There have been many times on the homestead when I would like to have been able to fabricate metal items. There is a lot of old metal pipes, rods and plates in the woods from old oil wells.
Well, I can now do it.
I picked up a very low cost flux welder at Harbor Freight.
I have not welded before. I have done a lot of soldering, including micro-miniature electronics and copper plumbing. Welding is similar but much more . . . dangerous, I guess. My first attempts were not great, but as I practiced I started to get the hang of it.
I can’t do very large projects but I think I can get done what I need to do. I’ll start with a little work on the Jeep.
Next up. I’d like to try some gas welding and cutting.
