10 cents a bale for hay, pick it up out of the field and stack in the barn. we were in tall cotton if the rancher had an hay elevator! Can't remember how much we got to weed potato's but I'm sure it wasn't much.
You must be a young pup............never got more than 2 cents per bale, and that is if you picked it up, and stacked it.............1 penny for only touching it once................
 
And what unit was Biden with?

At least Beau served. I guess so did Hunter - check it out.

I’m advising my kids to stay the fuck away from anything to do with not working for themselves.
Redcoats?

I got paid seven cents a tree when I was planting trees.

We have a Hypertherm…. Cost about triple that.

Be interested to see what the ChiCom version does. Ours is rated for about 5/8…. Which it will sort of do. But not great. It is great up to about 3/8”. And a hole cutting pantograph will be your friend!

Beware the “ratings”. On thicker metal, it will not cut a nice kerf. It will blow out a messy inverted V. But if you are just doing “normal” fun stuff and not battleship armor, it will be awesome!

My “Christmas present” will be replacing the inverter on the monarch which exploded yesterday. Went off like a rifle being fired next to my head. I assume either a chip got in it (found one, but not touching anything?) or dust accumulated and shorted out a capacitor. No idea. It was sudden and loud

Big spark, tiny whiff of smoke. Didn’t even trip breaker. New one inbound from MRO supplier…. Sign because I don’t know how long the capacitors are going to be “hot” so just keeping people away from it until I put in new unit next week.

If it’s not one Damn thing it’s another…

Hypotherm ftw. Got a baby 110 for the shop for mobile stuff, super cool. Not as cool as the 3 phase 440 units. They're all so small and portable.

Grew up in tobacco country. Age 6-7 removed cured tobacco from the sticks. Penny a stick. Age 8 to 11 or so drove the tractor that pulled the cart. $5 per day. Age 12 and up cropped. 10 per day up to 20 as years went by. 16 or so(younger if you were a strapping fellow) hanging in the pack house. $20 per day and you earned every dime.

This one seems to be “the one” among Chinese Inverter Cutters. All of the reviews/videos seem very positive. It uses standard consumables too, not some weird off style.

I had a Blue Point a long time ago that I paid about $2k for and it was such a POS that I shamed the Snapon dealer into taking it back. Once I became a dealer myself I never sold those turds…but the actual Snapon welders and cutters are first rate.

I’m thinking about their 200pro welder too. My old Hobart mig isn’t “smart” like this new self sensing technology and inverters just plain weld better.

The consumables are what could put you in a bind. Hopefully local supply s carry them but otherwise order a ton and save for when needed
