    I will be posting new metal projects in the coming days using this welding process
    so watch out. Kinda excited with the new projects in line.

      Any updates? I want to venture into this too..... not that I hate my stick welds but I want to learn new things. Long time no post since I started stick welding back in 2012

        Bro if you are really interested in learning how to Mig weld, then go for it, buy yourself
        a Mig machine, its not really hard to lean how to apply the welds, its more cleaner than
        using a stick welder. Only thing is its more expensive compared to a stick welder.

        Plus you have to buy yet a tank of Co2 or a tank of mixed gas (80/20) argon/Co2 as your
        shielding gas, then a roll of Mig wire. Now if its ok with you all this expenses then go go
        for it and enjoy learning the process of Mig welding !

          go for it
          for a while now i've been using flux-core but just recently i got co2 and a 5kg spool of solid MIG wire. i'm still learning MIG but i gotta say that it won't totally replace other welding methods coz MIG has low penetration and i only have the small Cigweld 135 so i'm limited to thin material. but that's also the advantage of MIG, it's great for thin material. today i welded 1.3mm wall pipe w/ MIG, which was pretty much impossible to do w/ fluxcore

          btw if you'll get a MIG machine get one w/ continuously-variable voltage setting. my cigweld 135 only has 4-step voltage control so you can't fine tune it.

            Since there is no "+new topic" icon so i can create a New Thread,i will post here: Where can i find welding Gas for both Stainless and Mild steel in Cagayan de Oro?

            Also where could i find High quality Flux Core Wire. I bought a cheap roll off Lazada...and it acts cheap also!

              Bro GhostDogg,

              If you will just click the MIG/GMAW ( Metal Inert Gas ) under the Metal Working Forum,
              you will see there the "New Topic" so you create and post your own New Thread.

              If you are planning on using a shielding gas for your Mig welder specially for mild steel,
              you can use Co2 but for stainless steel, you will need Co2/Argon mixed gas (80%/20%).
              Ask welding shops in your area where they purchase their oxygen and acetylene tanks,
              contact their supplier if the have Co2 or mixed gas.

              For a good quality Flux Cored wire, you may contact JayL of MyBenta.com, medyo mahal

              Hope this helps !!

                yeah there are lots of crappy flux-core wire. good FC wire makes a HUUUUUUGE difference! i'm using kiswel K-NGS, just search i have a thread about it. it's not cheap though it's like over 3k i think...

                if you have a powerful MIG machine you might just want to save the money you'd spend on expensive fluxcore wire and just go directly to MIG. my 5KG roll of MIG wire costs just P850 on lazada. and my small 15lbs co2 tank w/ content costs P2900

                  I think that nowadays you can find a lot of additional information about every product on the internet. If you are interested in different types of welder you can check reviews like https://toolsduty.com/best-welder-for-beginners/ and find all necessary details about the particular elder that you want to purchase.
