Subject: My Christmas Gift....
....Besides getting to spend a magical time with my 93year old dad and
89 year old mom plus my twin bro and our sister and all the family. That
is getting to be a much more rare treat which I appreciate. I took up
some freshly roasted Mavis Bank JBM which was brewed in a Royal vacuum
and turned out pretty good. The rest of the time it was a Colombian
Bucharamanga that was roasted lighter than I'd normally do and which
worked great. Returning home my wife told me there was another gift in
the garage. I started to haul it into the house and oofed when I tried
to lift it. Finally got it in the house and unwrapped it. I ried a
woman who knows me. My gift was a wire-feed Lincoln welder. Now I can
build that airplane.

Gave or traded a hamburger for a used refrigerator I didn't want to a
Greek restraunt owner. Worked great for as an icer-upper, no
autodefrost. He liked it for back room meat supplies. Maybe I'd
commented on a Lincoln MID I saw when moving the thing back into that
store room. Next time I came in, he said 'I can't get the hang of this
thing - you want it for $25?' Brand new Lincoln only stored. I also
tacked up a custom fabrication for an intake manifold riser to his
carburetor. At Harbor Freight, they've huge 10lb. center-core flux
wire spools for MIGs. Hardly cost anything compared to local prices
and has enough wire to weld to China. After using up the included
little spool save it and cut out the center to fit and glue into the
10lb. larger spool's center diameter for an exact match. Get a green
scour pad and screw-tightening hose clamp. Wrap up the scour pad around
the first length of wire off the spool for feeding into the hose, and
put the hose clamp around the scour pad. Tighten the clamp up for a
little resistance and spray WD40 into the scour pad. It'll lubricate
and clean the wire and keep any friction off the center teflon lining
inside the feed hose. The hosenoses often wear from dirty wire and
it's a pricey replacement. If you get an auto darkening helmet, watch
out for quality or make some protection. Mine took a hike after the
first a drop of sweat hit the inside plate.

make sure your whiskers all hide under the helmet, and get a beanie
cap to protect the bald spot. ;)

wear shorts.

Oh, yeah. I gave myself a class A sunburn one time when I was welding
a cutting bar on a 6 yard bucket. I had all the protective stuff on, but
the radiation off the top of the bucket to the back of my neck was
something I hadn't figured on.

Admit it Barry. You've also welded shirtless.
