    I got some that have much better appearance, those were simply showing how to heater up. Guy can get distracted with personal lessons.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Found these 2 pieces I had made for temp deal 30 yrs ago, maybe more. At the time we never considered a grinder or any way to do this but a torch. Wanted a 3/4 draw pin and 7/8 hole. Well 13/16 . Today had to really look after some time and weather to see this all hand cut in couple minutes, only finish was chipping hammer.

    I just really got into using magnets for positioning. I almost always use clamps and squares.

    Well, I learned something... actually 2 things... that black layer between the two pieces of steel on a welding magnet is PLASTIC (rubber?). Also, the fumes from that black layer burning are enough to really screw up a weld.

    Can’t get it that close to the weld or it will pull the wire into the magnet. I’m surprised you got the magnet to that point

    Stick welding - if the magnet is big enough to bend a 6011, I'd be afraid to be near it. Plus, I was welding a corner joint on pretty thin metal. I DID notice a bit of funky arc blow and I do know that was from the magnet, I expected that.

    I never considered that it'd pull welding wire around, though. That's really interesting! I might have to try that... probably been 2 years since I plugged in the MIG... maybe a year and a half. Total, I probably have 20 hours on a MIG machine couldn't count the hours on a stick machine. I just never took the time to get proficient with wire welding.

    Like I said, I never really used magnets before. Just decided I'd try something different. I didn't expect I'd have to learn how to use a freakin magnet. LOL

    I used to have a problem even getting a tack on with mig at my last job, if the magnet was too close. You were hear the metal undercut from the wire getting dragged a crossed it too fast towards the magnet. I’m surprised you stick weld if u got a mig. I got a lot to learn with stick, I was just thinking about firing one of mine up yesterday, I got 3 stick welders

    For a real career welder wants to move around good stick skills are outstanding. Same for use of a torch.

    I was tought to stick weld when I was really young. Just seems easier to me. Once you get your technique down, welding 16 gauge or thinner isn't a problem.

    I didn't realize how out of practice I am till a few days ago when I was welding some 14 gauge. 2 or 3 years ago, I was welding up 16 gauge exhaust pipe without an issue. Just 3/32 6010 and 6011. I started with the wire welder, then decided I was better off with the stick machine LOL

    I've just never taken the time to REALLY learn MIG.

    Drag it outside on a nice day and burn some rod. nothing more satisfying than seeing a 4" caterpillar of 7018 slag curling up off a hot weld bead.

    I need to fire up my old Idealarc also.... love that machine.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Welding up these display bases and after a dozen or so get burned out on the squirt gun and decided to play around with some aluminum. Butt welded these pieces with 4043 and put in the vise to check the quality. I make a lot of steel stars but the aluminum ones are more fun and lots of practice. Pieces are .125 6061 and welded with 4043.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    First job in 2 weeks that required welding, Had a Cat C15 in yesterday with 4 broken exhaust manifold studs. Used the wirefeed to build up the broken stud and then welded a nut to the nub. All of them were broken off 1/2 a thread in.
