Default Welding Party This Sunday, July 1st

Like a wrenching party. EXCEPT
I need a extra hand or so welding and preformig the Finshing touches on the offroad trailer that I'm fabricating.

•Welding
•Gringing
•Smoothing out edges

I have all the tools and gear. Depending on how many show it would be smart to bring your own grinder and safety glasses. Because I only have 2 grinders. 1x 4" and 1x 7"
Naturally I'll supply the food, beer and toilet.

The work is honestly 80% welding. So anyone with good Welding skills would be sweet. But anyone can show. 1 person can only weld for so long befor a break is required if you know what I meen. My welder is a

Miller 180 (220v) 75-25 gas

I love the smell of molten metal in the morning.....would be sweet, but I spent all last weekend welding on my gates, and will do the same this weekend. Otherwise, I would be there in a flash.

What time Tim? I haven't checked with the social coordinator yet but maybe I can come help for a bit although you might not want to let me anywhere near the welder, or even a grinder for that matter

The Welding is sheet medel to sheet medal. And some to 1/8" plate. .23 wire (curentlly loaded) also have .30 wire. Solid core MIG with 75-25 argon gas
I only have one welder. Unless someone wants to bring a 120v all the welding is easy stuff. Just tedaous and boaring after a while. The bulk of the work is going to be grinding down welds and smoothing edges.

Time eairly the better. I'll most likely be up and ready about 9-10

Pm for a address if needed
C470 & 285 (west side)
