Read what you just typed. Nothing is over kill. And for $15 how can you go wrong?

bah, there's no way to see how much the shipping is from DIY..


and at school i use a Miller 350P every day which is capable of much more than 3/8" so welding is no issue..

Its 57 shipped with the 5% discount from ballistic... BUT on the other hand, ball sack SUCKS at shipping in a decent amount of time.

9" pinion skid

Check ou the one from ORW bought this one for my old project and it saved me soooo many times. I even added tabs to the back for more support to the skid.
