RE: Welders and Welding
What kind of welding?

Field and shop are different, requiring different set ups.

Mig/TIG/ARC and cutting are all different.

I have a TIG set up in my studio that I use for steel, aluminum and stainless. Its 200amp so I can weld 1/4" fairly easy. If I want to weld all day (I dont) set up a water cooler system.

MIG and ARC dont need water coolant. Both use a flux to cover the electrodes and especially you see a lot of guys using "flux core" to weld up steel out in the field. Most of the big diesel welders sitting on the backs of dually pick ups are ARC.

MIG is more likely to be seen in a shop, is fairly easy to learn as well, and can weld fast, likely the fastest of the different types. Its nicknamed "squirt gun" for the point and shoot action.

TIG is my favorite. It has amazing penetration, allows the welder to add filler as needed, has amazing accuracy (laser like, if a small tungsten is used) and leaves little to no grinding. Its also the cleanest for aluminum and stainless, just wire brush the burn off and its fine.

For stacking paper, get a dually/welder set up and move where pipelines construction is at. Count $$$ and learn how to be a fat, ignorant cunt.
