Default Re: Welcome To The Welding & Metalworking Forum

A long time ago I held a GMAW3G mig ticket... long since expired, but I still remember a bit about throwing an arc. If I need it, I have a neighbour with a MIG machine I can probably use if I pay him for materials used, same for his oxy/acety torch rig.
A friend of mine a few years back picked up a little portable wire feed welding rig that hooks up to car batteries for power. By changing the length of wire and number of batteries (and how they were connected, series or parallel) it was capable of some surprising work. If I ever trip over one myself I'll be grabbing it.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
