    I had a PP70 with the A81 (sold yesterday), and I think it's the cat's pajamas! Consumables aren't as bad as you may think, compared to other units. Compared to the Thermal Arc 151 that I had before...

    Has anyone used 309? Jody says that it's his "go to" rod when he's unsure of the parent metal. In the case of a 6 decade old motorcycle part, I have NO IDEA what alloy they originally used.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but the studs are actually 3/8-16 on the case side and 3/8-24 on the mount-up side. The only time I've ever seen them pull out is if they're not properly tightened.

  20. Sticky: This is good!
