    On the mill scale I have had good luck on smaller stuff just buffing it off with a wire wheel on a grinder. Sandblasting is best, but this works when you don't have one.

    Default re mill scale

    in my experience ive found that there is a world of difference in the quality of your welds just from removeing te scale off any parts your going to weld.ceirtain jobs demand for what they call white clean, no grease mill scale etc. Definately makes for nicer finishes take care

    wire wheel brushes on the grinder work great at removing scale

    Man of Steel,
    thank you VERY much for your input!!!! I'll do that and compare it to the grinder and see which one holds out longer (I read your public profile, so I think you know what you're talking about also). Grinding stone s&cks

    Default mill scale

    hi bert, just a suggestion:if you have any scrap with mill scale on it try welding one that youve cleaned vs one that you havent, quite a difference in the quality of the weld and less chance of any impurities getting in there also. it must be nice in hawaii ,my woman and i are going to tie the knot on a beach there one day when i can put my stinger down long enough
