    Default Who here welds?

    I know myself and Junkyardjon do but was wondering who else welds on here.

    hopefully next month i will be starting to learn how to weld. my old lady should be getting me the 120 amp mig/flux from harbor freight. im pretty pumped that way i can start doing a little fab work. now if only they sold plasma cutters that didn't cost an arm and a leg i would be alright.

    I can weld. It's been a while, but passed a test for pipe fitters. (That was stick welding.) Learned how to do it and that I didn't want to do it for a living at the same time.

    Mig welding seems easy enough, I have welded pipe and built a bunch of tree stands, but I never tried it on sheet metal.

    Only box I have is a little stick welder.

    sheet metal can be tricky but once your settings are right, it's gravy

    Here is my suggestions when you get it man. Don't use Lincoln flux wire. It runs like complete junk in my welder. I bought it because I ran out in the middle of something and had to run to Lowes to get more. Tractor Trailer Supply carries a bunch of Hobart stuff and that is what I use. It welds so much better.

    My welder is strictly flux. No gas hookups.
