Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Well I wish there was a red faced embarrassed emoji, seems my problems were self inflicted. Back when I installed my spool gun I reversed the polarity on the ground and then after taking the spool gun off and selling it I forgot to change it back. This getting old thing sucks

I'll take the "getting old" stuff over the alternative.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Glad you figured it out. We've all made similar mistakes. I wish I could remember half the stuff I've forgotten.

Yup buying a new welder was not in the budget.

Dozer, I'm on the same page as you are on the 'getting older thing', it's not for sissies. But I do have a question for you. You talked about trying a spool gun out and then taking off and selling it, so I assumed you didn't like it. Why? I always thought it would be a good idea.
