    Default The Correct Answer is "Yes Dear"

    After my wife encourged me to purchase a new welder 2 1/2 years ago, I really had no choice, when she asked me to fabricate a new wrought iron railing for the side of the steps. Attached are some pictures:

    Nice work. Also, very good idea considering where you live.

    Nice work.


    Btw, my wife encouraged me to spend the money to get a machine too.
    I have to build stuff for her now, but it's fun -- welding is welding I guess.

    From page 50 of the Miller Gas Metal Arc Welding manual:

    "(Deoxidizing helps remove oxygen from the weld, helping to reduce porosity and therefore weld defects.)...Because of the heavy deoxidation of this wire it can be used for welding rusty or dirty steels, with a possibliity of some sacrifice of weld quality depending upon the condition of the metal."

    I grind and degrease the metal to clean it as well as I can, but sometimes it is difficult to clean the back side.
