Beenaway,

I've heard both opinions (let 'em freeze, don't let 'em freeze) and just figured I'd play it safe. Maybe after I have the fridge out there over this next summer I'll just leave it. Thanks for passing along your first hand experience.

Sweet shop, sweet truck......Its nice to have some natural light with the big windows. (I'd have bars or Lexan on mine though) How come the tropies aren't front and center on the living room fireplace mantle????

Actually, when that picture was taken, I had three welders. The Miller is a new 175 mig which has now become my daily workhorse. I also have a Lincoln 225 buzz box for monster stuff (1/4" or bigger). The third one is a Century 85 Amp, 110 volt, wire feed which now has a proud new owner, HR.Com's own "Schnitz".

And Gearhead,

We just plum ran out of "trophy" space in the house. I kinda like these in the shop...but I have to hose them down every once in a while because of all the dust and debris they collect. And speaking of dust and debris, I had to relocate my CD player to the other section of the garage (not shown in the pictures) and pipe the music in. The dust kept clogging the lens so bad it would just stop playing and I got sick of taking it apart and cleaning it off every day or two.

I'm sorry, I know I'm from the south, but taking a fridge inside for the winter is just hilarious! The refridgerant shouldn't freeze, maybe the defrost drain lines? The compressor shouldn't run to much. As long as it's in an enclosed space where no wind gets around it there should be no fear of freezing. If the compressor area is open in the back close it in with a piece of cardboard, at least in the winter. That will hold heat generated by the compressor in under the fridge and should prevent freezing up. A fridge is just a bit bigger than I want to move around, but I bet you have one of those half size or smaller fridges...

No kidding... The least that we should see is a pic of his favorite cold beverage in the fridge.


In a while, Chet.
