    replied to "Vintage" C Channel welding
    instead of grinding, try using your torch to clean off the rust, just heat it where the weld will be, cuz, badly rusted steel is usually pitted, and grinding it takes off too much steel

    replied to MIG welding finicky-ness
    with time and practice, this wont be an issue, it will come second nature, also you will learn to vary the angle and stick out to increase your capabilities of welding with the mig. example, welding this sheet, afraid of blow thru, give it a litle more stick out, if running cold, reduce stick out, keep...
