A+ score on a big$ item. Can't tell if you got a gas bottle or not. If not, I'd recommend getting a gas bottle and solid core wire and you're ready for some quality, clean welding.

BTW, I just use my CO2 from my kegging system and it works just fine on mild steel. I believe stainless welding needs tri-mix to work well.

That's great! I didn't even think to use my co2 tank.... I have been looking around and the local welding shops (we have a lot in Tulsa) will rent the co2 argon out for a 50$ deposit. I also found some full welding arms for 20 bucks ? Not sure if that's a good deal or not?

Co2 does not make as nice of a weld as 75 25 but it will do in a pinch...by full welding arms do u mean leathers? Mig isnt that hot...a long sleave tshirt is more that enough....if u do any stick welding id definitely recemond leathers, but it is like buying used underwear...lol you dont know what kind of funk the previous user sweated into them imo

We drafted Westbrook too, just sayin. Yep, we are very excited about the new arena deal here in town, looks like NBA and NHL are both in our future.

Anyway..

Enjoy your awesome welder and steel hookup, you'll have a badass stand before you know it!
