    If breaks free just use JB Weld it look great. Just do not stand under the shelf

    Stopped at a country store a couple days ago and saw this on the bollard pipes protecting the gas pumps. Oh yeah, they're well protected.

    A few more coats of paint, the gap will close.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    What is that, Bondo on there to smooth over the 'weld' ?

    Likely hit, weld tore open, repaired (sort of), several times.
    * Amico MIG-130A Flux, Dual Voltage. Truly portable!
    * HF MIG-180 with all the mods. Heavy.
    * Grizzly H8153 Stick/Tig 130/160.
    * Wards PowrKraft AC-230. Stick & carbon arc.

    I would fill with welding.
    May be E6013 or E71T-11 or even brazing.

    One I work in construction and E7018 runs smoother hot.
    If read all technical notes and do not heat why use E7018, just a different rod not so fussy like E7016 or E6013 no heat need.

    Plasma fail.... yea, this is what happens to the consumables when you get in a hurry and forget to open both valves to the air supply. They become consumed.

    It’s a good thing they are cheap cost consumables.

    Re: Welding Fail! post pics here.

    I have a couple used consumables laying around myself. Think I’m saving them for when I run out and need to order but the used ones will work well enough to separate two pieces quickly. I have yet to ever see the machine tell me the consumables need changed. Perhaps I don’t use them long enough to the point of meltdown. I still need a water separator etc for optimum clean dry air. ATM I just have the motorguard paper filter canister thing.

    I just had that same discussion with myself. I think only the ceramics could be used again, so everything else is going. Questionable tips are only going to be hard on the machine.

    Here's a tight one,

    Attachment 1733396

    This happened when I tripped over a hose, stepped all the way down on the pedal, and put my torch hand down on the aluminum by accident. I Didn't think it was that stuck, so I quickly flicked my wrist to free the tungsten.
    ooops.... Oh well got plenty of green tungsten left (lots came with the machine) This is the aluminum block I use to test to make sure everything is OK before I weld on an important piece. Good thing my torch didn't land on the top of the cabinet, at 250 amps there would probably be a big hole.

    My step son bought a gym several months ago. Things have been breaking ever since. I was there a while back and he showed me something that broke. He said they had "fixed" it once as a little Lincoln welder came with the business to "fix" things. I welded it back with the little Lincoln and a hood that didn't even have head gear in it.

    Definitely a fail when the tungsten comes out of the side of the cup. I thought they were more prone to shattering.
