3 Days Ago
I have never measured the swing, but the bed is at least 8 feet. I use the little Atlas I showed earlier more, but I really need one between that and the big one.
I used my little wire feed to build up those pins, it worked nice, but I dont use it for anything heavy. I bought it a couple years ago mainly to weld on my sprayer and combine. The booms on the sprayer are made of light box iron. Works good for that.
I have a Ranger 300 on my big service truck, a 225 on the smaller truck.
Dad has a nice old grey box Ideal Arc 300 in his shop. I will hook up a tig torch to it some day and see if that side of it still works.
Most of what I do is on heavy iron, repair work. It is kind of nice to weld on the light stuff from time to time though!
