Guys i am look to purchase a cheap welding machine to practice with when am home. I want to practice my pipe welding that am struggling with right now. I am doing Stick welding with 6010 and 7018 rods 3/32 to 1/8 rods. If i use a machine that is ac weld only will there be a difference in my weld? Will it be the same as using dc welding machine. Will it be harder easier? the machine i was looking at getting is a machine i can just plug in right at home.
250 AMP 110/220 Volt Coil AC ARC Welder Welding Machine OR
Arc 160AMP 160 110V Arc Welder Stick Rod 2 to 4mm w/ Welding Mask
NEED SOME HELP WITH THIS GUYS RIGHT AWAY THANKS.
