Im getting a mig for shop use and to fix things for my ranch. I was wondering how tempermental mig welding can be when it comes to welding on rusty material. I see a lot of people showing off their welds and it appears that are welding on steel that is almost fresh from the mill.
For me that would be a perfect world but we all know thats not possible.
I start of with a rusty plate and usually hit it with a brush wheel. Will that be enough. I also weld through painted material sometimes. This is all 6010 STick welding..
Will I have trouble with my MIG...
What have you guys learned about it or done.
