I am now an owner of my second Tombstone, I gave my first one away to my now former stepson, who did mot appreciate my generosity. So now I have a shinny new one.

It is still the greatest stick welder made, it's the one that many of us learned on and many of us have spent years working with.

Very cool, where did you pick it up?

I recently bought a used bobcat and the fellow who sold it to me had an old tombstone sitting in the corner. He saw me looking at it and said, "You want that, I'll give it to you. It doesn't work but it probably wouldn't take much to fix it." It was missing a line plug and cables but, for free, I took it. I checked continuity with an ohm meter and everything seemed to be okay so I hooked up some cables, installed a line plug and fired it up. I have to agree with Jerry, I had forgotten how much a good stick machine can be. I used it to build a trailer for the bobcat.

Great welders, hard to beat. I still got one I use from time to time
