1/2" is not too much to weld with Oxy/Acetylene but it would require a good deal of skill and the right equipment. First off you are going to need a very large tip but unless you are already well versed in the art of torch welding I would suggest finding an arc welder to do this, what you are trying to do is tricky even though it can be done. What kind of equipment do you have and what size torch?

There is another fellow on here that has welded (if I remember correctly) about 2" thick steel with his torch and maybe even a bit thicker so maybe he will see this and have some input.
