Even I can still move my thumb, so I don't need the *feel* as much. This is the perfect solution. Denny
    Good morning Denny, glad to know it can be of some help to you. Seems you are at around my age Denny, I will be 64 this July. Let's enjoy some more welding!

    Good morning gents, thanks, for nice words!
    This feeder and a 'Halogen Welding Light with Sensor' are a couple on my welding table, will post this Halogen Light later.
