I just wanted to say hello to everyone on this forum. I'm a hobbyist just starting out and really like working with metal. There's so much to learn and so much to do. I've read most of the posts here and the whole forum is filled with tons of good info. I recently purchased the Everlast PowerUltra 205...and although I don't have much experience using other products, this combo unit should suit my needs rather nicely. The price is right, Everlast stands behind the product (they upgraded me when they discontinued the unit I had originally ordered (EV-CT518D)), and I can cut (plasma)/TIG/MMA (Arc) with it once I learn how. I look forward to sharing my projects with you and look forward to any critiques or words of wisdom you care to offer. If you want to bash me, I'd prefer meeting you face-to-face and we just throw down...I hate forum wimps :evil: . Happy welding... :mrgreen:
