I recently purchased a Lincoln SP-175 Plus wire feeder welder and absolutely love it. I used the SP-175 Plus while attending the NASCAR Technical Institute and love how smooth and light these welders are. I have used various other welders and absolutely love the SP-175 Plus for its ease of use.
A friend of mine asked me to build a bench out of snowboards. I researched the project and could not believe the poor quality of some of the benches on the market. I assured my friend I would make a bench they could depend on for life and for much cheaper than those that are commercially available.
I made the first bench using only my SP-175 Plus, an angle finder and a chop saw. My friend was so pleased she had me make another one and now her neighbors want things made for them. I can't take credit for the idea of the bench but I think this is a cool piece of furniture. Maybe this project will get some younger people interesting in welding and using their creativity.
Thanks Lincoln for your excellent products.
