Hi Garrett

My name is Ethan, I run a small recently opened welding company in South Africa. I have been welding for a few years. I'm coded and weld anything from 1.6 mm plate to 2" plate daily. Manufacturing a whole range of agricultural implements.

Just wanted to let you know I've been using your vids and write ups to train my staff, so far I have trained 2 of my guys with completely no skills to a decent stitch. Great work.

Many thanks, Ethan van Jaarsveld

      I think it’s more making sure that you fit up the metal (no large gaps). Then you could actually weld it together with a 140 amp MIG welder.

    Garrett,

    I am a retired metallurgical engineer who has been a welding engineer for over 45 years. Liked your video and had one comment about your procedure for opening the gas tank. Before you open the tank valve, you should check/ensure that the regulator screw is backed all the way out so that the high pressure gas will not damage the bellows in the control section. You did say not to stand in front which is correct. I have other comments concerning welding safety that I will send you at another time. Remember a little knowledge can be dangerous when welding.

    Hey Garrett! This is just the video I’m looking for. Just a couple of questions. I have a mig welder being shipped to me as I write this. What is the deal with the tank? Do I buy one or rent one? And what is the going rate for shielding gas? I’m really exited to get going on this. @ 63 it’s about time I learned something new…lol

    • Garrett S.

      Reply Reply January 12, 2017

      Hi Steven, I would definitely buy your own tank. You avoid a monthly charge, and when you need more gas just take it into your gas supply house and exchange it for a full tank. It might cost you $35 to exchange your tank for a full tank of C25 gas. (That’s for a 125 cf tank)

    I’m 62 and would like to learn basic welding, primarily for simple project like outdoor tables and flower stands, as well as slight modifications to a utility trailer.
    I purchased flux-core welder (Pro-Series MMIG 125) from Home Depot on one of its daily specials a few months ago. I’ve experimented a little with it and really don’t care from the slag plus the wire control seems a bit inconsistent. I’d been thinking about buying a welder for a while and this was on sale for around $120, about $50 off the regular price.
    I also do woodworking as a hobby and should have known better than to expect a serious tool made in China to work well.

    Hello Garrett,

    Really love your video’s, just read an article in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel that MATC is offering a 2 month training course in welding for free, must be unemployed to qualify. My husband said that might be a waste of time because welding is a male dominated field and that it might be difficult getting hired or selling items because most male employers don’t like it when a woman does a mans job.

    I am currently on SSDI, I have a number of health issues that make working for someone impossible. My goal is to be self employed. I have a passion for creating things, I am an out side of the box thinker and I would love to learn to weld so that I dont have to depend on someone else to help me complete my projects.

    Is the ol boys network mentality still alive and well or do I have a chance at making my dream come true?

      I think flux core will be fine for a motorcycle frame. Just make sure you get a good hot weld because you don’t want this thing breaking when you’re doing 60 mph. If you’re not sure yet, I would hire someone to do it just because that’s no beginner welder job. Your life depends on it.

    Garrett, great video! I’m a fellow Texan living in Katy. I’ve got a brother and sister up in your neck of the woods (Leander and Round Rock). I’ve really just gotten interested in picking up welding. I really wanted to get a nice BBQ Smoker, but after looking at prices ($1000+) for the size I want, I decided that I could make one myself for much cheaper (and maybe even start selling them if I’m good enough at it). It would be great if you shot a video of a “smoker build”. I believe that there are many people out there that would be very interested in that. Keep up the great work!

    Hi,
    As a failed beginner(!), could you perhaps address some of the what went wrong stuff too? I am finding it difficult to retrain myself. Also how you calculate/adjust and typical wire feeds for different joints. My unit has only a high/low setting for current and the only real adjustment is the wire feed.

      Reply Reply August 29, 2013

      Hi Mike,

      If you’re machine only has a high/low setting then it’s probably a smaller 130 amp unit? If it is then the max thickness of metal you would probably want to try to weld it around 1/8″ and maybe 1/4″.

