    WOW!!!........

    If DARGO likes them, I will buy several sets myself. For all the kidding I have engaged in- directed at him, I should say thank you.

    Actually now that i thing of it, I should buy the sets YOU own Dargo...... I mean after all- you have obviously found the 1 out of a hundred that didn't break. So, why bother tempting fate- just have you test drive tools for me!
    I thank God everyday for all of the blessings he has given me- especially for the one's I do not recognize or see!

    Wanted to chip in with a positive vote for the 90 amp/110v wire welder. I used mine for the first time last night to move a muffler mounting bracket on a Chinese ATV I am rebuilding. I am a first time welder, and it worked for me. Wasn't pretty, but I managed to get a strong weld with it. Took me a couple of tries to get the settings on the welder dialed in right.

    The auto darkening helmet from HF works great, too. It's a must for a beginner. Too hard working with the cheesy facemask included with the welder.

    I should charge them to be able to call particular items "Dargo endorsed". I try to be fair and give praise when praise is due or "avoid" when the item is likely to not make it through the first use. I'm beginning to wonder if I have "SUCKER" written in invisible ink on my forehead for going back after all the one shot wonders I've gotten there.

    HF moving dolly - high torque! Dogbone multi-wrench too..wait, it split on first use.
    My trash man is the greatest. No matter how bad the economy gets and how bad stocks drop or how bad home values drop, his business is always picking up.

    You love HF.

    You just can't admit it to yourself!

    I don't know about anyone else but I would die from laughing if I walked into a HF and saw a bunch of sets or ratchet wrenches with a sticker of 3 smiles beating a dead horse with a thumbs up and "Dargo endorsed" written on it.

    I may not actually die from laughing, but I'd likely end up in intensive care.
    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    Mine is good after a few years and about 20 pounds of burned rod. The shell has always fealt a little flimsy, but it's held up. The shield works every time. I am 10 times the welder I was before I got the AD Helmet. Of course 10 times not very good is still not very good.
