    Hi , I've got some floor panels I want to weld , I've never welded before and know some of these are questionable , id rather buy a 2nd hand one for about £50 from one of you guys than a crap cheap new one for £75 that wouldn't weld foil , I specifically do not want a gas one , I live in the West Midlands , if anyone has one gathering dust from a project/Hobby they abandoned , id be happy to have a look , Thanks

    You can use it gasless flux core wire,but may have to change polarity? I did on mine.
    But main thing for thin stuff is being able to adjust to low amps.

    A £50 MIG welder in anyone's hands will possibly cause frustration.

    Take away the shielding gas, and it will probably cause more frustration.

    Put it in the hands of someone who has never welded before, and they may (or may not) give up quickly.

    Both the MIG welding process and the transition centre procedure like fire damage restoration utilize what's known as a wire welding machine. A wire welder varies from a procedure like stick welding in light of the fact and the metal that melts to make the weld dab, goes ahead a move of wire rather than a long steel bar.
