    Default TIG noob from NE Florida

    Hey, Guys - Another one looking to join the fun. Have a 2013 250EX coming - I'll post some pictures when it gets here. Been a self taught MIG guy for years and looking for the benefits that come from TIG. Just added a plasma/router CNC table to my shop, we're still in the honeymoon phase. I've come from a background of working in the architectural millwork industry all my life (production cabinets, etc.) so there isn't too much as far as construction that I haven't been around. Now I'm an artist/lay-engineer - soldier of fortune.

    Made cars, motorcycles, planes, boats - just about anything that moves around, I've been interested in at one time or another.

    I appreciate the value that comes from being in a forum of like minded guys, looking forward to learning and participating.

    All the best, Don

    Hi Don! Very interesting background. Plenty of talented and skilled people on the board. Hope to see some of your projects once you get your 250EX. Cheers!
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    Thanks for the well wishes, Guys.

    Trip B, I'm in Mandarin, right across the river from ya. I worked in OP for fifteen years in the industrial loop at Commercial Casework, left them in 05. Back in 76, first wife, I bought some property at the top of 218 in Middleburg (just down from the Ravines) lived there for a few years and sold it to move back to town, just too much driving. Second wife, we were going to buy in Eagle Harbor when they were breaking ground on that, glad I didn't cause they would have run me out with all the noise I make most of the time.

    All the best, Don
