I broke down today and bought a Mig welder, a Vulcan 140 which should meet my needs to do simple repairs rather than having the local welder take my money! And I get to learn a new skill too! First up will be some repair welds on my MacKissic Chipper which I messed up by hooking a chain around the feeder to help lift it on the 322....hmmm the metal there wasn't really as strong as I thought, or subconsciously I needed an excuse to get the welder. Absolutely an area out of my current skillset so I will likely be asking a lot of questions. I am watching a lot of youtube videos but I think this is one of those things that until you start burning metal you'll never really grasp properly.
