Just a bragging post...

Today was a day off.... ran across a yard sale...

The guy was moving and had to dump everything fast. He had mostly junk, (That's why a rarely ever stop at these things...) But we spotted some welding stuff. He had an old green MIG welder and bunch of accessories. A Lincoln buzz box with accessories and an acetylene set with accessories. We haggled a bit, I said I don't need the buzz box or the big, but the offer was all or buy what I wanted at his prices... I took it all!! :banana: :yes: :clapping:

My neighbor got the buzz box as I have one and mine was bigger and newer. I kept the Mig even though I also have a good one. It will be a back up. In the nack of my head if my other brother-in-law catched the jeep bug I'll give it to him. The mig is in rough shape, but turns on and runs. I didn't strike a bead, but with cleanup, I'll bet it works fine. It's a 140A thats rated at 90 with a 20% duty cycle.

 

The acetylene setup is all I really wanted and worth the price paid for everything. BOTH bottles are near full. its got a brasing tip and cutting tip with extra tips. Extra NEW set of hoses and the gun is in great shape. BOTH regulators are NAPA and look to be only a couple years old. BOTH bottles are in pressure reg dates. The cart is nice and only slightly bent but entirely useable. The goggles are shot as is the ignitor.

 

 

Just wanted to share my good fortune with my CC brothers. OH YEA, not bad for $50!!! :wavey: :shake: :wavey: :doh:

Thats a great deal.

 

My neighbor (who has not been a car repair person in the least) had the unfortunate passing of his father several months ago. While he did not do any work, his father repaired large trucks, and had the tools to do so.

 

After he passed, they put all the tools up in a 40 ft container at the house, thinking they would parcel out the goods later. I had asked for a torch setup and a monster floor jack. They also had several hobart and lincoln welders, along with several aluminum saddle tanks (that we wanted to make into a grill).

 

IN any case, his nephew moved in. Needing money to support his drup habit, he cut the leads off the welders and sold them for scrap (along with the alum. tanks and the welding torches).

 

Needless to say, my neighbor was ticked, and I just had to shake my head.... :headpop:

ANOTHER SCORE!!! I picked up some stuff for the CJ project....

 

Set of glass for CJ full doors. New windshield glass, New Radiator, used D44 axles with new bearings and seals, brand new 33" AT tire with a matching rim, CJ Half doors with aftermarket slider soft tops, full plow hydraulic setup with two sets of hoses, OBA compressor, 115V 2HP motor to run the compressor @ home, a CJ front DS Speicer needing Ujoints, some scrap steel and a sheet of 1/8" aluminum and a set of CJ D30 shafts.

I'd tell ya how much, but the last "acquisition" was unbelievable enough... I'd have you guys up here in my stomping grounds sucking up all my yet to find good deals... :yes: :rotf: (Cough cough 150$ cough) :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :brows:
