Default A no-firearm project . . . sad but true

Been busy working on a bunch of other stuff, less time for this forum

We decided to move the garden to a new spot in the spring. I have started to prepare the new plot but needed a new tool!

And a new tool can build more tools!


We are on the border of valley loam and glacial till. I have both.

I needed to get the rocks out of the garden area so we can rototill each year.

I built the grizzly with my new Lincoln Electric WeldPak 125 HD Flux Core Wire Feed Welder (the new tool!) .. ...

A few shots

I don't have the gas kit yet, but like the flux core wire feed.
Since I hadn't welded since high school (well .. a little stick welding last year), not much to complain about.

Maturity seems to have helped, even with no practice. I suppose it's patience and a better understanding of the process. Didn't say that I didn't study it, just no practice.

Everthing that I have done with the Weld-Pak has been 3/16 to 1/4 mild steel. No sheet metal yet. Don't even have a project possibility in mind.

Most of my planned use is to fix tractor implements that I am too rough on.
I welded the split weldings on the rotary cuttyer deck, the spindle on my rake and the most interesting, replacement pins that hold the rake tines.

I selected this unit based on a relatives 'Weld-Pak' recommendation and the fact that this particular unit was $300 as a returned/refurbished unit at a Home Depot. Seemed like enough of a good deal for now.
