    new to the site

    Hello first time posting on the site, currently using a millermatic 350p and welding anything small, up to 150 ton 10,000psi hydraulic rams/cylinders. Hoping to learn the best way for welding these rams/cylinders with my current setup. Using LA100 .045 solid wire with 90/10 gas.

    Inquire with Hobart or Lincoln for the type of wire recommended. Use the phone. Forget emails.

    welcome. post some pictures in the projects section that usually gets some responses. I have always wondered how they build the hollow ones for pulling rod and things like that. the ones your building are they machined after welding?
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    hey thanks guys! I will post a few pics that i posted yesterday regarding these cylinders. They get machined and honed out, then I weld a threaded cap on one end, then they go back into a big cnc lathe and finish machining them.
