  • Lurker here!!

    Hey guys

    I have been lurking here since I got my MM175(3 months). I am in the middle of a CJ7 rebuild and figured no better time to learn a great skill than now. Welding has been pretty fun. But I can see why I payed my buddy all those years for his skills. It is an art form.

    I have yet to find a good photo gallery of " The Good,the bad,the ugly" welds that is. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Pics of my project can be seen here. www.Robocon2003.com
    Your comments on how I can make this safer and better are always welcome.


    Thanks

    The Miller teaching package has a poster showing good and bad welds. You could try the education section of the main Milllerwelds.com site.
    It's not the voltage that gets you, it's the amps.

      Welcome aboard!

      When I started, I welded up coupons and dragged 'em around to a couple of local shops and bugged the folks with my buggered-up scraps for advice. To my surprise, everyone I met was friendly and helpful (after the obligatory laughter). Looking at the real thing is so much more informative than a pictue, and getting the advice and counsel of professionals is a big bonus.

      Good luck.
