    A friend of mine uses "Stargon" from Praxair for the stainless that he uses in his sculptures. He dosen't know what the mix is though. You could google it though.

    I have a little Lincoln SP100 w/.023 SS and tri mix that works quite well for the little SS I do.

    Default Almost every place has 240V or 208V

    I have a secret weapon... I made a welder plug with 2 25' 12ga extension cords going into it. Both neutrals are tied to the center leg, and each hot is tied to the outter legs. The other ends of the cords have standard 120V male plugs. Plug it in one outlet and plug it into another outlet on a different circuit. If it's a residential or commercial 120/240 1 phase service, 50% of the time, there will be 240V across the two hots. If not, try another plug on another circuit.

    If it's commercial 120/208 3 phase, 67% of the time, you will get 208V. If not, try another plug.

    You will get enough power to run a good size welder or plasma cutter.

    How safe is the secret weapon? I guess it depends what exactly you plug into and that the equipment is auto line sensing...

    fuse tig the seams. Done tons of stainless work and all I have ever done is fuse it. My old shop had a 12ft wide hydrolic brake and we bent them up in house to avoid having to use seam sealer. You do not want to use that in this application. It will collect food and crap and defeet the purpose of having S.S. countertops.

    Get the stuff bent up then do the welding and finishing yourself.
