    Default Some new goodies, and my wallet is crying

    We did an air liquide run today. Finally got the torch filled (only been empty for a year... ) Also upgraded oxygen to an 80 cf tank. Only $40 with trade in of 40 cf tank. Fillup costs about the same, real good deal is you ask me.

    Than came the real sticker shock. A new bernard shortstub, 11# of blueshield 7018, and 11# of lincoln 5p+.... $150 80cf argon tank plus fillup, $300 They were actually out of argon right now, but they will have it for me to pick up thursday. Its amaizing how fast you can rack up a huge bill there. My dad got the O/A stuff as a gift for me. Just the 2 boxes of rods, argon, and stinger was $450... I really should start buying 50# cans of rods.... I guess it is better to try a small box first, so you dont get stuck with 49# of horrible rods.
    Never carry gasoline in your car trunk. If you do, atleast use some sort of container.

    Yep. $50 for the shortstub, $32 for the 11# of blueshield rod, $42 for the 11# of 5p+. Add our 15% tax, and it came to $142.86...

    It took me until 2-3 weeks ago to get the welder sent off, due to my dad being hospitalized with a heart infection. (dont worry, he is fine now) Hopefully it should be here soon. I am waiting on a reply from simon on when I might expact to see it again. He said there would be some goodies coming along with it. I cant wait.

    With those rod prices, I might have to buy lincoln or hobart 7018 in 50# cans to afford to weld? On the argon tank, it isnt too bad, I own the tank, and never have to pay anything other than a $30 fillup again.
