Default Re: ?? Welding Fito fork legs ??

First question: Are you going to be welding steel or aluminum? If aluminum you'll need to be proficient at welding that metal. It is not like welding steel. You cannot cobble aluminum together with a cheap discount tool store welder and little to no experience.

All successful welding processes rely on the ability and experience of the person doing the welding. This is especially important on a part as critical as the front fork on a bicycle.

Be very careful here and make sure that whoever does the welding is competent and knowledgeable and knows the importance of what the job entails. Front forks are nothing to take lightly.
