Subsequently, question is, what kind of welder do I need to weld steel? For this reason, it is necessary to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each welding process. The most common welding processes used for fabricating metals are gas metal arc welding (MIG), flux cored welding, gas tungsten arc welding (TIG) and shielded metal arc welding (stick electrode).
People also ask, what type of welder is best for sheet metal?
Stick welders, TIG welders and others welders all have the ability to weld sheet metal but those in the know concede that a MIG welder is best for that job in most cases. MIG welders are easy to work with, do most sheet metal jobs rapidly, and leave a nice finished product too.
Are gasless MIG welders any good?
The advantage of gasless (other than saving on gas bottle rental) is the ability to weld in windy conditions. I tried it outside in a gusty wind, and as the photo shows the weld turned out just as good as the one I did inside. Normal gas shielded welding would have struggled in the slightest breeze.
