Your weld looks a lot better than my duct tape. [emoticon]

Love it

Especially the unlimited lifetime, no questions asked, warranty. I have a couple of those warranties from "someone" who did some work as well. Only time it will expire is when he does (grin).

Nice job.

I can still run a respectable looking bead! But I can no longer see the joint so over an inch or so I start to wander around, LOL

I use my neighbors $100 HF machine, it is an DC welder, I do not care for the DC and the wire that came with it is ****. If I want something to be strong and look good I pay to have it done.

JJR,
We all get older and the eyes lose the close focus they used to have, so look up:
Welding Magnifier Plates. (also called "cheaters" in the trade)
They cost about 10$ and you can get a diopter that you use for your reading glasses. They go inside the hood.
Matt - who has several.
