Did you tie the coil buckets together?
Take it however you want, the welds are garbage, they are not strong, you have no clue what you are talking about. The fact that you are so confident in them is funny.Haha shit! Good to know! And yea, idk what that dudes problem is. Not beautiful but plenty strong. Some of his welds must have craked....
Also iv always read that you want to keep control arms as long and horizontal as possible. Especially for radius arms. And ~40" put the frame brackets right under/behind the trans crossmember. Most things kinda just had to go where i could fit them
No pre heat, ever, but it would help with thicker metal. Striking an arc hasn't been an issue unless my ground is bad, or I'm trying to weld on dirty metal. The only trouble I've had with it is the liner came undone at the curve before the handle itself. Since i run. .035 Flux core, i don't need argon, so i pulled the liner out from the handle back to just before the curve, and no issues since, but i do need to reline it, and will once i get a new mig. Thinking of going with a larger machine and plasma cutter if i can find a decent buy both for a percentage off deal.Out of curiosity, did you have any troubles with said welder? Like needing to pre heat, or striking an arc or anything like that?
You run a pattern on sheet metal and with spray transfer? :flipoff2:You seriously have no clue about welding, you still need to run a pattern with mig, pretty common knowledge.
OK, you got me there.You run a pattern on sheet metal and with spray transfer? :flipoff2:
A good hot pass can be done with no weave. It really depends on the welder, the machine, the position, etc. No one size fits all rule here, but I agree with you here, dude should have tied that in a lot better.
OK, we are not too different in the respect of our rigs. I have to admit, i weaved all my welds together. Lately I've been doing circles, i think they're better, both looking and penatrating.OK, you got me there.
I used to work in a shop with 20+ mig welders, I did some time as a welder, but I don't claim to be a "professional" not one of those guys would weld anything over 14g in a straight line.
I also built my whole rig with a 120v mig, with argon, including chopping and rebuilding front and rear frame ends.
Not that any of it matters, OP doesn't want to listen to anyone.
