Thank you Brian, that means alot coming from person in the trades......My late brother taught me how to weld when I was 11 years old ,never welded professionally other than some welding I had to do on various jobs that I had over the years. He told me that a person that can weld can always find a job....well maybe...but I have enjoyed it and plan on teaching my grand son to weld when he gets old enough. We all need to pass on something to this next generation if at all possible.

try it, you'll like it...

a less skilled individual with any piece of equipment is likely to get sub-par results.

ogre i did my whole frame and a lot of the sheet metal mods with a 110v lincoln flux core welder that i picked up at hd for $300. it's always ready and i have never run out of shield gas...

those that have never used flux core welders are the main distractors to it's use.

Shelby1 Thank you! for all the replies and kind words . I need to post this also,my brother-in -law saw this post here at my home last night and said that people might get the idea that the weld was made horizontal ....sorry I did not think about that all I thought about was posting the best pic I had ,so here is the pic that of the weld in it correct orientation. I apologize as I was not trying to miss lead any one .

Ford Junkie Clean is the ticket to any welding! Nice job. I've used the little flux wire welders before for Field repairs on farm stuff and had no complaints with them. Hard to get stuff prepped when your trying to get a crop in so Field stuff ain't pretty around here just functional.

jonahb Good old flux core e70t-11, this is similar (I use 212mp) to the same wire I weld with at work when I am outside (and in a hurry 5/64 diameter). I always found that that wire will make a very nice vertical too when you get the heat just right. The only drawback about the 211mp you use is that after you weld (multipass) over 1/2 is that the elasticity is lost , the 212 is good for an 3/4 to inch thickness. I have used this for piling and other structural steel with great success an I always found that the 212mp has more spatter than 211.

Shelby1 In addition I have been told and read post s all over the net how much a piece
of junk that flux core welders were and how bad they were about leaving splatter. The only time that has happened to me was on some rusty metal that I did not clean good enough.......Surprised me too!!!

Shelby1 This is what it was welded with......A surplus store refurbished wire welder that I paid 45 bucks for, and the wire that was used.I have put ramp pins on 5 trailers to hold the ramps in place and to my surprise most all of the welds turned out like the one in the pic.....

I wish!!!...funny that is exactly what my brother -in-law who is a pro welder and is certified in just about every form of welding there is said, but it is not how I welded it .I know when I post how it was welded no one is going to believe me.

OneMoreTime That can be done with a MIG with the right size wire, the right heat and technique,,
