Re: good start!!

Re: good start!!

If you're dead set on it, then it'll work. Just don't blame us when the 1/4" stuff you weld breaks. For the thinner stuff it'll be fine.

Re: good start!!

I've got a cheap ass 100a stick welder. I've done my spoa and lower rear shock mounts with it. I push it real hard and I think it is going to break soon. You can ALWAYS go down with a larger welder, but can't go up with the smaller ones. It is a very good idea to invest in a nice welder. The types of things you can build and fix with a good one are endless. Q fer all.. Are the mig welders better than the tig welders? Whats the difference? Gas vs non gas?

Re: good start!!

I would want a ac/dc one..My uncle in law told me to get one of these for like 300 dollars at sears!! I think a welder would be a good investment!! He is going to show me how to weld stuff cause he has his own shop/metal shop/wood shop/etc... anywho this is like a 200 watt ac/dc welder which he told me it should do all the things I want to do!! like weldin the diff or SPOA or anything like that...and I was lookin into it and I kind of think that it would be a good investment..but I will not need it for now cause I have not got the kind of money to spend on that plus other things for my rig when it will probably just sit in my garage for a lond time until I come up with the money..So bottom line I will not purchase a welder for right now but very soon!!

Re: good start!!

why buy one at all if your uncle has one? seems like a waste of money at least till you learn how to use it... go learn first, then buy one
