What?!!? Maybe I need to double check the CC here. Co-worker kid here took one. I want to say it was at least double that. Covered MIG, TIG, and stick. I don't remember if it came with a cert at the end of it or not. If it comes with a cert I understand the price. But I don't need/want TIG and stick much less a cert.

So far I've just been trying to run straight beads since I'm a total newb, but I hope to someday graduate to sticking two pieces of metal together.
Fairly easy but then I've no idea how well they are stuck together. Doesn't come apart after beating it with a hammer.

If you do come down, use the Rte 715 Gate. The GPS will take you to the Rte 22 Gate if you're driving a 40 foot school bus!! Trucks (large) are only allowed thru the 715 Gate even tho the clearance is 14 1/2 ft by 10 ft at the 22 Gate. Visitors' Center is at the 715 Gate and is open until 6 pm. You'll need DL and registration. After 6 pm you just drive thru the gate with a DL. Makes no sense but there's the right way, wrong way, and the Army way.

She's not good with Fri but she's coming down. Long story but she hates my daughter and she hates her neighbor in PA. With good reason for both. So we are on for Fri!!

Huh, I never saw this back in the day. Thanks for the offer! I'm pretty well-endowed with clecos now, though.

ECCB helped with mine, too.

Clecos are wonderful! I wouldn't do any other way.

Lots of useful info can be found in these old threads. Some just, ha. Definitely worth digging around.
Have you read the "Old Harold" thread? Poor Mildred.....

I like to think I've at least figured out the roof hatch delete. Lol

Looking great, man!
