    Hello from WNY

    Hello all. I joined as someone in another forum pointed me in this direction to gain some more information about handsaws and welding. I am learning to weld as it's something I've always wanted to learn and I got a Lincoln 210MP for Christmas. I've enjoyed most aspects, but not metal cutting with an angle iron. So far I haven't had as much time to practice as I would like, but I have completed a couple projects, a lamp and a grinder rack. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out and hope I can learn, share what I've learned with others, and have fun with my new hobby.

    Re: Hello from WNY

    Welcome from Pinnacle, North Carolina. My wife and I grew up in WNY outside Buffalo (Amherst and Elma) and we have a lot of family scattered about there. We "retired" from our CNY farm (near Auburn) 3-1/2 years ago and moved to our place here.

    Where in CNY are you? And you must have been very good last year as Santa brought a pretty nice present.

    Best regards,
    Lance

    I'm just south of Rochester, technically finger lakes region.
    Yes, indeed I got a great present. I think it was also a response to the greenhouse I built for my wife last spring.

    I've got a few project ideas I want to try, but I really just need to be practicing welding some more. I just ordered a hemsaw femi 782xl so that will make cutting the scrap metal I have easier so I can practice welding the scraps together. I'm excited!

    Ahh, just south, eh? Victor? Avon?

    Our farm was over between Auburn and Skaneateles in the northeast of the Finger Lakes. A lot of my money went to schools over your way. I went to St John Fisher, our daughter went to Nazareth and a son (and daughter in law) went to RIT. The two at RIT and Naz were there while we had another son at Syracuse. The bills were eye popping for the 2 years they were all in college at the same time.

    Let is know how the saw works out, please.

    Best regards,

    The saw works well so far. I only cut one way and it cuts pretty straight out the box. I'll have to play around with it some more. I was a little disappointed to see scuffed up and half coming off stickers before I tried it, but they will likely wear off at some point anyway.
