Hi Guys,
I'm new to mig welding. I just upgraded the lincoln wirefeed that I got in highschool to a Millermatic 135. I'm looking at building some stainless steel handrails and other various pieces for my boat.
I will be welding 1" tube with a 0.065" wall thickness. Seems like most pros use TIG. Can 0.065" stainless be welded satisfactorily with a MIG? Any advice? How do I remove heat discoloration? The tube has a mirror finish, can I match the weld finish? If so how?
Anyone have any experience and/or advice on bending 1" stainless?
Thanks in advance,
Mike
