got a free little 115v 70 amp stick. It's my first welder. picked up some little 6013 rods. Here's one of my welds after about an hour or so of practice...

Yup. Not a piece under any strain and the heat transfer is still decent. All critical components get full welds or tig welded as in the pic above.

Here is a pic that demonstrates that. Tube is not that important but the D-ring is.

I'm in the states currently, practicing my arc and tig welding. Here's a vertical up; chubby, but I've gotten much better at my puddle control, so I'm happy

Tig aluminum/steel butt joints- what a challenge! After about 8 hours of lab time (not only on butt joints), this was all i could muster

Here's a couple from Friday at work, I was welding two sticks of 1/4" angle together for a project at work. The welds needed to be as flush as possible and will be ground flat with a flap wheel so that the angle can be used as a mounting surface.

Made the battery tray last night for the Willys, it's probably WAY over kill, but that battery isn't going to go anywhere And any chance I can get to get in some fab and welding practice, I'll take it.

I can grab the mount and shake the entire jeep all over the place, and it doesn't budge. It's bolted to the frame, so I can remove it if needed for whatever reason. I have hooks that grab to the bottom, and a bar that goes over the battery, I'll put those and the battery in tomorrow. I still need to trim the ends off of the horizontal pieces that stick out. Still never to happy with the way the welds look, but oh well I'll spray it black.

I decided to try my hand at aluminum arc welding today. I've been arc welding (steel) off and on for probably 7-9 years. Its a hobby of mine, I love being able to make my own stuff. Anyway back to the aluminum welding. I spent roughly 15min screwing around on some pipe and below are some pics of my results. I was using an Idealarc R3R- 300 (set to reverse polarity) with 1/8" E4043. I know the welds aren't pretty but I don't think they came out too bad considering I have never welded aluminum before.

2nd pass (trying to dial in amps and arc force)

5th or 6th pass (kinda getting the hang of it)

This is probably my 17th pass give or take. I think they're getting progressively better.

I bet that aluminum blows through quickly, eh?



Some more welds from the supports on my battery tray. Over kill, I know! And probably thicker than I should be welding on my 110 power, 3/16" flat bar and 1/8" angle iron. It's what I had laying in the garage.

You bet your *** it does . The second I form a puddle it starts to blow through. I have the arc force turned down to almost zero and my amps at roughly 50. I'm going to lower the amps more and see what happens.

Battery tray looks good.
