 Finally Bought a Welder

From my other postings where I was initially looking at a mig welder, I ended up buying a very nicely kept used Miller 250DX tig welder with the running package (H2O torch cooler, gas rack, wheels and handles on the welder). I have been looking for used equipment for a while, I stumbled on this excellent package (ton of accessories included; electrodes, argon cylinder filled, ton of fill wire/ rods, nozzles, collets, helmet, etc) on craigslist.com. It appears the gentlemen that was selling the equipment tried his hand at fabrication but it wasn't his thing, so lucky me Smile

Now I am continuing my tig lessons at work where we have an old (1968) tig welder (no HF or square wave etc.) from my certified friend. I am getting OK with the basics with DCEN, and boy I am glad I went the tig route, because I just need the control that tig has, from welding razors blades sharp end to sharp end to welding heavier gauge basic mild steel or aluminum for my tractor applications, tig is the way to go for me.

Thanks for your input folks from my previous postings!

 Finally Bought a Welder

Looking forward to designing some attachments and building them. I need to polish my skills with SolidWorks (3D modeling software). I plan on designing and building a 3pt forks for moving supplies, wood, etc. around as a simple initial project.
