    ^Who hacked Mikey's account? Lol..hey man!

    Yeah, I can't wait to have a shop to use. I have a shed at the house but most of the stuff in it is business stuff...plans, files, paint, tools, etc. It's gonna be sweet to have just house stuff at the house and a shop to go mess around on projects. Especially being able to do projects regardless of the weather.

    I'll need some help picking out a welder soon.


    Still stoked. I'll maybe get some inside pics on Saturday. Its been empty since '06 so ill probably gut a lot of it and try to rent it to the State for storage. Renting part will pay the entire mortgage.

    It's hot AF here and being in an metal building without power and no fans/AC isn't happening so I didn't go inside when I took the pics.

    I have a Miller 250 TIG, and my neighbor has a Miller 250 MIG, both are awesome.
    Both older machines, so they are the big style, compared to these new mini units.
    My chassis guys TIG is amazing!!!!!!

    Gordo, you should start a thread on The Garage Journal of your new place. The folks there would love it!

    Not that we don't, that place is just like the nastyZ of garages and DIY stuff. ;)

    Always nice when you can take advantage of OPM (Other People's Money) to acquire goodies for yourself and not be out of pocket!
