March 6,2018 I bought myself a Hitronic 200G

The machine did not include a flow meter so I got one from Panda.

Image
Bought wires from Jayl and some consumables and was told that this INE wire are very good performers.

Ordered the Argon CO2 (80/20) mix gas

Second day of welding and I decided to make the base for a Mig Cart. Starting with the base I tacked the first joint inside and the next one outside and so on... then checked the angles then full welded them.
And the results are much better already...
Image
I was very happy the welds not only looks nice they also held well
Image
And then pinatong ko sa woodworking table ko... Pilipit!!! :wtf: :wtf: :wtf:
I ended grinding two opposinng corners that looks like the culprit then tacked them again and added some support.
Image
I find these mistakes invaluable, next time I look forward into avoiding them....

Very heavy that it doesn't move a bit even when you push hard....

and took 3 men just to bring it upright from the floor.
It needs some tuning to make all the plates level, will wait when I get to borrow a decent level and a long straight rule...
