I have been looking for a TUBING MILL AND THOSE GUYS HAVE GIVEN ME THREE OPTIONS FOR WELDING. ONE IS THE ARGON WELDING, SECOND IS THE ULTRASONIC WELDING, THIRD IS THE PLASMA WELDING. CAN YOU GUYS PLEASE HELP ME OUT WITH THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT WELDS.I AM A NEWBIE TO THIS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

oh yeah, i said i would throw down some welds if i rembered....well i did believe it or not! so here they are.

this one is on a piece of 16 ga square tube (couldn't find any sheet scrap) used 1/16" filler

last but not least a fillet connecting the 16 ga to the 14 ga

these aren't perfect by any means the fillet was a bit undercut and the 16 ga flat weld has some crows feet but just something for you to look at i guess
