Sorry Lyall, great looking welder. Bet it serves the purpose rather well.

I'm sorry. I just couldn't resist. You guys can kick me out whenever you want - no hard feelings.
Looks like a good solid arc welder.

I should have moved the Kitty litter!
good catch Cookiemonster
Yes it a good welder for me for what I can do. I started weld again after 40 years of not having a welder.
Had my brother and the friend weld for me. Now it is me fault if the weld breaks.

:wave:Hey guys. Here are some pics of my welding setup. My bench is messy right now because I have not used it for a couple of months. I have an old Hobart AC unit which does an awesome job. Also have a small wire welder for sheet metal repairs. Not pictured because it is hidden under the bench. I like the magnetic clamps but also use vicegrip type and C clamps and the corner clamp pictured. I have several other light duty 90 degree clamps and a pair of heavy duty ones as well. My power outlet is beside the shop man door so the cable pictured on the back of the welder cart lets me weld up to 65ft. out in the driveway. The bare stand pictured is waiting for a small vice so it too can be used out in the driveway when needed. I also have a small set of Harris welding and cutting torches. Dave

Hi Dave, Let me welcome you here first of and then tell you that is a nice setup. AC and wire and you can do anything. Love all the clamps and Mags. They are get tools.

I hope Dave spends more time here. It would be a bonus for all of us.
Those old welders have a lot of copper in them and can take a lot more abuse then the newer stuff. Something you can pass along to the kids. I noticed your C-clamps and had to smile. I have a bunch of different vise grips and I still find myself using the C-clamps. There are times when nothing else will work.

Need to get me one of those right angle clamp thingies. I've been doing that with 2 pieces of angle iron and it sucks. Good stuff. I'm getting a lot of ideas out of these posts.

Thanks guys for all the input. It's good to see all the different clamps. That's one thing I haven't picked up yet. I have a few C clamps and f clamps but I've got to pick up some of those magnetic jobs.
