Just a quick comparison video showing the difference in the view between the Lincoln Viking helmets with 4C lens, and the Miller helmets with the Clearlight lens. Not an in-depth comparison of the helmets themselves. Just showing the difference in the view through the auto darkening lenses. Both helmets provide a very good view with good color and clarity. I personally prefer the slightly more accurate, more blue color of the 4C as compared to the greener color of the Clearlight lens. But others may prefer the Clearlight lens. Maybe this video will help you make that decision. I wouldn't complain about having to weld using either the 4C or Clearlight lens.
This is the second part of my review of the Vulcan MIGMAX 215 welder from Harbor Freight. In this video I show some welding arc shots and the resulting welds. I also give my overall opinion of the welder, now that I have arc time with the machine. Part 1: https://youtu.be/f-EIRi96GWA
Review of the MIGMAX 140 MIG welder from Harbor Freight. It is a 120V inverter MIG welder. Not quite the value of the dual voltage MIGMAX 215, in my opinion. But not a bad option in the 120V only MIG category. Will be making another video showing some more testing and results.
I wanted to see how the IC Graphite pad compared to older thermal paste since one of the stated benefits is long life. So I decided to test out an older computer and share the results.
Wanted to see for myself how the IC Graphite Thermal Pad performed in a normal, everyday situation, not necessarily an overclocked, max performance performance situation.
Picked up the cheapest flux core, wire feed welder I could get locally, to see what results I could get. Welded some joints and did some cut and etch testing. Pleasantly surprised with the results.
This is part two of my review of the ESAB Rebel EM 215ic. The EM is the MIG only version. I've done quite a bit of work with the welder now, and I really like it. Definitely worth consideration if you are in the market for a dual voltage MIG welder in the 200-240 amp output range.
This is a brief how-to on installing an mSATA SSD as the main boot drive with a fresh Windows install in a new Alienware 14 laptop. I just give basic instructions on installing the drive, setting the boot order, and getting Windows installed. The original HDD is left in place as a storage drive. This is my first how-to ever and I'm just winging the dialogue, so forgive me if it's not great (it's not). Hope it's helpful to someone out there who is looking to perform this upgrade. Disclaimer: I'm hardly a computer expert. This is what I did and what worked for me. You shouldn't do this unless you are comfortable with the basics of installing components and setting up a fresh install of Windows. I don't go into detail about the actual installation of Windows or drivers. Here is the SSD I used: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249031
The new Vulcan line of welders for Harbor Freight are now available, and people are interested in how they perform. They represent an attempt by Harbor Freight to offer better welders that compete favorably with name brand welders, but this means they are a lot more expensive than what you might expect from Harbor Freight. I picked one up to find out for myself it they are worth the money. This video is part one, where I just give an overview of the features and included accessories, as well as giving my first impressions of the build quality. I will upload part two soon, where I will do some welding it the machine and see how it does. Part 2: https://youtu.be/zL1sKFBvdoE
In this video I do some more testing to see what I can do to improve the strength of the welds from the Harbor Freight, 125A Flux Core welder. Just in case, here is a link to the welder used: https://www.harborfreight.com/welding/flux-welders/flux-125-welder-63583.html
