  • advCo: I leave at 6:50, get in at 7. Leave at 5
    Nov 20, 2018, 10:49:07
  • advCo: Nobody is starting any projects the few days beforeThanksgiving though, so we're twiddling our thumbs.
    Nov 20, 2018, 10:49:35
  • advCo: Weird, I can't find the small needle bearings inside the crankcase halves on the parts fiche for the z50. Hmm
    Nov 20, 2018, 11:29:38
  • Hurco550: its one of them fancy invisible ones
    Nov 20, 2018, 14:00:04
  • advCo: I hate those
    Nov 20, 2018, 14:52:46
  • Hurco550: im currently spending all my fun monies on neglected maintenance items for my truck. Idler arm, pitman arm, master cyl, u joints, nicopp brake line etc etc. should be good for a few more years once i fix those though until the next thing shits the bed
    Nov 20, 2018, 15:23:48
  • JustinLonghorn: I am still debating a new welder purchase. It's either that or I put money into the two chop builds.
    Nov 20, 2018, 15:27:53
  • Hurco550: welder first. the chops will come and go, welder is a good investment

    Nov 20, 2018, 15:53:49
  • JustinLonghorn: I am either going to buy that or an Eastwood Mig 185
    Nov 20, 2018, 15:54:03
  • JustinLonghorn: [link]
    Nov 20, 2018, 15:54:11
  • JustinLonghorn: Sorry, 175
    Nov 20, 2018, 15:54:44
  • SONIC.: Get the miller. Eastwood is a great machine until something goes wrong, then you're shit out of luck. Been there done that. I've been slowly replacing mine with miller and Lincoln because literally zero shops will work on the Eastwood if something goes wrong, and eastwood doesn't even have electrical schematics for their welders
    Nov 20, 2018, 16:03:45
  • Hurco550: agreed with that statement
    Nov 20, 2018, 16:05:34
  • advCo: I would like a spool gun. I have the HF MIG 170 and its been a great machine. Bought it in '14 and haven't had a single issue. Granted, I don't weld every day but I've laid quite a bit of bead with it.
    Nov 20, 2018, 16:28:19
  • Kamn: Afternoon Folks, what about the Vulcan series at HF?? They are made by hobart IRK. And I want to get the spool gun for the mig i have
    Nov 20, 2018, 16:58:03
  • Kamn: sorry, I meant IRC
    Nov 20, 2018, 16:58:36
  • advCo: Whats up kamn
    Nov 20, 2018, 17:30:07
  • Kamn: not much, long day and I finally received the coil module for the cx500, maybe i can get it finished up tonight and out of hair this week
    Nov 20, 2018, 17:56:58
  • Kamn: how you doing advCo?
    Nov 20, 2018, 17:57:11
  • Hurco550: vulcan is not made by hobart. In fact, hobart and miller are owned and produced by the same parent company. Hobart is that companies economy line while the miller brand is their commercial line. If i remember correctly, the vulcan line is made by a company out of Indiana
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:06:49
  • Kamn: Ahh, I had read somewhere that they were made by hobart .....maybe they meant hobart copy.
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:09:48
  • advCo: I got the Chicago electric MIG. Proudly made by China
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:09:59
  • advCo: Pretty good man trying to make it through the work day. Weather is decent so I'm going to head home and try and get some metalwork on the Bus knocked out
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:11:17
  • Kamn: hell yeah, that bus needs to be driven
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:36:20
  • Kamn: I still say you drop a 911 motor and tranny in it
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:36:39
  • advCo: Ha, its early so its designed around the type 1 doghouse motor. It'd be less work to put a subie in it
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:40:55
  • Kamn: that sound good as well, Jap it up. Maybe AWD it??
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:47:09
  • advCo: Lol, you fab up a drivetrain for me and I'll do it
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:50:13
  • Kamn: if I lived anywhere close to you, I would be there with  my tools to help you get it fabbed up
    Nov 20, 2018, 18:53:33
