Default Re: MIG Welding TV show

Most trade schools offer short night courses in welding. They are good as they are interactive. Learning differant methods an insight to various types of metals, heating and electrodes. The courses are usually very reasonable considering you can use the knowlege forever. Many employers will pick up the tab even if it is not directly job related. By all means watch the program. If I had a tv I'd watch it. Perhaps I can get them them to tune it in at the sports bar.

Yes the 220vac gives you more omph. I've used a Lincoln 125 110vac(Baby welder) when I go out to do a job, small tank, easy to carry, I use .035" 70s solid wire, If I prep the job I cab Multi pass just about anything. 220 is just nicer. Oh BTW, that innershield gasless wire is yuchie, only use in a pinch, stick with shielded, cleaner and eaiser(with gas).
ya i know what you mean im no newbie i have a great teacher and i dont mind that flux core it just takes practice. I live in an ag community so i plan on doing more around town jobs and maybe building tankers for semi's for ruen.
