Default I hit the DIY JACKPOT!

Im having a good week. I went to a local pawn shop to buy a 110 lincoln mig welder and a guy walks in to sell his hobart 187 handler welder that was brand new!!! He asked for 100 bucks and the pawn guy accepted (Quickly). I overheard an offered the pawn shop 150 bucks and he greatly accepted!! THEN my neighbor heard me cutting my new keggles and asked me what i was doing. When I told him I was building a brewery he asked if he could help. I offered him a beer and he told me he has had 1/8 inch square steel tubing sitting in his garage for over a year. I asked to buy it and he told me i could have it for 5 gallons of homebrew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great week! ill be posting some updates on the stand!

I have no experience/knowledge of welding so I really have no idea what you are talking about but that sounds like a sweet day!

WOW, that is awesome! Nice find. You must have been saving up some serious karma!

I've been watching craigslist for a similar welder for quite a while now, and planning paying.. well a lot more than that!
