Thanks. They are just customer's jobs, built from drawings that they send me. I build all kinds of different things.

The main web is 3/8" thick, and the top wrap is 3/8" thick x 3/4" wide flatbar.

I just went today and bought my welder, miller 180 autoset. 783 plus tax, to bad the total came to 1426 with all the fixin's. 129 CF bottle too.


I bought a Huntsman element auto darkening hood, the guy said he has sold alot of them, and everybody seems real happy with them. I was looking at the miller digital elite which is 320, the huntsman element was 114 bucks.


Will the huntsman be ok?

The Huntsman Element is a great shield for the money,they were giving them out to us a few years ago at a nuclear power plant i was working and was very pleased with it

Congrats on the welder. I currently use the MM180 also and it has paid for itself dozens and dozens of times. You will be very happy with it.

For my situation however, I may upgrade to a MM212 down the road solely because of the 60% duty cycle versus the 30% the 180 has. But, it does take a lot of heavy burning to really hit the duty cycle. Building bumpers constantly like I do makes me hit the duty cycle on occasion.

Best of luck and post some pics of your beads when you get the machine up and running.

I believe I see some undercut, you maybe need to lower your amperage or/and decrease your speed so the groove fills properly.

Here's my stick welds on my new front bumper's winch plate.
used 6013 rod, multiple passes.


and some nuts :-)

That's really not too bad. It'll probably never break, being that it is a light hoop.

Ideally, a little more weld wire fed into the puddle would give you a "meatier"'(thicker) bead.

What are you using for amperage control, a foot pedal, a thumbswitch, etc.?

Messing with Tig welding aluminum


I hadn't messed with a stick welder for a long time before I did this. I recently picked up a Dialarc 250 for TIG but it will also stick weld. I haven't stick welded at all in about 3 years. Before that, I mainly MIG welded stuff. I only used the stick for heavy plate and structural tubing. I didn't do to bad but I figure I could always improve some. Any good tips or things you guys can tell I'm doing wrong? I know the first one is slightly undercut. I turned the amperage down slightly after that one.

it is just a scratch start thermal arc 95s, only control is on the machine. I had it set a little high.
