After reading many of your posts I decided that for my home projects the HH 187 would be a good machine. I did some metal fabrication work right after HS... quite few Januarys ago :) back then, I learned some SMAW and a little of TIG. My experience with MIG is very limited, so I promisse to be a pain on your arses :o with tons of questions.
Can't wait for the welder now!:D
Glad to be here.

did you bring beer? just kidding. What part of CT you from? I recently purchased the HH 187 and so far through my re-learning process it works real well.

Welcome to the site. If there is anything on your mind, just ask.......in regard to welding, primarily.:D
Anthing else you need to know, I can answer. Even if I have to make it up.:D
In all seriousness, there is a whole lot of information that can be learned on this site.

BTW, my HH 187 came in and I've been "playing" with it. :) Uhhm, welding that is! :eek:
I built a cart for it, I must say that this little machine impressed the heck out of me, I used up the small spool of .30 fluxed wire on 1/8" angle iron up to burning thru 1/4 plate. Too bad my son primed the cart before I could take pics of the welds...I had the heat set at position 2 and 40 for wire feed, the welds came out shinny with some reads and blue colors , it look like TIG SS welds. Did I mention I love my HH 187? :D
