lucky bastard! Heres a real generic question that i think somebody like you may be especially able to answer (all though if I'm wrong just say so) How much should it be to get a decent TIG welder for automotive use. I'll be taking the TIG class next semester, Even though i can weld any position with MIG very well, due to proper training, and i've pretty much decided on completely abandoning the idea of a high quality MIG welder after finding out all the benefits of TIG.

Otto, I'm sure no expert but I've seen TIG Welders as low as about $950.00 US Dollars, however my friends that are experts all claim what you're paying for in any great TIG Welder is the "Power Supply" (expensive part) that this power supply is what really delivers great " repeatable consistancy" in quality welding.

I don't know, I'm just repeating what I've been told and I know how to MIG & TIG Weld well enough to get by (self taught, no school) that's all.

Congratulations man, your Miata is certainly deserving of some air time.

Did he get rid of his mullet? What a shame :lol:. I used to watch TRUCKS! every Sunday; Stacey certainly seemed to know his shit. Heh, he inspired me to tackle my old Chevy pickups rusty rocker panel and destroyed transmission tunnel.

No, not yet.

There was some talk about somebody to try posting it on U-Tube.

That episode is supposed to re-air again sometime this week, check your local scheduling.

Nice car and nice slalom run. You can tell that you're really concentrating hard from that look in your eyes.

I like the host's dog. Shelties ftw.

Yup Jacob, I have to concetrate that hard, because after years I'm still not that good, lots of seconds and third places, a few 1sts, but no class champ at years end.

I'm always gettin' beat by some young punk takin' advantage of a grandpa!

I'm kidding, I love Auto-X and Roadracing. I just hope I can keep on doing it forever like Paul Newman!

He cut it off at one point and had a relativly normal haircut, but old habbits die hard I guess.
