Lets see some more Stick welds!
nothing fancy just a cage mounting point (a little vertical and a little overhead). Welded using an ancient John Deere 200 amp ac machine and 7018 1/8" rods. Don't forget about the axle tubes in my first post too.

In fact thanks to your advice on the 3/32 7018AC rods the rest of my cage is an all stick welded assembly





Here's a partial pen stick weld to keep my bumpers end caps stuck in place. I was in a hurry to go get a burger (lunch break) when I made these an knew I was gonna grind em flat so i really didn't care how these looked. 7018 1/8"





I think we all know what this is! 7018 1/8" again. Not really visible but the side gears got two opposing edges flattened with carbon air arc gouging to provide a nice flat spot to weld that prevents them from EVER turning

some good lookin welds in here. wish i had some pics of the stainless stuff ive done at work, but i guess ill just have to show my super budget college welding skills. this is 3/8 beveled at a 45 with an 1/8 land on my 8.8, 3 passes with a lincoln 135 HD with .035 FC




doesnt hold a candle to a lot of these higher powered MIGs in this thread but goes to show a little 110 flux core can lay down some pretty good welds

heres the dring mount, 7018 on an old linocln 225


and these are my sliders, old no name 220 mig

Love this thread.

Don't have any real close-up pics of my welds, but here is one of some rough skid plate mods I was trying while attempting to dial in my old Millermatic 200.

Inherited this from my Dad when he died in 1994. Had no garage or anywhere to work with it, but I kept it all these years. Took it to the local welding place and had it serviced, and this was the first day I was using it.

Here's the best I can muster:
ok i have way more than 30 mins of welding time and weld with the same machine, my welds dont even look like that.

are you a magician?

Ha! I am by no stretch a magician. I can assure you, that weld is the exception and not the rule!

I can't speak for cummins5552, but I've been using an Esab MigMaster 250 for many years. It is a very good welding machine for what I paid for it, about $1600.00, brand new, back in the late 90's.

ESAB has been building welding machines for over 100 years, there is nothing wrong with their equipment.
