Fuel consumption, start up time, and simmer tests are coming soon.

Hmmm, my Coleman 500 is green. I wonder if I removed the paint if it is nickel underneath......

I took my old lincoln Weldpak 100 wire welder I bought 14 odd years ago and converted it to a mig welder today. The H.R. lady is on vacation, so I used her desk as a workbench. I would have used my desk, but I already had a Acer Laptop I was replacing the LCD on it... I haven't used this thing in about a decade since I bought my Miller 220v mig, but I thought it might be useful at work. I was thinking about taking my old cheapo plasma cutter too.. But realized I don't have a compressor in my office to run it.. (yet) I'm trying to convince my boss that the I.T. department needs a lathe and a sheet metal brake... Since I already got the OK for the Acetylene torch... :-D

Well say goodbye to boredom. You'll be making stuff you've never dreamed of. There won't be a broken item in sight. You can do sculpting with iron. Holly-molly, call you lucky to have all the nice man toys :D You scratch her desk and you're dead meat :mrgreen:

Nice conversion. Put the compressor outside and run the hose through the window/wall. :P

Coleman 550. It doesn't burn right on Coleman fuel. I suspect the generator is bad. Anyways, it takes it 5 minutes 44 seconds to boil two cups of water from 45 degrees to 212.

Yeah, that sounds slow. Not much "jet" power. Any idea what goes bad inside a "generator" can they fixed or do they have to be replaced?

Sounds like an easy fix. Is the spring to prevent the tube from collapsing?
