  • New Esab

    My once all blue fleet seems to be yellowing a tad. My new Esab Migmaster 250 Plus came in today. I didn't get much time on it...maybe 5 minutes, but it looks like it will certainly fill the bill. Hit spray with C-8 after one adjustment...a hot spray, too. Had the burnback adjusted wrong and pluged a tip as well. ...only have one more, too. I best get after that problem. I can't buy these suckers at TSC. This thing will take some getting used to. For one thing they put the wire drive on the worng side. I wonder how many times I'll open the trunk before I get used to it.

    That's awesome Don! That's a wide load for sure. You'll have trouble pulling THAT through the drive-through at the bank. Oh... wait - as many machines as you've been buying, there's probably nothing left to go to the bank for anyway!

    I'm envious! Look forward to finding out how that mamajama runs compare to Blue.

        Congrats Don,

        Looks like a "hoss" of a machine.

        I can see one of the first things you're going to need to do. Build a stand to get it a little higher off the ground. That on/off switch on the bottom of the unit would play **** with us old guys.

        What's next on the tool list? Maybe a big ol plasma cutter?

            Thanks, guys.

            Zrexx, I think I'll keep this one in the shop. Plus, I'll have some money once I sell my MM210, T'bolt and Bobus. Just doesn't seem right to sell all that blue.

            Roy, you have a one track mind.

            Jay, that switch is a low one...strange. Hey, I'm just glad its on the fornt. The Heliarc 252's switch is on the back of the unit...stranger. No tools on the list yet. Momma is playing ball right now. I best not push it.

                  I forgot about my tig unit, so I am still in the house. The little 250 plasma is a long term loan and could be mine with a trade or two.

                      Don, redemption is only a lathe away. Might as well make the jump now while the wife is in a good mood...blame me if you need a scapegoat.

                        Well, the good mood would be short lived if I got a lathe.....or if I got the evil black rifle I was looking at today.

                          Better get that "evil black rifle" soon. In another six months, you won't be able to...

                            Yeah, I know. I really don't want to buy one that badly. Fire, sure, why not...own...hmmm. I'd be much happier with a Ruger Mini 30 probably and another pistol or two. I did get 300 rounds of 9mm since I was there.
