TIG Welder

OK, I just joined the club, and my work is totally garage oriented. Like finished and heated space, good windows with lots of light, 20 steps from the kitchen, I work alone with the music on. No, I love working in Vermont at home, and it's all about the family here. My 5 kids all home school, TV FREE, no dope, and church every Sunday. God is real, and very good!

I heard about a TIG welder that somebody made from junk yard parts. I'd like to try that, because I need that capability here. Does anybody have experience with that project? How does it work? OK? I'll find it somewhere around here, but I just wanted to hear some reviews of the tool before jumping into ANOTHER project. You know what I mean.
All the Best! and "Thanks".
Jon Landell

First I want to nominate Henry to be head of the welcoming committee.

Search for the "homemade alternator". It's a lot of work and will take you a lot of time to make it.
