Here's one of the first welds I ever made. It was with an oxy- acetylene torch with a welding tip. Not very good, but I was proud at the time .

Where did you learn to weld? I see you're around Clemson. I've got a brother in the welding program at TriCounty but I don't think they teach oxyacetylene there.

For all of you who do a lot of fab work, cutting tube or angle stock, etc...

What saw do you recommend and why? I'm going to have to dust off my welding skills and do some of my own fab if my overland build is ever going to get done, and I'm going to need a quality saw to help.

I've used anything from the harbor freight chop saw, Milwaukee dry cut chop, to a northern tools 12" horizontal band saw. Depends on what you are going to be fabbing.....

A lot of 1-2" tube, angle iron, max 2"x2" square stock. If I design anything with plate I'll send that out to get cut.

Probably overkill, but for the price they are hard to beat.

Yeah, square and round. Not that bad for an entry level cold saw. Some of the better/ higher capacity saws like Dake or Scotchman are upwards of 7 Grand.

That's a sick saw, but definitely out of my price range. I was thinking about one like this: http://www.mscdirect.com/product/09233529?fromRR=Y The intent is to make my projects, not go into mass production.

Any recommendations on a fairly cheap 110V plasma cutter ($300-500)? I won't be cutting anything too thick, mainly because I only have a 110V welder. I'm looking at something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/SIMADRE-50R-...item2588b886db

I run one of these for general cutting and they're awesome saws.
It's a non-lubricated cold saw so the metal barely heats during cutting so you can touch it after a cut and little burring, no sparks or dust comes out, just metal chips (they're pretty loud though). Blades last well when properly treated and can be resharpened several times to get the most out of the cost of a blade.

The only problem that I did not like about the metal blade chops is the fact that if you dont tighten the material down all the way every time you can bind the blade and chip a tooth. The cut is nice but composite blades are more forgiving.

You should be fine with a chop saw for home use they are loud and messy unless you get a steel blade. Cold saws are not really for mass production they are great for short runs and custom stuff but for production you want a hydraulic feed band saw. I have a Ellis 1600 in my shop and it's great I can do short production runs of nine 2"x 2" tubes at once just start it ans walk away wile it cuts it really speeds up the production when you have to cut 1000+ slider legs in a day .

This is what I think of when I think of a production saw and something like it will be my next saw

yeah I convinced the last multi-million dollar residential builder to buy a 12" horizontal. Before I showed up they were cutting 20' sticks of 6-12" 1/4 flat with horses and Milwaukee metal skill saws.... fucking shop was a joke.
