I got an 80 amp 110v inverter stick welder from Harbor Freight. Tiny box.

RF, are you going to get some Binchotan charcoal at a whopping $5.00 per pound?

I hope you have better luck with your welder from Harbor Freight then we did. We got a mig welder, and had to take it back because it didn't work well. Got a replacement, and it worked ok for a bit and then quit working. When my husband went back the third time, they said that they didn't have any more of those left, and offered him a Hobart in trade for only $100 more. It was a great deal, and the Hobart works great. Only problem for others is, I don't think they sell the Hobart any more.

What a great first project. It looks wonderful!

Absolutely not. I'll be using regular American briquettes at 25 cents per pound. :)

Many yakitori joints around here run their grills on gas.

Thank you.
I read a bunch of reviews, including some threads on a couple of welding forums before I decided to get this particular model. Even a few experienced welders seem to like this little stick welder and use it themselves for small jobs.
So far I'm liking this unit. I'm just sorry I didn't do this some 20 years ago. A small welder like this would have been great for the countless projects and repair jobs I've done over the years.

I have never liked wire fed welders.

what a cool looking grill you have made, roadfix! I think he deserves a name though, something 'studly'... like YAKMAN, maybe.
