    I’ve never used it or heard much about it but it looks almost identical to my Eastwood notcher and it works GREAT! You’ll love it

    A co-worker overheard me telling another worker about my new welder and he gave me his auto-dark helmet and a sweet welding jacket!

    He used to work for a welding supply store but is now an accountant, lol. He said it hasn’t been used in 10 years. The date code is 2007. Still a sweet helmet! Just needs batteries.

    When I was Welding 10 -12 hours every day the outside cover plate got changed every morning.

    Because the changes are so slow it is hard to notice till the new one is in.

    The Polycarbonate seems to always scratch when trying to clean no matter how careful I was

    One more thing, do you think the Bendtech EZ3D program would be worth it for me to buy? Or should do without?

    I have the bendtech pro version and it’s great. It completely depends on how much you intend to use it. If you plan on only making a couple things with it then just hit me up with your projects and I’ll do all the calculations for you on my program haha. I’d be more than happy to help. But if you can see yourself using it a decent amount then heck yeah it’s awesome. Takes all the math out and simplifies tube bending a ton
