Any Taryl fixes all fans here ? After watching one of his videos I decided to build my own repair stand.

I was happy with my welds until I got to the jaws on the clamp and then I boogered it up as long as they hold I'm happy.

Or a lighter shade lens for mig. Should be using #10. Being able to see will definitely improve your welds.

So,,I watched the video on trimmer holder. Did I make one? NO!  Trimmer was leaning on work bench, fell over and broke handle. However on a positive note YOUTUBE showed me how to clean muffler screen(did not know there was one) as well fuel filter was plugged so replaced that. Trimmer runs great now. I can fix the handle easily enough.

Should've made one then  :poke: . My last trimmer repair was a clogged fuel filter.

By the way the holder I made out of square tubing didn't work to good so I use the repair stand in the vice.
