I Still have to test it but I need to get some metal to play with. I put in in an old AT mid tower case and used an old pair of jumper cables for the grounding clamp and cable and also for the electrode cable. That worked very well. They are beefy, and were free. It still needs a couple of things. A handle would be nice, and I think I am going to move the power switch to the front.

Hey Ry, if you want an "official" ground clamp or electrode holder, I have some from a set of welding stuff my OM bought from a garage sale that I can sell ya. Pretty sure I have a Tweco ground clamp and electrode clamp, but I'll check to be sure tonight.

Thanks for the offer! So far what I have is working. Well, I think it is. It welds at least ;)
