  • Interests Interested in a bit of everything, but to be more specific I love metalworking, tinkering, building the better mousetrap type of things. I like being able to say, "Yeah, I built that.", but will rarely step up to admit it if asked. I like riding, dirt, street, 2 wheels, 4 wheels, caged or open. I enjoy my family time with my wife and in-laws. But this is just the tip of a very large iceberg...

    He's not switching to a cage, he's diversifying his portfolio.
  2. Budget GPS?

    You can get refurbished units also, my Dakota 20 was $99 with the full factory warranty. Try http://www.gpscity.com as they sell refurbished units and occasionally have really good deals.

    I would say stop in at one of the Westair locations and see if they have any demo models that they are getting rid of available. The welder technology has progressed in the inverter side of the industry and they are good. All the major brands have a budget line if you're going 120VAC power supply then look towards the Hobart units, fairly bulletproof. On more light industrial the Miller 185 is good. Don't overlook Esab or Lincoln either. I've used them all and they're all quirky in their own ways. For the small projects the Hobarts are more than adequate. If you're going to be doing a lot of 1/4" or thicker regularly then you'll definitely need one of the 208/230 VAC units due to the duty cycle on thicker settings. But, in recommendations on where to get one check the equipment rental stores as they might have something industrial that they are getting ready to take out of the fleet and sell that is perfectly good but they want one that is under warranty from the manufacturer. Yet another long winded suggestion is to check with the welder repair shops for anything they might have lying around that the customer traded in to trade up. As for the saws, cold saws are great, abrasive saws are cheap but effective, buy on basis of your work environment. Personally I've got the Lincoln SP255AC, The Hypertherm 43 plasma, and a cheap old HF abrasive cut off saw. Both the welder and plasma were demo units. Good luck in your search, hope this helps.
  5. Garmin Maps

    For the Garmin specifically maps the Garmin TOPO US 24K works great and at the 24K level all maps are routable. I'll have my DVD of it with me at the dash if we want to see if I can load some of the areas on it. The one I have is US west which if I recall correctly covers CA, WA, OR, and I thought NV with AZ but I'll have to locate the jacket to confirm. It's not completely up to date though as the maps were generated by NAVTEQ in 2008, so some roads that are new aren't there yet, but at the resolution level they're very thorough. I only paid $65 for it but that was during the going out of business sale of Sports Authority. I believe they're usually between $100 and $120 per region.
  6. MotoForza Fire

    Just watching the news and up pops breaking news, MotoForza is on fire. Not a good thing. I'm intent on being notified of the cause. I'm not going to express my opinions with the previous issue in the area.
  7. 4x4 rental

    Might look at the books from http://www.funtreks.com which has GPS info as well as app's. Looks interesting.
  8. XL long sleeve, 2 of them, I'll bring cash to the dash.

    Can't make it, customers call...
  12. SDAR club meeting 10-18-2016

    I'd like to be there but the work schedule will tell the story for me. I don't clock out until 5:30P.M. on Tuesday's. How late is to late to get there?
  13. SDAR Padres night - 9/20

    Haven't been to a game in a while, might have to make the time, but that depends if my wife, (1) wants to go, and (2) doesn't get picked for a jury as she's up for jury duty.
