Out of curiosity what thickness do you generally weld up to ?
3 or 4mm mate
fair enough quite thin stuff then really. you shopuld test it at 6mm to see if you blow the fuse lol
well true but i like using arc on 6mm as I have a **** load of rods to use up
Thats fair enough, my boss gave me a box the other week.
im in process of making a load of steel sheet benders out of 6 mmm angle iron im off 2 buy 100 lengths in the morning before the bloody lockdown will give me plenty to do in my shed hahahah
I made one of them but only required minimal welding which was only on some spacers and the bolt ends that hold down the sheet being bent and hinges.
Aaso made a sheet metal roller which required a little more welding lol
I've got 8 or nine with the ones I bought my self I got 7 with the pickhill bantam I've put them all in the airing cupboard where the boiler is keep then nice and dry got her indoors moaning why u putting that lot in the cupboard hahaha
