Thing is when you start using the machine you will probably never even look at the LEDs, if you hit a limit a look at the table will tell you as much ;)

Oh well I better get back to trying to weld alu in the gale :(

Yes, have seen that stuff before, never used it but it should be fine for small DIY repairs but cant see how it is really welding if the parent metal doesnt get melted, more brazing I would say.
Regardless it would get kind of expensive and extremely slow, to weld the stuff I do, with that method, imagine how much of it and how long it would take to join all this stuff together ;D

Ooooooooooo .....  :o
I'd tie that "swarf napping" dog to that pile !
Probably close to the cost of platinum there.  :)

Are you doing railings and such .... or plumbing ?

Miggin' in the wind. Been there, what a PITA that is. Especially with aluminum.

Ha ha well its £5000 plus ($8000 approx) for that lot, thankfully I got paid for it a few days after it arrived.

Making up wash beds and drums for bag nets for  a Salmon Fisheries.  www.usansalmon.com The nets need cleaned regularly so get brought ashore and they will pull them across these beds and power wash then gradually roll them onto drums, once  finished the full drum will be taken up to the drying green and hung up to dry. You will see pics in the above link of the nets in the gallery and think the vid has the beds they use at the moment. The drums will be hydraulic driven now they just haul them into big bins manually.
Pic attached of what I have managed so far but the wind is killing me :(  Notice the dog looking at the stone expecting me to throw it for him.

I think he's a herding dog. Get him a few more rocks and he'll keep himself busy rounding them up ;D

Poor dog. He'd probably wait all day just like that waiting for you to throw it too right ?

Ha ha  think it would be a bit sloppy for a router and no, none going spare, think I will have to get more :D

Thanks for cheering me up, just back from the welding supplies and the wind is screaming and rain blowing through :(
Should manage to do some of it inside though as I will start on the drums frame.
