Welders - TIG or MIG

I got a wrench... someone have a hemostat, a multimeter, a caliper? We don't always have the right tool for the job, find out what might work for you. We're talking shop, tools...

Welders - TIG or MIG

Post by admin »

Need to start working my way around to The big box stores... need a mig/tig welder, prefferably Lincoln Electric... Lin. Elec. seem to have all the right pieces and parts for a novice metal-smith. NOW, noobs need to start somewhere and $2300 is not something that sounds doable. What say you?

Don't forget, cutting (some torch), gas requriements and rods...

Lin. Elec TIG - $2500 +/- Doable?

Lin. Elec. MIG - $600 +/- More/Less Doable?

Where possible, add a “lighting axe” as Derek from Vice Grip would say... need to find a Oxy-A cutter to the mix.
