Flame on girls, I've explained myself 28 times, if you don't see my point by now then it's a waste of time so I'm done.

carry on,
JTMcC.

We spliced some columns on top of a building running SA200's, dials wide open. We used huge rods, seems like 7/32 or something. At first I didnt think those little machines would push them but they did, rod after rod as fast as you could put them in all day. It was in the middle of winter though, about 10 degrees out, 20 on a good day, they really groaned but kept right on it, probably would have cooked lesser machines. If I was headed out to buy a new machine today I personally would be looking at a Trailblazer 300A though. I am kinda up there with the old fart, I havnt got much desire to weld all day but the TB looks like it would do darn near everything, might even make lunch if you ask it nicely.

Ease up,
I wasn't being defensive at all, I was just stating MY situation.
I USED to run a machine 8-12hrs 5-7days a week. Now I do not.
I can have 300amps in a small package. I wouldn't compare it to a 110v mig, But it is a small machine. would I head cross country welding with a 2cyl? NO WAY
I just offered a real world take on a particular machine that has seen some hard use. Tons of hours? No. but hard use
Seems a lot of threads are turning to arguments these days.
Enjoy your life
Jeff

At 6pm Eastern DST, we will all face Lost Wages Nevada, on our knees, and place our foreheads on the ground chanting JT McCracken is always RIGHT 19 times.
After doing that, we'll all begin wondering how JT SuperPipeliner has so damn much time to post on this board the last couple months, since he should be out there burnin rods.
