    Hell yeah! Everything else you got is pretty damn nice too Scott

    I have a thread I'm going to post on an ongoing upgrade to my air delivery service I just finished, but we're going to breakfast and it's gonna take awhile to copy paste everything and add the pix so it'll just have to wait!

    A fitting start tho

    It's funny I am posting a Miller unit.. But I do say it's sure does have a lot of Esab in it.. (Esab Super switch= Miller Chopper in arc quality) You know Miller, and Lincoln (others too) have rooms full of other peoples equipment. Pretty sure Miller has a few 450-260 Esabs in the back room somewhere. Glad they did not copy the Lincoln.. I kind of got clued in when I saw the local Miller rep buying a bunch of Esab Plasma's, just to send off to Miller for a look.. Another Airgas Guy I sort of know, went for a tour at a Lincoln factory.. Opened the wrong door, and it was chocked full of all sorts of Miller/etc machines..

    I wish Lincoln/Hypertherm/Esab/Miller would post their secret shops in this thread..

    PS-sold off my Plasma, so now looking to replace it.. Going to wait just a bit, to see if anyone releases a new machine. (Maybe) Although there are mature designs that will work just fine.. Thinning the herd a bit, and probably will just end up with the Shopmate for my only mig machine.. Makes sense, because I can always borrow a small portable mig, if I need one.. Otherwise the Shopmate sits, and the Tweco gets used.The Shopmate supports CV mig from my LN-25 pro, something You cannot do with the 211i.. Does not allow the contactor to be jumped like the Miller.. Plus the blue one will run .045 dual-shield wire way better. both weld excellent though, and very similar.
