    I would invest in some heavy welding gloves and a work apron too, but both can be had for cheap at Bunnings.

    • …and some magnetic angle clamps

  • I'm no expert at welding -(I only have an arc welder ) , but I would consider paying extra for gas in a mig welder.

    Apparently gasless is good for outside as the shielding flux doesn't get blown away.

    I have heard a few times of beginners having difficulty with gasless though.

    Anyhow here is an explanation that may help other newbies.

    What are y'all welding? I need an excuse to buy one.

  • Looking to make stuff/frames out of square galvanised tubing - would this do?

    • Gal is a nightmare to work with - you have to grind it back near every joint or it just won't cooperate.

      Apart from that point, this seems a perfectly acceptable entry MIG; the Bunnings Bossweld M100 is $299 as an equivalent.

      • Cool thanks. I know I'll have to remove the galvanised coating at the welds but this is only for the occasional use. I have a particular project in mind and once done probably will rarely touch the welder.

        • If it's the square tube you get at bunnings it can be a pain to weld. Usually has a median thickness of 1.6mm and once you do surface prep you'll be dropping it even lower, which makes it very each to punch holes through.

          Also get an extraction fan or weld out in the open, zinc fumes are nasty.

  • Better off with a second hand Unimig gas unit with a bit more amps.
