    Busy as all get out 'round here............still was able to tackle a little project to help deal with all this white stuff we've been getting.................

    Glad I kept the old manual saw................the Amada is great, but for fab projects the old Wilton still pulls its own............plus I can't cut miters on the Amada......................






    Even got the boy involved.............................



    Gettin' there.....................

    Nice skids, but it needs some fancy paint job.
    Never push snow like that!
    Maybe even Lubriplate on the inside so you don't drag 1/2 yard of snow back inside with you?

    As one who chooses to live where snow does not accumulate, what is that box for? I thought it was a big blower but it looks like you just made a box shovel? Sorry if this question is absurd I just can figure out how this is used or why is it better than a regular curved blade?

    I've never really used a snow pusher until now....................My little tractor as a 7' blower out the back and I was always using the 6' dirt bucket for clean up..............Pondered about a snow bucket, but thought a pusher would serve me better. I use it to clean up next to the buildings..........and on days with only an inch or three of snow(not enough to blow).............the pusher makes for a quick clean up in the yard.

    There..................painted fer ya...........................no racin' stripes or flames though......................

    'round here these are snow pushers. And they do just that..............push snow. Work a bit better than a snow buck(over sized loader bucket for you snow illiterate folks). It digs in less as it just slides across the ground.

    Yeah I've laid down a few beads in my day..............I will say I cheated on these welds. My 350P has pulse...........makes welding pretty darn easy. But if'n I short arc'd them or sprayed them, they would have came out lookin pretty much the same.

    My boy was playing around with the welder and thought it was easy...............tough guy ya know.................yeah, it's easy with pulse. Kinda idiot proof..............I might have to get a tank of straight CO2 and then have him lay some beads...............we'll see how tough he is then..........................

    I find that a 400A 3ph welder with .045 wire makes it childs play to shoot some pretty beads. Something about those old welders that would survive an EMP blast...

    I'm always on the verge of pickin' up and old Miller 450 Deltaweld unit(like I need one )............they practically give 'em away because they are 3PH...............I ended up with a 350P because I wanted a decent rig that would weld Ali like nobody's business................pulsing ALI with a push pull gun is pretty darn sweet..........................

    Sweet looking setup there... got your kid on grinder duty? As far as welders go can you ever have too many? I just got my 3ph CP200 setup with a new feeder, awesome machine. I still want a 350p, and maybe a 180 or 210 to back that up for doing sheet metal work.


    Brandon McCarthy on Instagram: “Another one.... having real 3 phase is the best. Bought this feeder and gun from a local supplier. Came out of a union training house and…”

    I like striking an arc on my engine-drive because it's 3ph output for the welder part, it makes a difference you can feel, even smoother than inverter welders. I've got a giant flat spot Linde VI-400 with matching feeder, 2 inverter welders, and the engine-drive. The inverter mig is okay for most stuff, it glues the metal together fine, but the Linde is a treat to use when I drag it out. I even used it to fix some curb damage to the 14GA stuff they used on my car trailer, I was able to dial it down enough to do that. It's also one of the few welders that can achieve TRUE spray-arc, not globular transfer. I tried that out as soon as I got it and learned that for spray-arc I probably wanted a water cooled mig gun!

    Yeah spryin' gets mighty toasty.................1/16" wire and the amps rockin'...............it's fun(for a little while)..................doin' weldments all day where the thinnest material is 1/2" is a killer, especially in the summer........... Years ago when I worked with my brothers all they had were 450 Deltawelds.................talk about workhorses. And yeah........................dial 'em down for the thin stuff and crank 'em for the heavy plate.

    Boy..............back at 'er..................sure go through a lot of soft jaws when you jump to double vises........Prolly 80 pair when I'm done............. Moving a ton of repeat work to the 4 Orange units. And I'll be adding two more smaller doubles to the VF2. This batch should last a little while.




    Super hard to be back in the shop after a few days of this...........................................had some powder days. It was awesome.............good times with the fam..................

    The first time I had to swap set-ups in 10 double vises (change out all 40 jaws) I was pretty not happy.
    I never even considered the Carve-Smart jaws before that day, LOL
