Hi, I asked Dominik about it and he said he wasn't interested in Team sports.

What a bum.


On that note, yesterday I took the Blade welder apart and cleaned it up and reset everything to spec's only to find it wouldn't work.

There is a spec for the distance between the Jaws in the clamped postion. This read .200 +/- 0.025. I kept measuring and sure enough it wouldn't even go to this small a measurement. It kept getting caught up on the lever inside. It would go to 0.265 easily enough.

I checked all the specs again. And still it wouldn't work. After some sit down and think about it time. I came to realize the spec's in the manual are wrong.

So, there I was with this thing. Not exactly a light weight unit. And the next you know it dawned on me. Someone must have typed it wrong and it's supposed to read 0.500 +/- 0.025.

I reset it to the 0.500 and reset all the other knicknacks in the order prescibed and low and behold it works great. I was able to weld some 1/2, and 3/4" stock with ease.

Now though I'm afraid, The Powermatic is going else where.

I have a new Machine in the Corral and her Name is BIG Betzy DoALL.

Thank you all who have replied. And I hope this can help others who might happen to end up with one of these excellent Saws.
