Default Back in the welding saddle

Acquired a new 120v welding machine for various stuff around the house and our place in the woods. It came with a little spool of flux core wire that I figured I'd burn before I got into the whole gas business. Its only been 10+plus years since I've welded and felt it didn't take long to get back into the groove. No more than I want to build I just may skip the gas cylinder rental all together.

1st project was adding some tie downs to my UTV trailer. Next up ground blind frame and some stairs for dads tower stand.

Fairly happy and I don't think I'll have to grind them down.

If you have to grind your welds, you're a grinder, not a welder
