Lawnmowerforum sent me an email and I signed up. I have an extremely cheap mig, flux core only welder and I have not practiced much with it. I would love to try a few small projects with it but haven't come up with too many to do. I bought it because I had three little projects to do: mower deck, small bracket for a spiral staircase, and repair to a small metal table. It was just as cheap to buy the welder as it was to take these projects to a shop. I'll be lurking and watching what others do.
