Good to know about the arc'd area needing grinding. I suspect the molten slag that I couldn't get off might pose a problem in a weld area that was crucial for strength/support. In this case w/the plow frame, I added gussets around the joint to prevent additional stress cracks from occuring & I welded up the area.

Approx how many amps were you running with the tied welders? The Esseti is great in that it can run 380 amps @ 100% duty cycle & 500amp at 60% duty cycle...I think I could run 3/8 without needing my Lincoln RS325am power unit tied in...BUT if I did tie it in, I'd have over 800amp at my disposal....Oh, this could be fun!

Hi Mike, so after all this time how did you make out with the Esseti?

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
