A guy I know has a couple dry ice makers of different sizes that he uses with his FX company. They're not super-efficient, but when they shoot on location where it's impractical to buy blocks of dry ice ahead of time and store it, it's been a real bacon-saver. If you're going to be using it a few ti...

sound-damping towers for generators

If our camp has a genny I would like to case it in a sound chimney. Who's done this? I've got a couple of questions before I construct one. 1: Is 8 feet tall enough to shunt the worst of the din up out of earshot? 2: How much open space around the machine do you want to keep the heat from building u...

Also, check your connection on the thick wire and make sure you have the glow coating stripped off down to the bare copper; the inverter might not be making a full connection with it. Also all that stuff everyone else said.

My little Miller 110V has all the power I need right now. Up to 3/16" thick steel with a nice clean gas-shielded weld, or up to 1/4" if I use flux-cored wire, which is not as pretty but still a good weld (and the only choice in windy outdoors anyway). Anything I make is done with round or square tub...

Of course there's no votes for bacon because it's not one of the choices. Those of us who prefer baco...
