Default Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!

Silverbear Get gas hooked up and youll notice an immediate improvement in the look of the weld - fluxcore is some dirty stuff gas pushes the impurities out of they way as you weld. Ive welded for better then 20 years as a DIY'er . just the other day i posted in my occ chopper thread that i can never manage to get a pretty weld when i use fluxcore and only use it when i run out of gas. But a weld doesnt have to be pretty to be strong as long as you get good penitration, you can always grind and weld over it to fill in any missed spots. You soon wonder how you ever got along with out one. Good Luck and Enjoy. rick
