    I agree with Andy, MIG on the internals and TIG on external welds. It will be a great experience for the students! Good luck!

    Andy:
    Your right I was thinking in terms of easier to produce but tig would definently be prettier.

    If it were me, I'd do partly what PJS said and go MIG but I would do TIG for anything external that would be in plain view. I would MIG all the internals and do all TIG on outside corners and such.

    Welcome a-board

    I feel mig is easier and for large projects the weld consistancy will vary less with mig. Using SS wire and Tri-mix gas will do great, match the wire to the grade of stainless that your welding and it should be great.

    Hope this helps,

    tig on stainless

    Greetings, I teach a advanced high school power mechanics class. We will be building two new barbeque grills from stainless steel(big ones on a trailer). I have a tig welder set up with argon. My students have had great sucess on aluminum, and fair sucess on stainless, we will be using a pointed electrode with electrode negitive, gas flow ~ 17 cfm,, any other hints would be appriciated.. (or we could use our mig welder)
Working...
