    might be good for a sadistic torture device but even samm would agree oxy-fuel is more efficient.
    I understand what you're getting at 100%. I'll be sure to make a thread about the build.

    Seriously, though, the only reason I'd carry one on my truck for heating is cause it's SOOO much more compact that a oxy fuel rig. It would take up any more room than a 5lb box of electrodes.

    totally makes sense. the only flaw is that you assume the results from the twin carbon arc torch will be comparable to oxy-fuel.

    LOL, that's one of the reasons I want to build my own... I'd already be over-the-moon if it even halfway works how I want. If it actually heated up metal like it aught to, I'd be floored. Then, if it was still mostly in one piece by the time the excitement wore off, it'd go into my mental arsenal of tools when I go to work on something.

    I used to have a welder like that one on the far left in the picture. Welded pretty well! And I still have the Forney welding book. I kind of wish I had one of those carbon arc torches. Might come in handy!

    Libre is more in the sense of personal (or widespread) freedom, liberty.

    Then there's 'liebre' ... jackrabbit.

    As distinguished from conejo, little cottontail bunny.


    Spanish is said to be easy to learn. Ha! It can be as confusing as English.

    There are a few key Spanish phrases that everyone aught to know.

    Like, if you're in a public space and stink up the shiiter, it's the polite thing to do to announce "¡Corre, hay una bomba en el baño!" when you come out the bathroom. It warns everyone to stay clear of that room

    LOL not quite.

    French's has a versatile, endless array of delicious condiments, sauces, snacks, and more!

    And remember:
    When it comes to tasting the best, French's hasn’t missed a beat. We continue to make our mark with innovative flavors beyond Classic Yellow Mustard, including Ketchup, French Fried Onions and Worcestershire Sauce. Keep reading to learn more!

    Across the country, French’s means great flavor. And what better place to serve it up than the ballpark! The block club party. Or your daughter’s first birthday. No matter where you enjoy your hot dog or burger, you'll always find America's favorite mustard: French's.
