    Thats funny. I bought all three( Tri-Mix, 75%-25%, and Argon) so I would never have this problem. I recc tri-mix. Get a 20cf bottle. You might need it sooner then you think.

    keep in mind without the proper gas and wire you may get hold but will not get weather proof. if you want to keep it rust free you need to do it right. or paint after to rust proof.
    thanks for the help

    LOL thanks James, but rusting out is the least of my worries.

    I have got 2 fixed wheels on my SS BBQ and they roll in the wrong direction, gonna cut them off and rotate them 90 degrees...

    You live in a desert, it's a BBQ. Cut 'em, rotate 'em, weld 'em. Your buddies are jeepers, if they notice, give 'em a beer. If they're golfers, they don't know what a weld is.

    LOL great thinking.
    if rust is not a problem just hit them with steel solid wire and C-25 and they will hold fine.

    for that little bit, give the C25 a shot. I've used it with good results, but I was just welding stainless onto a mild steel bearing surface to be machined down. I prefer the tri-mix, but for a small weld, will not go through the B.S. of switching the tank. Also if you're worried about spatter protect the surrounding metal well. I get alot of spatter no matter what I do. I could use some advice on that if anyone has any. It drives my machinists crazy.

    Anti-spatter spray?

    SavageSunJeep, get 'er done with what you got and post a pic.
    Forget about welding, can you just bolt it on?

    LOL, good reading here on Sun morn. All my friends are Jeepers no golfers for sure.

    Splatter, sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't, cannot say for sure why. But for aboout $25 bucks or so I can fix your splatter problems forever.

    1) Harbor Fright angle grinder w/60 grit flap sander wheel

    2) Harbor Fright angle grinder w/steel wire wheel

    Total cost about $25, my problem solved, LOL.
