I want to get one of those. I bought a 30# recurve that I'll try to use this year to save my elbow a little strain.

I really want a recurve, but my bow is working good so I've held off.

Didn't buy any of these, but I guess this is what happens when you tell people your looking for old bows for bowfishing. Picked up 4 in the last month. 1 was too sketchy to use, but the other 3 will make nice loaner bows to replace my old junky loaner bows I have.

Got a free prop from a guy i work with. I think it will work pretty decent for a fan. I might have a project in my future.

Just got a new welder too. Gonna work with my dad this weekend and hopefully get a good start on my platform. Water is starting to open up here now and it won't be long now.

It's just a arc/stick welder. Didn't want to spend a ton when I'm not going to be doing a ton of welding.

I'm going to attempt to make it out of EMT conduit. Seen a few online that turned out pretty good.

Once you learn to weld there is no stopping you.
That's what I'm hoping. There have been a lot of times where I was working on something and had to spend a lot of time and effort trying to bolt stuff that I could have welded in a couple min.

nice, i got an older model of that one. It never gives me problems. all i do is change the oil once in awhile. My friend got one last year and burned it up right away. I guess they told him about 1 in 4 will give you problems but they usually take care of it for you
