I am in the need to do some welding for a hobby project. All i have to weld is "a couple" of 1.5"x1.5" A-500 steel tubes (i am building a space-frame for CNC router).
A "long" time ago, in college, i took a Stick welding course and i recall being quite good at it. Now that i need to weld again, i would like to get some advice on what technique to use.
Unfortunately i don't currently own a wleding device so i will need to either rent or purchase one. I am kind of biassed towards Stick since i have done that before but i don't have 220V in my shop (only 110).
so here are some questions:
- do 110V Stick welders actually work reasonably well for a small,
- how hard is it to learn MIG/TIG if someone has done Stick before? any suggestions on devices there?
any help is welcome. thanks a lot in advance.
