Somewhat related to welder buying...
For the last few years my welding "table" was a small piece of 12mm plate with a section of angle zapped on the back by a seagull with metallic diarrhea, the angle got clamped in my vice to give a surface as well as tie up my vice to prevent it being used for anything else etc.
Well that's changed!
Managed to sell my old DC TIG and my last .22lr for more or less the exact amount needed for the table, got to Machinery house on Friday and it turns out they have a sale starting today so they gave us the sale price and then a further $50 off with their "mates club" deal.
It's no certiflat but fuck I am over the moon with it!!
Modded some M16 bolts in the lathe, welded on Bunnings F clamps
*Don't look too close, I'm still figuring out MIG*
Oh and much less related, ol' @Geophy had a mate selling a drill press last month and it's found it's way to my shed too.
