Did you have it shipped to praxair in saskatoon?



nope.. i was fortunate to have a really good person ask another really good person who lives in Edmonton to pick it up for me this weekend sinse they they were coming this way so i didnt pay anything..(although i did offer.. Wink )

they will ship between branches to Saskatoon for 100 bucks. not sure about regina although i cant see it being much more or less.... so when taxes are included with shipping you should have it here for about 2000 bucks.. hell of a deal.. the new Air Liquide flyer just came out and this model with the wheel cart included comes to just about 2600 bucks.. there is definitely a good savings..

i saw your post over on mud asking about these tigs on kevins box and tailgate build thread.

the nice thing about this tig is that almost every lincoln instructonal tig video you see on youtube shows them using this welder so setup should be pretty easy.. and tons of info on these as well with strong aproval ratings by people who use them lots both by people on this forum and all over the internet.. wow, i sound like a salesman.. i am sorry.

As for the filler tubes, I just went to home depot and bought all the parts along with some ABS cement. Took an evening to put together and that was 5-6 years ago. Well worth doing.

As for flat tacklebox, walk around C-Tire or Wholesale Sports. I picked up two, one for TIG consumables and another for plasma consumables for around $10/ea.

Oh and keep your bench grinder close by when you're learning. Very Happy

Do you have a picture of your tubes? is it a simple tube with a cap?

ha!! i made these a couple of days ago.. here is what i came up with..

i couldnt justify the price of what shops want for these around here..

i went to home depot as well.. i got a 1.5 inch tube that was 12 feet long, 8 end caps and the male and female side threaded ends.. this allowed me to make 4.. (only 3 pictured because i like to fawk things up every once in a while.. Rolling Eyes )
i was going to make a bracket to atatch to the side of the tig to hold all the tubes there..


the tig..



the welding rod holders

OK, silly question, can you just cut the filler rod in half? and have half the length of tubes

from doing my reading, it looks like a lot of people do this.. its also just a comfort thing as well as some people dont like working with a long tig filler rod ..

yes for sure you can cut them to any size you want! In school our instructor made us weld all the small rods together so we didnt waste them all!
