I know new welders have affected my credit card,a new mig,a new tig & a 3in1. But I pay it off when due. Them & banks don't make a nickel off me. So what do I drag home tonight? A Lincoln Ideal-Arc 300 amp AC, 250amp DC with the round top, round wheel with a knob to infinatly adjust the amps built into a 4 wheel welding cart on wheels & a steel top to weld on,& hooks for the cables. This one didn't affect the card $200/Cash with extra long leads,an extra cord & 4 8" HD BB castors for another project. This thing weighs a ton but it does have the power. Sorry for getting off topic.
"The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich theory of life." Theodore Roosevelt
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. - Ronald Reagan
