For the past few years, I've been considering the purchase of a TIG welder. I had all of the research done, but didn't have time to use it so I postponed the purchase. Now that I have free time again, I bought myself a graduation gift! I picked up a Miller Dynasty 210DX AC/DC TIG welder from cyberweld.com. It's the complete package including a water cooler, I'm happy with it!
"DO NOT DOUBLE STACK"
Luckily the machine inside was fine!
All set up! I haven't had much of a chance to use it yet, but I'm looking forward to getting more practice on the TIG!
In other news, I helped my Uncle Rich build a workbench in his new garage. He broke ground over 2 years ago and it's almost complete! He wanted a sturdy workbench, so I helped him build this.
The first layer is 3/4" MDF glued and screwed into the 2x6 frame.
The second layer is 3/4" birch plywood, bonded in place with Liquid Nails and screwed from the bottom for a smooth work surface.
Next step is a lift, then he's ready for a proper project!
In addition to not working on my Jetta much over the past 3 years, my Rabbit has been getting tired but I didn't have time to research new cars and replace it. I finally pulled the trigger on a new 2018 GTI S! After 10-1/2 years and almost 160,000 miles, rust was taking over the Rabbit and it was time to go. I sold it to Woody, he'll be driving it for the next 10 years!
