As for being able to alternatively mount the tire on top, he could weld a large nut to the top of the tire rack and make sure its welded over a hole, so a bolt can run through it. Then he just has to get a bolt long enough to hold the spare in place, but he will be able to take it out and keep the top of the rack flat for carrying boxes n such. Just a thought...

Edit: could just hold the tire on top via ratchet straps....

If he wants to stay a little fancy on top, he could run this strap...

Yeah that's what I did last summer. Started by laying beads on flat steel and eventually graduated to 4130 tube.

Wooh! Now time for the legs, mount it on the truck, weld everything up, possibly add gussets depending on buyers choice, then work on mounting that tire carrier under it anything welding-imageuploadedbytapatalk1365825823.177437.jpganything welding-imageuploadedbytapatalk1365825834.003167.jpg

Quick search turned up nothing - Anyone used Everlast Multiprocess machines? They have a TIG/Stick/Plasma cutter combo and pretty high duty cycles.

Looking at Thermal Arc 3 in 1's (TIG/MIG/Stick) too, but then I guess I'd still be looking for a cutting torch/plasma cutter.

Right now-I'm doing light fab, but I don't want to have to upgrade in a few years to keep pace with a farm/auto hobby. Open to any other suggestions to get the most bang for my bux....

You could save a few bucks by getting a dedicated mig if you don't absolutely need a tig welder. Everything 4x4 or farm related can easily be handled by a mig or stick.

Everlast gets some good reviews for the multi process machines. I've had great luck with Thermal Arc products. Their customer service is also very good. Just remember that a multi process machines won't do everything as well as dedicated machines would but don't let that deter you if all you need is a hobby machine.

I love my thermal arc 3-in-1 welder! Your bumper probably has welds on it done with mine. .
I've heard both good and bad on everlast, so its hard for me to say yes or no to their products. I personally proabably wouldnt buy one. I'd go thermal arc multiprocess, and then a dedicated plasma cutter- likely a small hypertherm. I run a Hypertherm PM65 on my CNC table, and i'm sure their 30 and 45 cutters would be great for garage fab as well. Just not quite as powerful as my machine. In plasma cutters, you really get what you pay for it seems!

My 30yr old hypertherm just finally died. I run the thermal dynamics on my plasma table and have had great experience. For my hand held I just got a thermal dynamics 42. They gave me 400$ trade in on my broken hyperthern. Couldn't pass it up.

Thermal arc 3in1 are great machines with alot of nice features. Just wish they had an AC side for aluminum

Yes! That is the one thing I really wish they had! But I figure I can still do stainless and mild steel with it if I want, and then after I get better on steel I'll pick up a 186AC/DC for running aluminum TIG. Its a pretty affordable AC/DC.
