    Nice welder. Which engine? We have a Big Blue Air Pak with a Deutz engine that is invaluable.

    I like the oil cooled design. One less system to maintain. Lots of power too. Ours doesn't even waver when you turn the compressor on while welding.

    How many holes can you drill with this annular cutter? I tried drilling holes in a scraper cutting edge yesterday with a 9/16" cobalt annular cutter and drilled 4 holes and that was it! Also saw Ray's pointer about heating where drilling do you do that? Thanks Jerry

    Jerry, I use Hougen modified 12000 series M42 TiN coated cutters and have drilled [9] 7/8" holes in HARDOX 400 and still have the cutter in use. There are also rail road rail cutters available from TRAK-STAR that cut up to 400 Brinell.

    How did the centre equaliser bar pin go Tom? They can be a pig to get out. Will the outer bores take a bearing or is it a machining job?

    Hey Tom that crane you got makes me kind of drool lipped. But I am sure that at times you wish it was bigger.

    Ray, the center pin came out easy but the outer bores do need machining.

    It is 4" taller, 4" wider, and 5" longer. The machine fits well on a 36" welder deck.
