Default Re: Easy custom tensioner for steel frames

I used a cheap Harbor Freight 90 amp.030 flux wire welder,,kinda same thing as stick but self feed and not as clean as MIG,,but it works great,, don't know what kind of steel the Chinese use but it welds ok.Best $100 I ever spent,,I have welded up custom front mounts,exhausts,tubing, reinforced my bumper hitch on my pup truck,even made a custom bike stand out of an old angle iron bed frame I found on the side of the road.Great little welder for the hobbiest,,only downfall is the fumes,,if you don't have a good ventilated area like an open garage door you should use it outside,,cause the fumes from flux core will tear you up eventually
