Default Wahoo the toys are home! + Building my own TIG cooler

My little tig came home today! (Its not that little....)

I have been "Calling my tools back" from the shops and friends who have borrowed them. Sadly I do not have my shop re wired yet, so my friends dad got me a 75ft 8gauge 4wire extension cord for free. I hope its enough to temporarily wire it up to finish a project.

One nice surprise was it came back with a new water cooled micro torch off a Dynasty 200 (I believe). So I need to get my butt in gear and toss together this TIG cooler I have been scrounging parts for. I still have a Procon pump, just need to make a reservoir and radiator +fan setup.

Now if I could just find some free time

+1 on the free time. It always seems to be in short supply or the ambition to use said free time. Is that the smiling face of a classic Buick I see peeking out from under that tarp?

Better yet, I dig Desotos and Hudsons. Dad's first car was a Hudson Terraplane.
