  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 move up to Mig.

   Yes, I know people say that with Tig anyone can weld in their best 
Sunday suit and get a good weld.  I will admit Tig is easy but I still 
stand by start with oxy-acetylene and learn the basics of welding before 
moving on.

         mike (who stays away from arc, its construction/farm welding not 
car restoration welding although it used to be)
