    Good morning all,
    Im currently planning to build a sheep handling system which will consist of hurdles and gates and once i get brave maybe a shedding gate or weigher..

    i'll be running off my home 13amp fuse so 130amp max setting should keep my fuse in trak.

    I will be making these hurdles out of 20mm box x 2mm thick.

    what size wire would you reccommend to ensure good weld with Mild steel as above size?

    thanks

    Cool! A mystery welder.

    I am going to guess that this is a MIG process and you don't want to use shielding gas so here it is:

    .035" Self Shielded Flux Core wire (E71T-GS) @ 145-155 ipm @14 15 Volts.

      Sorry for the mystery..
      you are correct- Mig 160 amp and will be used with Agrosheild Universal.
      Mig is Clarke 160TM if that helps but i doubt you get this in the states.

      Im UK based but this site has great detail so thought id join in and hopefully show my wares when i get onto starting..

      thanks for the reply

      cheers

        Before you start, buy a handful of spare fuses!

          He's on 220v @ 13amp fuse, should be ok up to about 16v on a mig.
