2 words. Gorilla Glue.

My gorilla, Mr. Drummond, actually ran away a few months ago.
You must be devastated right about now. Can you describe him?

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

About 4.5" tall. Silver fur. Kinda muscular. Last seen with his long-time companion near the Denver area.


I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

AvE has some good welding videos on YT, he covers the pros and cons of starting with stick vs. a whole setup. I was interested in learning but I don't have room for anything beyond a stick welding setup.

I'd probably go with stick and get your practice in "welding in the round"

once upon a time I was Tornado Alley FX

get a mig. easy and cleanest looking welds. i'd go with argon instead of flux core. you can get a decent new setup for 600 but craigslist it up and you might get a better rig for less.

This reminds of me an old thread at BYOC between Defaced and someone else who I can't recall. It was a beast of a welding thread as they knew welding. I'm not sure if you can dig it out of the search over there or if maybe it was lost in one of the two great data loss events.
