I don't, but we have members who do. Look welding up in the archives.

Not enough information

You don't tell us much about yourself.  I'm dependent and wouldn't go anywhere near a welder.  If I weren't dependent on the thing, I'd probably give it a try.

We can tig and mig but not arc weld. Sorry, I don't weld so I don't know more than that but it comes up fairly regularly if you search the old posts. There have been discussions with lots of numbers and big welding words that went over my head tossed around :o)  Magnets are the issue, that's why arc is a no-no but the others are ok.  We do have members who have successfully arc welded.

These both have comments from Don B and Electric Frank (who passed, oh how we miss him!). Both are very knowledgeable and you can trust their advice.
