New Website:



I’d like to thank you personally for being a subscriber to my videos and to this “vlog”. You guys are the best.

I thought I’d just make quick announcement that’s going to be very exciting for a lot of you…

I get questions all the time like, “What sort of welding machine should I buy?” or “Where can I get a bargain on gear?”

I can answer the first question sometimes based on the user’s needs, but I don’t usually have a great answer for the second question… Gear can be expensive.

Well, I’m pretty sure I’ve finally got a solution for people looking for a great deal on gear.

My team and I have created a new marketplace for new and used tools. This will be a place where anyone can post their tools for sale, buy tools at great prices, all with totally secure transactions.

It’s like eBay for fabricators. A welder’s dream site for getting gear.

And here’s the kicker – the fees for selling on this website are way lower than what you’d pay to sell on other marketplaces like eBay. In fact, we charge less than half.

We just need listings! If you’ve got a tool or two that you’d like to sell, and you’ve got a few minutes, head over to and create a listing today. It will be well worth your effort.

Thanks again and Go Knock It Out.

– Jody
