UPS delivered my new Everlast 210 EXT. spent some time reorganizing the corner of the garage with my welding stuff.

Here are the first beads I've done in over 15 years, and the first in steel with TIG

Like riding a bike. You'll get in the groove again. After 15 years I'd have forgotten everything. Congrats on the new machine.

How do you like the cart? I was just looking at one yesterday at harbor freight

So far so good. At $299 it's pretty expensive, but seems to be well made. The top drawer has dividers so I've got all my torch hardware in it. Gloves, grinding disks, and other misc. in the next drawer, die grinder and accessories in the lower drawer. Welding hood and 3 sets of gas welding goggles in the bottom compartment. In the cabinet side there are 2 shelves. Top has my other torch and 25' hose. Next shelf has two 4 1/2" grinders, and the bottom has misc junk. The door also has compartments, so I have the cups and collets for the bigger torch there. The Everlast 210EXT is a couple inches long, so the front feet hang over a little, but not bad. You do have to be careful with cables where they hang down in front of the door and drawers. Cable ties seem to help with that. So two days into this I'm pretty happy.

One final comment about the cart. If you plan on having multiple machines on the top, I would suggest a mug with the wire feed on the right rather than the left (don't know who might make one). If you have multiple machines on top, and the mig has a left feed mechanism, the tanks will be an obstruction to loading wire.
