Got a new Hobart 125 EZ gasless wire welder for 150.00, used once on a project, with 2 full spools of wire. I have a real nice cart to put it on after a little fab work. I also cut off the old broken jack on the trailer and welded a new one on. Tomorrow I pick up a HUGE welder with a 12 hp Tecumseh engine on it, 40 gal+ tank 2cast iron air cylinder, well over 400 lbs, for FREE. Motor needs a carb, no problem. i got teh rest of the prep work done on the JD214 deck clean and rearranged all the tractors to fit in the barn, shop garage. I did all this after 3pm, had to work for a couple of hours, cause it's a Toosday.

The second "welder" wasn't a welder, but a air compressor. H160 or H180 engine with overhead valves, 2 stage cast iron bink compressor, it took four big guys to load it in the van. I think any 10 hp or larger Tecumseh carberator will fit. Oh yeah wired to the motor was a tag and receipt of a complete engine rebuild on the Tecumseh, seems as the PO stole the carb for a cement mixer right after the rebuild.
