On to my next new adventure. I am going to have a go at learning how to weld. I plan on doing most of this learning on a trial and error basis and I intend to read a lot and maybe view videos as a le

I've had two 110volt MIGs, which do fine for my use, which is probably similar to yours. TIG is much better if you are real serious (roll cages, formula car chassis) but they are much more expensive.

Hi Jim, I was fortunate enough to find an 'auto body' course held at a local high school shop. The course wasn't as much a course as it was free shop time with a very experienced restorer guiding peo

With your knowledge and intended usage, MIG is your only possible solution. Try to stay away from a "gasless" welder, would recommend only C25 shielding gas. Also, you will find advantages in buying

1 2 tig, My 2 cents worth: I owned welding equipment for 30 years . . . all I ever achieved on my own was "error"! I gave up and went to school and worked a deal with the instructor: No grade, no cer

Torch...good ole oxy-acetylene welding. If you can't oxy weld, you are not going to get good welds with Mig or Arc. Its takes practice to see the puddle and Mig hides the puddle. Start with oxy and
