I grew up loving welding. My dad was a welder, my father in law and brother in law were welders. I started welding in my early teens. After owning my own shop for 12 years I left the field for nearly 30 years. Thanks to Everlast I am now getting set up with a new bunch of equipment for a small, home shop. I own the Lightning MTS275 and a Power Plasma 62i. Tomorrow after my electrical upgrade I?ll be back cutting things apart and putting them together.
