the question I have is about the amps. I asked about stick welding 1/2 mild steel before and everyone said to use 250 amps (for single pass). So I know this probably basic info, but could I use a 200a machine and just do multiple pass. I have access to a 200a machine. I don't need to weld that thick but 1 or 2 times a year, so if I don't HAVE to buy a 250a I would wait to buy it.
Thanks Dean
