Got one of these delivered yesterday. $220 - but if it puts the cab and bed back on (with or without new paint) - is worth more than that to me. Could probably sell it afterwards and recoup some $$ too. Reviews are overall very good.....and its made in the USA.

Maybe it's just the fact that I wok in a machine shop and have a large scrap pile behind my house, but I feel like that's just a couple pieces of square tube, angle iron, and a few bolts, maybe a couple welds too. It's just a hunk of painted metal that hooks up to your own engine hoist. ****, for $220, I'd at least like it to come with some strapping or custom moulded rubber insulator pads or something. I feel like that whole thing should be like $80 max...

**** man, you can buy a whole engine hoist for that and just bolt a pressure treated 6x6 to it that would do the job just as well...

**** - for $220 I could probably get a whole truck already done too.

Ya think?

I bought this one yesterday.

Sons friend had a crappy exhaust done on his car and the other party was not available to fix it for him.
So I ponied up the $479 for the welder so that Max and he could fix the ugly that was done to his car.

Here is @Maxwellvis reading the instructions to get it all set up and ready to make lava...

I will never be able to use the welder due to the computer in my chest, so I may as well let the boy make sparks while I watch with proud dad face.

Oh, and they rebuilt the whole exhaust on buddies Honda.
Buncha cutting and welding was done as no parts we actually made for the specific car.

Was looking for an aluminum brightener/cleaner in the acid form with sprayer. Could only find it on Amazon.

Used it on aluminum intake I sold to my neighbor square buddy. Turned out really good. Spray it on and let it foam up and sit for 3 to 5 minutes then rinse with water. Easy and works good.
