Default Angles, tubes & plate

Y'all have used for frame repairs/reinforcement?

My old friend Hank is going to re- teach me how to weld, it won't be pretty lol.

My thoughts are leaning towards square tubing, channel, and flat stock.

Yes I am aware there are frame parts available by Dorman which I may also get but for now I want to start collecting pieces of iron. Where I used to keep my boat they have lots of scrap iron laying around.

Very cool Bobby, what kind of welder are you using I picked up 125 amp flux wire welder. I think that's all I need for now, friend Hank has the larger welding equipment. He's even talking about getting a plasma cutter but I don't know at this point.

for what you need to do i think that critter will get the job done just fine.





i have a ramsond cut d50 for tig, stick, and plasma. its 110 or 220 depending on what i have to do..


i dont know where the fawk my buzz box went ....probably with my portoband...


the hackery done in the pictures was my lincoln hd 3500 mig....all of that welding was done with flux core 035 wire...110 volt wall plug.

so its gonna be nasty. but my truck will never be a looker.

i would have a 180 miller but my kids all gave up a gift to get the lincoln as a gift .... at the same time i went and finally bought me a 180 miller as a gift to myself... so i took my miller back ...that was not easy. glad i did not have time to open it up when i got home with it....that was 12-15 years ago i guess...


but i will use two or 3 car batteries or modify an alternator if i have to get something welded...
