Default That New Welder Smell In The GNAP’s Shop

The title says it all, there is a new welder smell in the GNAP’s shop. After roping Norm into getting the new snowblower (Jasper is dead, long live Jasper), we ate at the Chinese Buffet, then went to the LWS, I gave them the old (possibly dead) Maxstar 200, they gave me the new Maxstar 210 STR. I got it home, installed the electrical plug, then plugged it in and started it up. So far so good, that new welder smell has permeated the shop, I’m almost excited. The welder’s first arc in anger will be at a gas piping job, next week.

How about Phil A. Buster. No it couldn't be that, a welder actually gets something done. Are welders apolitical?
