  • Mig welding stainless exhaust tubing

    I am swapping mufflers on my truck and my exhaust tubing is aluminized stainless and my new muffler is stainless. Will I have to switch to stainless wire to get a good weld? What would happen if I welded it in with regular .030 wire and steel mix 75/25 gas? thanks, Brian

    the weld would not be rust resistant. but you can get a solid weld, you just lose its rust controle propertys.
    thanks for the help

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

      The rust will propagate from the weld into the SS as well rusting the entire thing.
