Default Re: Frame Building questions

Having more experience now I can say tig is the only way to go. Apparently tig welds "cooler" than other types and therefore is better for frames because it less affects the microstructure of the metal tubing it joins. I think the best way is to buy any welder just for tacking, then take it to the pro to do all the tig welding. In fact it's what I'm soon going to be working on right now, building a jig and tacking a new rear suspension setup then take it to the pro to tig it.