      Try this. Get you a piece of metal around 1/8″ and put the machine on high. Set your wire speed as low as it goes. Then, with one hand start running a weld bead and with the other hand slowly turn up the wire speed until it starts to crackle like bacon frying. When it sounds good and it’s running a bead nicely then it’s tuned.

      Hi Anthony,

      Good choice on getting a gas MIG. Although a flux core welder will do great for beginners, eventually you’re going to want to weld with gas for the clean weld appearance.

    Thanks. Just bought a Handler 140 so it sounds like it was a good choice for a hobby welder. I used to stick weld a lot but now I’m looking for something easy and clean. Thanks or the video to get me started.

      My Hobart 140 has been a good welder. Never had a problem with it, and it welds great.

      Hi Phil,

      I’m admittedly not the best stick welder myself. MIG welding is just my preference because it’s not difficult at all to start a weld.

      With stick it’s more difficult to strike an arc if you’re a complete beginner, and can be frustrating if all you want to do is lay a weld bead down so you can do a repair or start that project.

    I am new and want to learn how to weld.
    I have a bar-b-que pit that needs to be repaired. The metal is 1/4 in. thick.
    “Will the Hobart 140 mig welder be able to weld this bar-b-que pit.

      Reply Reply June 3, 2013

      Hi Manuel,

      Yes, the Hobart 140 would be able to weld it. For 1/4″ metal it will work fine. Just make sure the voltage is turned all the way up, and make sure you’re not rushing the weld. Go slow enough to get good deep penetration and you won’t have any problems at all.

    i am a welder and i think it’s awesome that you are doing this, i started with an old stick welder and only started because my oldest brother was big enough to put me in the combine (no really deep inside the combine) and coach me. it turned out to be a very valueable lesson. he doesn’t weld anymore but i can weld anything. i think you should mention how important those safety glasses are, i learned the hard way, even if you’re just tacking. great website!!!

    hello, i would first all like to inform you that i had massive stroke and paralyzed on my right side so a mig welder with one hand shall work ??? your video by far is awesome do you think a 90 to 125 mig would a beginners weld ?? where can i get anymore info $$ whatever.

      Reply Reply April 20, 2013

      Hi Jack,

      Sorry to hear about your stroke. Yes you can use your MIG welder one handed. That’s all it takes is one hand to hold the gun and push the trigger. Yeah, a 90 to 125 MIG will work good.

      Thanks for the kind words,
      Garrett

        Well it’s the only MIG I have ever used, so I can’t compare it to a AC machine. It can weld with 18V to 48V, I have always used 24 from two car batts in series. It is very simple, the only control is for wire speed, the distance the tip is held from the workpiece varies the amps( I guess?). I have used it for making prototypes for machines I build and find it very useful..

    Hello Mr. Strong!

    My name is Dave and I from Corpus Christi, TX. First of all fantastic video. Well thought out! I have no welding experience at all. My only suggestion would be to show how to set this Hobart Welder up from the beginning;just like it came out of the box! Since I am planning on buying the Hobart 140!

    Your website is make money welding! I want to make money welding; so maybe you could put a portfolio together of your past projects in degree of difficulty from the least to most difficult; with step by step video instruction!

    Keep up the Good Work!

    Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge with me and the public!

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Your friend,

    Dave

    I am trying to do some yard art type things.Would really like to know about welding without gas,trying to learn to help my mother get these yard decorations and learn to weld at the same time.Really excited to learn how and do this. I have a lincoln 3200 hd I think i need .035 flux core wire and rod tip for said wire. Trying to weld stanless steel.

      Hi Michael,

      When you’re welding stainless steel it’s best to use stainless steel wire with a shielding gas (either argon, or a tri mix) of helium, argon, and CO2. Just ask your welding supplier.

      It can be done using flux core mild steel welding wire, but you’re welding dissimilar metals and it’s going to be prone to cracking as well as rusting.

      If flux core is all you have, and you’re not worried about it looking nice then go for it.

        Garret recommend a choice? If you can from Home Depot or Lowe,s> say portable but with options to hook up larger cylinders. I like the yard art and stuff I can do with my 140 handler. that is what I mostly want to focus on. thank you John Moore
