Re: Old biker, new member
Hey Allen. Great start to a fresh year. Glad to help, yet don't want to come off as a boor and know-it-all, 'cause I'm still learning every day & I'm often wrong! That said a few observations. If you can't see you can't weld. Good eyesight is critical (proper correction is fine), as is proper lighting and the best automatic helmet you can afford. Migs are fine for rough welding, but require a lot of cleanup, grinding, sanding etc. to give a finished appearence. Tig is best for both steel and non-ferrous metals. I should probably private message you rather than inappropriately use this thread for in-depth suggestions. I also need a point of reference regarding your ongoing fabrication requirements and projects.
