    im kind of lucky. My next door neighbor has a set up to sharpen chains for the loggers on there saws and processors and does it kind of as a side job. All I have to do is drop them off and walk across the road and pick them up when there done.

    I use them loading 5.56 and I use them on 9mm, 40 and 45acp ammo. Ive never seen leading caused by them in those guns and have seen no degrading of accuracy. I have though in roll crimp versions for the 41,44,45 ect and in them if I want a 4th...

    aa9 like 110 likes pressure to burn properly. Its not a great powder for lower pressure use. Great powder for any mag pistols and rounds like the 10mm, 50 beo and the 22 hornet. It is one of my used powders.

    just take it easy on it. Do big jobs at a slower pace. Run it hard with its short duty cycle and it might not hold up. But for welding little jobs like your mower deck it should be just fine. I had a 125 amp Lincoln 110vt welder. I did have problems...
