Hey, he knows how to spell it! The closest I've been to one was an 
attempt to teach a couple Sioux bucks to weld up a frame for one out of 
rebar up in RCSD, about 55 years ago. They didn't grok it at all, so it 
fell down, and another of Ray Sanders tourist attracting ideas came to 

The smith wrench, aka an oxy-acetylene torch, I've done some nice work 
with it. Expen$ive to run though. A true MIG is a whole lot cheaper to 
run but my "touch" with it isn't so well developed. And the flood gas is 
still too darned much. Not to mention it doesn't give you the metal's 
carbon content control that you can do with a smith wrench. With the 
smith wrench, you can leave the cooled weld as soft as body lead, or 
nearly as hard as diamond. They try. by making the flood gas 25% CO2, 
but its not the same.
