Longevity MIG welder

Where is Toulouse?
It's in the South of France.
What keeps you there?

My family and friends, and the fact that it's chill there. http://skateszone.com/the-top-8-best-skateboards-for-beginners-reviews-2017/
It's not exactly Orange County, so how do you discover skateboarding in a place like that?
Through school; some friends of mine had a board and it snowballed from there. I loved being on the street.

If you could make 20,000 Euros a month as a pro in France, but instead of soccer the only thing on local TV was X-Games coverage and reality shows featuring Ryan Sheckler, Rob Dyrdek, and Bam Margera, would you be down?
No, I wouldn't be involved. That's not my cup of tea.
What about moving to the United States for the same amount? Could you rig it?
No, seriously not into it. I'm happy where I'm at today. Just couldn't do it.
You toured the US for the first time this summer. Which French stereotype of Americans did you find to be the most true?
Definitely loud and everything is really big, as Big Tymer would say.
Gypsy tour or Motel 6 tour?
The Gypsy tour is mellower, but having Ty pushing you on the Motel 6 tour is great, too. It's really two different things with different goals.
What makes riding for Cliche better than trying to ride for a board company in the States?
It's a lot easier and more accessible. Plus, I wouldn't want to give up the Euro way of life. When people out there ask you what you do for a living and you say, "I'm a pro skateboarder," what's the most common reaction?
I'm sure the same as everyone else, that it's not a job. That's followed by, "What will you do when you're 30?"
Is skateboarding chick repellent, or does it actually help to get you laid?
I'm sure it could help, but Toulouse isn't Orange County so I do without.
Which French pro do you think has done the most to put France on the map?
From as far as I can remember it's JB. He opened the door for France, and possibly Europe.
Which one has been your favorite?
That goes back to the other question: JB.
Who's on the come-up right now?

Cliche am Charles Collet and Gauthier Rouger, for sure.
The only English you knew when you got on Lakai was "suede." Now you can carry on a full conversation. Which hip-hop album helped you learn the most English? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-turn-skateboard-skates-zone
That Nas album I Am was my reference. I was like 13-years-old.
Why do you think France produced so many pro freestylers back in the day?
I didn't even skate back then so I couldn't tell you.
If not for Tupac and Scarface, would there be anything from American culture for French youth to love?
What about Biggy?
Yeah, I think Biggy
Who would you say the French dislike the most: Algerians, gypsies, Americans, or other French people?
That's a tough one. Maybe the general population would say Americans, but then again French-speaking Belgium gets all the jokes. I don't pay attention to it, so I'm really not sure.
Did it hurt your feelings when the Bush regime took the "French" out of fries and toast?

Not really, but it did reinforce their stupidity. We still ask for American hamburgers no matter what's going on.
Since I've never even seen anything that remotely resembled it out there, do you have any idea why it was even called "French toast" to begin with?
Maybe because it tastes good. #@%$#!, I don't know ... It's something you could Google. Nobody out here knows a thing about Zinedine Zidane. Who is he and why does he get you so hyped?
He's the best footballer there is. He's so talented and lived his dream; came from nothing to glory. He's humble and bonds the French with his Algerian heritage.
He'll probably be remembered most for his ejection after head-butting an opposing player in France's 2006 World Cup final loss. Would they have won if not for that jackass move?
Yeah, that sucked. We would have beaten Italy, for sure. They shouldn't have even reached the finals; they faked a penalty against Australia in the early rounds.
Have you ever actually seen The French Connection?
Still haven't. I almost bought it in China when I was Fully Flared, but the DVD didn't have french subbies so I'll have to wait. Now that Fully Flared is fully finished, what's next on the agenda for you? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-ride-skateboard-beginners-skates-zone
Chill, and work on my Cliche part for the new full-length DVD due next spring. Thanks, shout outs?
Family and friends, everyone who has my back--and even those who don't, all good.

Mood: Awesome - totally awesome

[*] posted on 6-21-2017 at 08:17 PM

I have a small Lincoln SP125 plus that I have welded the crap out of for the last 15 years with absolutely ZERO problems. It welds nicely up to 3/8" plate. For a hobby welder it has been awesome. You can probably find one on CL for under 300 bucks. Stay away from the big box wlders (weldpack) they are price-point welders that are built as cheaply as possible. For a little 120V machine, it has been awesome. If you are not running it full throttle, you can power it up off a single 20A circuit. For best results forget about flux core and just use gas. I use C02 on mine but 25/75 will work just as good.

I haven't ever used a Longevity so can't comment on it. Personally for me I would never purchase anything but a Miller or Lincoln, sure they may cost a little more but for something that will last 10 years plus, the extra cost is nothing compared to the welding power, customer support, backing and comfort knowing that it will work as it is listed.

Never heard of that company before, but i second Kents thoughts, Lincoln or Miller. I use a Lincoln Power Mig 350 pretty regularly at work and love the machine!

I second that emotion. Last time I ate Spam and liked it was on a teenage camping trip back in the 1970s. I tried frying up some at home later that summer and it wasn't hardly as tasty. Since then my love of Spam has greatly diminished, as it was with this post. :barf:
