Actually, you can.  I have no experience whatever, but because of that, I 
read a lot when I got my machine, trying to learn on my own with not one to 
show me.  You can make spot welds with a MIG welder by holding it in one 
place at the "right" setting for the "right" length of time.  (That's why 
amateurs don't do it.) There is a special head for this that is shown in the 
Spridget restoration book.  I don't know if you can get that head for our 
cheapo machines.
