Project 22

Finally, we got a welder. It's a 220v, 120a MIG welder from Harbor Freight. Yes, it has a 15% duty cycle at full output, but at 50 amps, which is what you need to weld sheet metal, it's 80%. We also bought the replacement warranty and a gas regulator. We're using ER-70S-6 wire in the .023 size with 25% Argon/75% CO2 backing gas. The -6 is good for contaminated metals like on your ancient nasty car.

Anyways, it worked like a champ and cost $300. View the results.

This allowed us to finally mount the last flare.

Sheesh. Now we can start to finish.
