  • mild steel welded to chromoly

    Okay. i am building a mini dune buggy. I want to make the frame out of chromoly. I am having all the mounts for steering, engine mounting, and suspension all laser cut from 1/4 inch mild steel plate.

    Id like some opinions on how well mild steel will weld to the chromoly tubing. What filler rod should be used? and should it be heat stressed?

      Nothing that i can see.The info was correct
      Maybe he felt that this was the correct forum to ask a Motorsports Question.

      No need to preheat ,when doing this.
      we do it it all the time.
