steel welding wire.
I need to know who you guys recommend as the cheapest Stainless mig
welding wire supplier. (UK)
I also would like some advice ..
it's not critical what type of stainless wire I use.....the only
properties I want of it is for the welds not to rust....IS THERE A
GENERIC S/S WELDING WIRE
Don't ask me what type of stainless I'm welding because I don't know
...I just go around the scrap yards and pick out only stainless that
is non magnetic and I pay about 50p a kilo for it.
Some welding s/s wire I have used in the past has been slightly
Am I wrong but does this magnetic S/S rust.....the stuff I weld will
be used in a marine environment but not submerged....e.g. boat
The stuff that I weld up is usually non critical and I'm of the
that s/s welds are stronger than mild steal welds anyhows....
although I want argue if someone says otherwise..
and yes I know all about contamination of the weld from liners used
for mild steal and the use of mild steal contaminated tools to work
Found that any contamination usually rusts itself off after a period
of 12 months..never to appear again.
As you can see above I like to do things on the cheap.....so would
appreciate answers with this in mind.
all the best ...mark
