    TIG.
    Argon + 308L filler rod. (1/16")

    I can't imagine doing this any other way, for a single table base.

    +1 on waiting to tig weld it. Not having as much experience as other on here with welding stainless, but enough experience to help someone if I can, tig is gonna be your best bet.

    I prefer using a gas lense and try to back shield if you can.

    What's the stainless for? What's your project?

    Next year is 10 days. Wait until then to do it right with argon. Why no argon for so long? Come on over I have a few hundred spare cu.ft.

    Should I try to MIG weld it?
    I would wait till I had Argon and TIG it

    you would need the Argon or TriMix anyway if you decided to go with MIG...

    The TIG gives you much better control... especially down round the 40amps you need to be at for welding 1mm
