Cobbadog, is there nothing you cannot do?  You appear to be able to fix everything and the quality of your work is fabulous. I wish I had one tenth of your talent.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

A shit load of stuff I cant do. Sing, dance n all that stuff. Thanks for the undeserved praise as its just something I enjoy doing n done a little bit of it. Prettyuch will try to fix most things. Got real brave once trying to fix a circuit board in my old favourite inverter arc welder.
Under tge guidance of many who work on this stuff n found some dry soldered joints, blown capacitors n some tiny weeny little diodes that can only be held with tweezers all to no avail..    
RIP Lincoln welder.

Looks fantastic.

But, those rusty bolts need to be polished.....     I recall a thread from a few years ago showing how to remove rust.

Full noise cutting long stuff, stalk fell across plug end and cut power. Nice surprise when grabbed the stalk away.

Did it SHOCK you into action? or did you just yell a swear word and keep going?
