DylBandit Posted May 17, 2019 Share Posted May 17, 2019 Just wanted to make a thread about welding because that's what I'm currently doing in college. So far, it's really fun and I'm still new to it, but I'm adapting to it pretty rapidly. Currently, my favorite welding method as of right now is MIG or (Gas Metal Arc Welding)/(Metal Insert Gas). It's really fun and the most easiest to learn in my opinion because it's more point and shoot. The most challenging part about MIG in my opinion is trying to dial in the correct settings and find the sweet spot adjusting voltage and wire speed. I'm also taking classes in Metal Fabrication and Oxy-Acetylene which is also going really well. In Metal Fabrication, we are currently making fishing lures and making roses out of sheet metal. I'm really interested in the art side of welding just because of the potential there is when creating something. As for my Oxy-Acetylene class, we are currently learning how to use the filler rod and puddle control which is a bit challenging but still fun at the same time. If you are a welder and you have welded before, I would like you to share your experiences and maybe share some photos of what you made! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
