Re: blowout welding
Thanks guys, I think one of my problems was the welder I was using. I bought a Lincoln 140 from Lowes which only has A,B,C and D heat settings and I couldn't fine tune it for lighter gauge metal. Well after a few weeks of burning holes in metal practicing welding I finally went to my local AIRGAS welding supply for help and info. The guy there told me I needed one with infinite settings so I could control the heat better and my welds would improve. Anyway I returned the 140 to Lowes and bought the 140C from AIRGAS which was $100 more and I'm getting much better results now.
Josh, thanks for the info., I'll try that technique when I get a chance to get back out to the garage. I checked out your Fabrication work on your FB page and I'll say that's some of the best looking welding I've ever seen. You do some excellent work for such young man and with skills like that you have a bright future ahead of you. Keep up the good work.
Doug, thanks for your help too, I've never heard it called a rosette weld but I googled it and found some helpful tips. I am going to get out to the garage this weekend sometime and practice my welding. Thanks again guys.
