Thumbs up Re: Welcome To The Welding & Metalworking Forum

These are inexpensive Alternatives to help you get started with Arc & Tig welding on a poor mans budget, or as I like to think why invest big money when you don't have to and or can't!!!

Here's some info regarding the HF 80 Amp Inverter Arc Welder Item # 91110

For those of you who want to Tig Weld this lil machine can do a lot on bicycle frames!!!

An 80 AMP Inverter Arc Welder #91110 & Links for more info.

Bought An 80 AMP Inverter Arc Welder #91110 - WeldingWeb™ - Welding forum for pros and enthusiasts

Harbor Freight Welder Review - 120 voltt 80 amp Inverter

In the next link one poster talks about having 2 of these machines and runs them parallel with each other which gives him twice the heat!
80 AMP Inverter Arc Welder #91110 - Page 2 - WeldingWeb™ - Welding forum for pros and enthusiasts

Remember you have to read thru the threads to get to the posts that have good info, like the one below read the last post & watch the video.
80 amp inverter welder ac/dc? - WeldingWeb™ - Welding forum for pros and enthusiasts

Here's an alternative Inverter AC/DC Arc Welder that can be setup to Tig also it's the Forney AT-100 arc/tig

Here's the thread Link below & google the Forney AT-100 arc/tig on ebay it's less money than the Horrible Freight 80 Amp Inverter Item # 91110 and this Forney is Italian Made in Europe not China and it has an additional 20-Amps.

Forney AT-100 arc/tig?? - WeldingWeb™ - Welding forum for pros and enthusiasts

Definitely checkout forum member Porta's video with the HF 80 Amp Inverter Welder Item # 91110 see the link below.

Here's another youtube video with the HF 80 Amp Inverter Welder Model / Item # 91110

Yay!

A spot for me to ask questions next week. Moving into a place with a garage. My stepdad gave me a small mini brazer/welder that runs mapp and oxygen, but I haven't been able to even try to learn anything until I get a garage (which should be Tuesday.)

What are methods besides using a magnet to see if scrap metal I want to weld is steel? I know sometimes stainless steel of types may be somewhat magnetic, but not as much as steel. Many times stainless steel is not attached to a magnet at all. Density of metal that seem lighter I usually can tell is aluminum, color may not be a good way though. I have two pieces of metal that are attracted by a magnet. I want to weld them together with mig 75/25 AR CO2. What does anyone know?

There are pictures of bbq grill bowl scrap metal round to cut and add the other flat round weld together to make cover for chain and also partly cover exhaust pipe. Also want to put welded brackets too. Then weld matching brackets on frame to match so that the cover is removable.

The frame on bike is steel. The rectangular shape part is stainless steel pool step that was being scrapped. I may attach to foot pegs, also may cover with rubberized no skid on top of the stainless.

I know I would need other gas tri mix, but rather than that I can screw an bolt to brackets to connect to non-stainless steel, ie. the steel brackets and the steel frame. I know dis-similar metals cannot be welded together.

I know also that there is paint or something on the second flatter round metal scrap I will sand off.

You can weld stailess to mild steel with a mig or a tig.

Yes stainless can be welded to steel with mig tig or stick equipment. Tig or Mig , use Argon gas... stick mig or tig, use wire or rods compatable with 304,306, or 308 stainless steel , not mild steel.
