    Die grinder is good. It’s a little big (knew that before ordering), but I can’t stand air hoses or the sound of air tools. It’ll be a very handy addition to the Arsenal.

    that’s a jd2 notch master.

    I guess it depends what you want to do and where you are.

    I know so many places looking passing the drug test and showing up for work seem to be the major issues

    Only way to learn man! You could always grind it clean so it'll look a little better after you paint it.

    They don’t look bad! Only people who hate on newbie welders are people who can’t weld. Real welders understand that we all start somewhere.... and sometimes shitty welds can hold more than you expect. Like go ahead and tack weld something in place and try to break it off only to get pissed when it doesn’t come off lol!
    Good job man and keep it up!

    That gun has the control wiring built into the main plug. Most have a second, small plug for the control wiring. I think your options are going to be limited.

    This is called a Euro Quick Connect Back end !!

    Esab uses lots of these some of the old Airco Dip Paks had them as well

    Back end being the end plugging into drive housing

    Most all gun manufactures make them.

    Another option is a adapter that you can buy to use what ever back end you have or want to use .( Miller Lincoln ETC)

    Last Adapter I bought might have been like $60.00 been some time.

    Just what welder do you have it came from??

    Just what was wrong with the gun??

    Now this could get quite interesting !!

    If they are buying the guns from a vendor who builds them to spec no problems !!

    If it is a Chinese Knock off of the Euro Quik Connect the dimensions might be off enough things won`t interchange .

    In theory any of those guns should easily swap machine to machine major difference would be the size wire your running .(liner/Contact tips)
