I finally got a welder

Pooh BearJuly 3, 2005

I got a welder, albeit a small welder.

I got it from ebay for $5 + shipping.

This is the welder I bought.

I had to put a plug on the power cord,

and I had to get an electrode clamp for it.

I also got gloves, rods, and an autodarkening helmet.

Today I tested it out. It works just fine.

I used a 1/16 rod on 35 amps and welded a bead across a piece of steel.

It was easier to do than I thought it would be.

Now I just gotta set up an area for welding and find a project.
