Ducky, does CC/ CV mean constant current/constant voltage. That would make that a very versatile power plant for all sorts of DC welding.

But can you pick it up to move it? That must be pretty darn heavy, but I can see where it sure would be nice to have.


That thing hasn't moved in 28 years.

A lot of good Ideas, I appreciate everyone sharing. Looks like my problem maybe space, I don't have a very big shop so maybe make a lean too and put a table out there. I'll have to think about it. Thanks

Bill, I don't have much space either. I am thinking of making a portable table that I can use for other things when not welding. I think I'll make it to work as a piece of my workbench in the garage.

I is just kiddin. Nothing special on the setup except a really old Forney stick welder. The MIG is no big shakes but it's mine. I like seeing all the other stuff that guys use to clamp, hold, and all. Good ideas. I generally use a bunch of different clamps and just a vice for tack welding, then I do finish welding on jack stands of all things.

My Dad had one of these one the farm back in the '50s. Learned to weld with one of those
