Is there any point to a 110V welder? I'm thinking it may be a good a idea for any project and don't see a reason not to have one. The whole 220V thing though would require a new outlet in the garage.

Ok, I bought this on impulse from HF today open box for $70. Reading other forums they mostly say stay away but I'm not looking for much. I have it for a month, I was thinking of getting new fluxcore since that's the #1 recommendation during my trial period. I mostly want it for small stuff, auto body work, maybe a BBQ pit later down the road and other various light duty things (end tables, random crap). Given the fact I know I won't be using it heavily, is it still worth it?

My local craigslist doesn't have anything of interest below the $200 mark, that's why I like the idea of this one.

Are there are any good tips for angle grinders? I picked up a HF orange one and it seems the cutting wheels wear out in the center first and fall off. I picked up some from Home Depot and they seemed to last just as long.

On another note, I'm about to start replacing panels on my CJ, whats the best thing for cutting them out? I have a reciprocating saw, a jig saw and the angle grinder to use. I'm trying to get a band saw for the cutting patches.

Tin snips tend to bend the metal and i don't have a good place to clamp the metal for the cut off wheel. The alternative is the band saw which in this case is free.

HF pipe wrench, I wasn't even abusing it at the time, just trying to get a square nut. I got a nasty scrap on my elbow when it snapped.

I'm the guy who has to keep our plant specification collection up to date. Sometimes they work out at $50+ per page.

This is why a subscription to IHS Standards Experts is great, just keep a reference copy of everything around. I have no idea how much it costs, but I bet its a lot.

Whats the best place I can get some heavy duty torx drivers? T40 specifically for removing a 30 year old differential cover.
