|With all the work that has to be done
on the chassis, a welder would come in very handy. I'm use to using a
TIG welder at work so that's what I bought for home too. My daughter and
step boy will benefit from this as well because they both have trucks
that need lots of brackets and things welded.
The TIG stands for "Tungsten Inert Gas"
which means a shielded gas surrounds the area that is getting welded and
keeps the atmosphere out that can oxidize the weld. This makes for a
very strong weld and is clean (no slag to mess with).
I went the
Lincoln Electric TIG 175 model. This
unit has 175 amp output which will weld 1/4" thick steel with no
problem. It will also weld Stainless steel and Aluminum too.
