Awesome maz, nice tig welder. Now you can really get stuff done with all that space and new machinery. I also just purchased a used mig welder made by snapon, it is a YA 205 amp mig welder. I posted some pics in the tools section of what it looks like, good luck with the new workshop. :clap: :dance: :obscene-drinkingcheers:

The trolley is actually very stable and the welder "locks in" on its rubber feet but I decided to ratchet strap it down for additional safety. I tried tipping it over before I put the gas bottle on there and it does seem fine - I will be fabricating a bigger trolley when I have time...... :shhh:
