "don't bother paying us, it is more work to collect the money from you then it is worth"
I might go play up on Switzerland this weekend...Depends on the weather since it is kind of going downhill. I desperately need to get under my Jeep and strip off all of the bolts and inspect the control arm bushings. Getting some nice clunks which are getting worse.
Just need to get it filled up and some hose/fittings for it. I played around with mounting it a few ways in the back of my Jeep but am not satisfied with anything quite yet. Sounds like a project for my welder - make a custom bracket for it
Painted my diff cover - all ready to go on:
Can also see my new 1/2" drill (well the box)
My camera is having trouble focusing ever since my GF dropped it a couple feet onto the snow while skiing ~1 month ago
