But the Handler 140 by Hobart is a VERY respected machine and will fit my needs just fine. Will be great for bus projects and trailers.
I suppose I should move to a wire welder some day, I currently have an old arc welder (Foeney) that dad bought right after the war when he broke a driveline on an old truck. He had the drive line out and on the ground by the barn when a salesman pulled in and was selling welders.
Dad said he asked if it could fix his driveline, the salesman welded the yoke back to a functional part and dad bought the welder, a book on how to weld, 50 pounds of nickel rod and a welding shield.
Same welder I learned to weld with in grade school with dad instructing after I read the book.
My neighbor calls it a buzz box
Perhaps I should step into something newer than WW.II. technology like you are using.
