Really good advise from Blakenstien.
I weld on the bikes with a Lincoln (tombstone style)
that I have had for 40 years. I have actually used it with 1/16 rod wired plugged into a 110 outlet. My upgraded house has 220, but I still use 1/16 rod to weld bike stuff. Harbor Freight has it and I use it at 60 amps or 40 amps.
You have to be real fast though with the light material we are dealing with. A MIG is so much easier for a nubie, I don't think I would reccomend stick to a biginner when your hide is on the line.
