    New guy from southeastern PA

    Hey all, my name is Matt, I'm 38 years old and live in Southeast Pennsylvania. I've been trolling this board soaking up all the information I can get my hands on for the last couple years, you could definitely call me an information junky.

    I've been interested in welding in one way or another since I was 13. I started off with oxy-acetylene, I then bought a Lincoln sp125 mig when I was 19. Then about two years ago I got an Eastwood tig 200 AC/DC, and NOW, I just got my hands on my new favorite toy a 19070's round-top Lincoln Idealarc AC/DC 250/250. This new toy is my main reason for posting here now. I have been fascinated with stick welding and am thrilled to be stick welding again for the first time since Jr. High school.

    My goal is to post some pics and get advice on what I'm doing either right or wrong. I look forward to everyone's advice and honest opinions.

    Matt

    Hello Matt,
    I just retired from the Navy and am looking for a house in SE Pennsylvania. I'll be working in the Navy Yard. Right now, we are staying in Malvern (Chester County). We are hoping to settle in Media (Delaware County). I've got a bunch of welding equipment sitting in storage right now waiting for me to move in and get settled. I might hit you up when I get my shop set up.
