    Thanks, plan is to build it for less than 600, the cheapest I've found a used one for is 1200, and a new one would cost about 2500,

    you went over budget... lol that welders nice... but the 140 plus the angle iron has put you at your budget mark or at least REALLY close... but I know I know materials and tools are considered part of the budget! thats what I have to tell my wife!

    They let me work an extra day at work , got 5 extra loads so that's what paid for the welder, yep it put me over but the angle was only $120, I justified the purchase of the welder for all my other projects too, my 86 bronco II, the 85 bronco II I'm building for my daughters, and my 99 f150 mudbog race truck, plus it was on sale!!
