    It’s high cfm so it moves a lot of air. Your compressor may kick on a few times depending on how much you use it, just FYI.

    you can get this for $180 which is ridiculous cheap. Add a good 10 gauge or 12 gauge extension cord with 20% off and you got a decent outside and farm welder for outside use.

    I wouldn't mind having it and I have a 211, it'd just be nice to not disconnect everything and swap wire out when going outside.

    I’m going to grab one just to hang onto when I get a bigger compressor again. :thumbsup:

    Right now just blowing sawdust off shit with a pancake compressor for my nailers. The HF trigger nozzle was really weak even with my 30 gal.

    I can't afford a mig setup right now. To be honest, after using this I'm not sure I want one. Not having to worry about gas is nice. Can work outside where ventilation isn't an issue. The welds don't look as nice and there's more cleanup afterwards with the spatter and slag but I'm OK with that.

    Bastards still don't have my vertical shaft 22hp engine on sale. Of course the horizontal shaft version is on sale. I don't get it, they have the same number of parts.

    I was told from a reasonable source that they were just getting ready to put the vertical one on sale but some nut on a truck forum kept posting about it so they decided to hold out on him. If only he hadn't said anything....:)

    I have the straight red handle composite ratchets in 1/4” and 3/8” and I love them. I actually have two of the 3/8” and keep one in my motorcycles tool roll, easily half the weight of the metal one it replaced. Never had any issues with any of them.

    Next time the Pittsburgh torque wrenches are $9.99 I'm gonna pick one up. Would have been nice to have had it when I did my trans filter.

    Has anyone bought a strap wrench that’s a decent/good one?

    What do you want to use it for? For oil filters, get the Lisle 63600 and never look back. I have a few strap wrenches for plumbing and general use in several sizes though: NWS, Craftsman, Klein. The NWS is the most heavy duty and expensive of the three.
