Welding supplies

I had gotten so used to thinking HarborFreight was the cheapest game in town, I was surprised when I dropped into my local welding supply store and found that welding wire was much cheaper there.

HF sells flux core MIG steel wire (E71T-GS) for $19.95 for a 2 lb. reel. My local welding store had it for $15 for the 2 pound reel. Just a side note, Lowes was $9.95 for a single pound reel.

Pays to shop around and not assume the discounters always have the best price, especially on consumables. And the local store has much more expertise than any of the big box shop drones.
