Re: Welding newbie need advice
Check post #6. The man says in essence, "whatever works for you". I've never made my living as a welder but I too went to school for it and have been welding since the mid 60s. I have MIG, TIG and arc machines in my garage.I have Oxy-Act too but use it only for brazing and heating.
Welding, like any other trade has people from both sides of the bridge. My advice was based on many many successful welds building cars, airplanes and other projects. I've never had a weld fail.
Let's not get into an augument over a process that has opposing followers. You learned one way; I learned another. If we both have success...so be it. Okay?
