  • Weld shield walls/curtains?

    I have a rather cramped garage, so I want to put up some sort of wall or curtain around where I will be using the MIG. Not much of a clue as to what material I should use -- suggestions?

    If you go with a wall, a simple stud wall in either wood or metal studs with a sheetrock covering should be more than sufficient. Remember to tape and mud the joints. If you feel you need more, hardie panels, hardieboard, whatever trade name it goes by in your region.

    If on the other hand you wish to go with curtains, try here...
    Miller 251...sold the spoolgun to DiverBill.
    Miller DialArc 250
    Lincoln PrecisionTig 275
    Hypertherm 900 plasma cutter
    Bridgeport "J" head mill...tooled up
    Jet 14 X 40 lathe...ditto
    South Bend 9" lathe...yeah, got the change gears too
    Logan 7" shaper
    Ellis 3000 band saw
    Hossfeld bender w/shopbuilt hyd.
    Victor Journeyman torch and gauges
    3 Gerstner boxes of mostly Starrett tools
    Lots of dust bunnies
    Too small of a shop at 40 X 59.

      You also could mig a small 6' X 6' or what ever size you need frame made of old steel bed frames or sq tubing...mount caster wheels on it and use metal building siding to sheet it.

        Harbor freight sells welding blankets dirt cheap. They hold up ok, but are cheap enough to replace once they wear.
