Welding lesson

This weekend, while in Indiana for Thanksgiving my brothers and I talked about welding techniques - which resulted in me stopping by my brother's house on Friday morning for a quick lesson...

Under his expert eye I learned a new welding technique (MIG) that we think will be perfect for what I want to be doing.

After some practice I'm going to weld two pieces of metal together - a thin piece and a thick piece

Not quite "stacked nickles" but not too bad
for my first time. It would definitely
hold together, even though it's not all that
pretty - and that's the important thing.
So now I'm planning to get a MIG welder in January. I'll have to decide if I want the flux-core set up or the gas set up.
