    This is a very new site, so I've been surprised about the number of e-mails I've received asking for advice on MIG welding.

    The e-mails have all been about interesting aspects of MIG welding. They've been about general technique, equipment, car repairs, and even art sculptures. All of the questions and answers would benefit other people, so it's good to put this sort of thing on a forum.

    Please share your experiences with MIG welding. Ask questions, post what you've learned, or just chat about welding in general. Your information will help other people in their quest for that perfect weld.

    :D

    Well, i have found this site this evening, and am more than happy to give guidance and advice to any that need it!
    You can count on it being sound advice, as my trade is fabrication....

    It's great to have you on the forum Hitachimad. Welcome.

    It's only after starting the forum up that I realise how much I don't know about welding. There are a lot of questions here I can't answer. It's good to see people who are willing to share their knowlege.

    :D

    Hitachimad, Welcome to the forum and thanks for your answer to my question.
    Smoke (Fluxweld), sparks, fire (if you aren't careful), electricity and molten matal adds up to magic!!
