    I didn't necessarily state it well, but that was actually my point - the corners seem like they would be the points that would crack, and without wire, if/when they do crack, the sides would fall...

    Looks fantastic! I've been tempted to try some concrete tabletops, and I was envisioning a setup very similar to the mold you've build. Is there any sort of steel reinforcement in your planter? Or is...

    I'd love to go to a good welding school. I'm certain that a good instructor could teach me so much faster than I could learn on my own, and with fewer mistakes (not to mention the material and argon...

    I'm also brand new at TIG welding, and I agree - without having advice from the folks on here and from Jody at WT&T, I wouldn't even know where to start for settings.

    So I got some steel - square tubing and some sheet to make a simple shelf (overkill for what it is, but an excuse to make some real-world TIG welds). 1" square tubing, 13ga, and 13ga sheet, using...

    Oh, I'm not badmouthing this machine at all! I love it, and I like the chance to learn on a basic (but still very capable) welder. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but still does a great...

    Nice review - you've been busy!

    Part of me really wishes I'd chosen the PA160STH instead of the PA140ST that I ended up getting. My thought was that I'll get those nice features (post flow, HF...

    Thanks. As it turns out, my welds aren't anywhere near that uniform on the first welded joints I tried. Stringer beads help with, but don't fully prepare you for real actual welds. I should probably...

    Nice! So if I order from Amazon or the Everlast eBay store, is this what I would get? Because this isn't what the photos show at this time, and the MTS200S is not even listed on Everlast's own site....

    The blue handled torch came with my machine. I was surprised that a 3/32" collet didn't come in the little consumable kit, though. Came with 2x 1/16" collets, a 5/64", and a 3/32" collet body. So I...
