Been practicing a lot, in between other projects, and I got it. My mt200 bit the dust on the ac side during a recent practice session. I am sure that it can be repaired, but I bought a new machine, Everlast 325EXT. Can't justify the cost of Blue or one of the Red ones. Works great. I didn't realize that the mt200 had been failing and still debating on repairing it. I also set up my router table as a joiner to get clean smooth edges, that worked really well for practice. Getting confident enough that I don't need to continue that process unless it's a critical weld. To get to this point I went back and watched as many of Jody's and Brad's videos to get all of the info and help that I could. Thank you all for your help and comments.
