Welding is a skill that’s incredibly useful and a lot of fun, too. We’ve written quite a bit about it — including a few projects you might want to try — but today I ran across a great “getting started” guide from the people over at Custom Classic Trucks. Like us, they’re enamoured with the MIG/wire process, which is way, way easier than stick welding. So if you’ve tried stick welding and hated it, you might want to give wire welding a chance. Try it — you’ll like it!
Their how-to features the Millermatic 140 — a small, capable, and affordable MIG welder that’d make an excellent choice for an enthusiastic home/garage hobbyist — and walks you through selecting equipment, setting it up properly, and making welds, all with lots of pictures.
