    Gotta be some massive concrete & rebar in the ground just to hold the columns alone not counting the load from above.

    I wonder what brand of 110 Mig they used. Gonna take the assumption they used .023 wire.

    I'll bet it was 5/64ths 6013. You gotta consider it's outside in the windy city. There's no way the gas could hang from the "Chicago electric" or as they probably say "electric" MIG welder.

    The difference between theory and practice is that in theory there is no difference.

    I passed a huge weldment north bound on I81 this afternoon , I wanted to get a picture but I was going past the rest area when I saw he was stopper there. It had a super thick H beam with boxed webs on both sides .I was pretty sure they didn't use a 110 mig on that.

    We used 110-volt Mig welders to weld down these box girders for this bridge project.
