GarageGuy's Valentine's Day Gift Guide...

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Results Realty

Ladies, do you have a Garage Guy at home?  Are you wondering what he might want for Valentine's Day?  I'm here to help... 

Guys in general are a pretty simple bunch.  We like cool toys.  We are basically really big 8 year olds... that can legally drive.  Garage Guys are pretty simple, too.  We like tols and toys.  Sometime, tools ARE toys.  But, here are a few options. 

Let's start with some heat...  Welders make a lot of heat.  If you are going to buy a welder, you need to have a good idea of the needs of your Garage Guy.  Under-buying means that he can't complete needed projects with the machine, and overbuying means that you spent needless money for a machine that takes up more space.  Also remember, stick with solid brands.  These machines can last a LONG time and the best bargain is a machine that delivers long service.  The solid brands are Miller, Hobart (made by Miller) and Lincoln.  I would recommend a NIG Welder for someone new to the craft.  I'd also recommend a couple of local tech classes. 

And then we can ratchet up the heat... to something that produces SERIOUS heat.  Not just enough to melt steel, but to burn through it like butter.  A Plasma Cutter.  Again, I would stick with the top quality brands, Hobart, Miller, ESAB and Thermal Dynamics. 

Finally, a toy that isn't as Garage focused... but that any good Garage Guy is bound to like.  And it still brings the heat...  A grill.  And the whole family will like it.  Garage Guys generally like to grill...  Get a steak of the month membership, and you have covered two paths to his heart... the stomach and the Tool-Center in his brain.
