Mig mostly, stick only if I'm outside.

They're great for big projects - but the splatter mess is annoying...

I love my TIG.... Have a Miller Aircrafter....

100 percent duty cycle at 260 amp , 60 percent at 400 amp.

Closed loop cooling system.

Got it from a customer who owed me a favor -- for 1000 bucks... one of my best buys ever...

I can't do it anymore. Last place I worked welding was Gill/Porter building athletic equipment, mostly the retractable basketball nets.

Never did it for a living. I'm just one of those machinists who "think" he can weld...

That said -- I did my syrup pan out of 14 gauge 308 ss, and put baffles on the inside - and heat collectors on the bottom -- 28 inch x 58 inch - and got it flat within 1/8 of an inch.

Without a jig.

RE: The Value of Fashion
I buy my clothes from charity thrift stores like Goodwill because 1) they're already broken in so I don't have to wash them a dozen times to make them comfortable and 2) they have more options in my size than anywhere else 'cause fat dudes die younger and 3) they're cheap. Like free cheap.

RE: The Value of Fashion
My preference would be jeans and t-shirts all the time - bare feet too...but that's not really practical.

I now have to dress better than jeans for work but not super dressy. I have some clothes that I have had for years and years. I tend to cycle them around. They may be in a holding pattern for a couple years till I take them out and match them up with other things.

I have shoes, skirts, and dresses that I have had for years and years. I don't tend to wear clothes out so they last me forever. When my t-shirts get too old and worn to wear out they have a second life as at home only wear.

I wear one piece of jewelry and that's my wedding ring. I am not coherent enough in the morning to try to match up stuff like that. Now and then I will wear a watch and for super special occasions I may dig out a necklace and a pair of earrings...like maybe once a year.

The purse thing baffles me. I find one I like and carry it till is just too awful to carry anymore and that can be a few years. How some women swap purses around is beyond me. Again, like the jewelry, I can't be fussed.

My husband wears things till their original state is barely recognizable.

Re: The Value of Fashion
I typically don't buy clothes new. I see it as a waste of money when I can assemble any wardrobe I like from second-hand sources.

That being said, I wear my clothes till they tear up. I might sew up a favorite pair of pants several times, though.

Never heard it said better.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: The Value of Fashion
Most days I'm a Levi's-and-t-shirt sorta guy. I know how to dress up and look like it belongs on me; I've got a small but nice collection of silk paisley ties and some decent button-ups. I'll shine my cowboy boots if the occasion warrants. I've had this pair of Dan Posts for 7 years, in basic black cowhide, they're comfortable and still look nice.

I don't pay attention to trends or shit like that, never have, never will.

I don't have a problem with wearing stuff into the ground. A good pair of Levi's will see use until threadbare; sometimes a pair of jeans just gets to know me, and I'll keep them until they fall apart, literally. Great for hot summers, having the ventilation there ....
