Mechanicalmagic, I was going to donate the hair to L.O.L, but the girl that cut it said it had too many split ends. :? It was a mess! And I don't doubt the girlfriends friends told her the same thing about her new boyfriend. The Jeep, well, it has an extended warranty, so the shop can fix it!! Retir...

I've been making some changes......

(hadn't had a haircut for about 17 years) About 2 months ago I got a new girlfriend. About 1 month ago I got a new truck (Jeep Wrangl...

IMO, for $30, it's well worth it for a novice to learn on. That's the key word.... learn. I wouldn't expect to weld perfect joints, on exhaust pipe at that, right off the bat. Get some scrap and start learning. Then, once you know more of what you need for the work you want to do, upgrade to the pro...
