Bought a Welder and First Project

By: David 07/14/2020

I finally did it, I finally bought a welder. I bought a cheapo but I made sure it was a true 240v. But also I didn't have 240v in the garage so I had to put one in and unluckily my Panel Box was on the other side of the house so that was a bit of a chore to get it to the garage but it turned out nice.

I watched a ton of welding videos and now I ready to give it a go. I'm sure I'm going to be a pro at this in minutes.

Okay that was little bit more difficult than welding on a nice flat table.

But a little sanding and some paint and it doesn't look that bad.
