That's really surprising. As a Canadian, I am so used to getting completely ripped off at a retail level, compared to Americans. You good folks in the states seem to regularly pay anywhere between 10-50% less for nearly everything. So for you to pay $88 for a spool of wire that would cost me $65-$75 depending on brand, is ridiculous. I recently bought a 10lb spool of Lincoln Innershield NR211MP 0.035" for $70, tax in- regular price. The chinese crap is quite a bit cheaper- but I will NEVER make that mistake again...

yea, i use the lincoln innershield to, and the 88 for a 10 lb roll is better in the long run than 14 for a 1 lb, however, its easier for me to get $14 than $88 lol.
i didn't get to work on the mini today cause its been raining all day, going to get some sheet metal hopefully tomorrow and get the tunnel for the tank made, might get the engine plate mounted monday or tuesday, idk tho. i got to go do some repairs to a mower tomorrow for some one and maybe ill have a little money left for parts
