Choprboy, you are exactly right about 2T/4T. I wrote about it in the original post, but it was buried in there.

In this primitive area where people think a Harbor Freight chipping hammer is a sophisticated tool, I will have to get used to de-scaling hot-rolled. South Florida technology is pretty much limited to what people learned in order to make a living after leaving Cuba. My truck needs painting, and I'm waiting until I move to Marion County to get it done. No one here knows anything. No one here can do anything.

Nothin' like a little practice!
Gettin' better Steve!

Didn't you say you got a blast cabinet?
Or were you just thinking about it?

Rusty or scaly things I am going to TIG, into the blast cabinet they go.
Works on ugly oxidized aluminum too.

I want a cabinet, but I'm waiting until I move. Once I have more room, I plan to bankrupt myself by making 3900 square feet too cluttered.
