This is what a friend of mine does

He learned from the best here and now he's got his own shop
Everything you see in the pics he made from scratch and he's only 22, i think he did a good job.
If any of you wants something custom made he's willing to do it. enjoy

The rest of the pics can be found here

edit: pics resized
cheers

By the looks of the pics... he has two welders, both of which are "Miller".

Can't help ya on the model, I don't recognize either one of em, other than the fact they are millers.
