    i was only taught oxy and stick welding in votech school.
    ive seen a number of people able to lay down some super nice and super strong stick welds . like its art. and thats on various thicknesses of metal too.


    nothing wrong with stick weld .

    but i farm all my stuff out to have tig welded . since i totally suck at tig welding and no longer own a stick welder. and too broke ass and cheap to buy a mig.

    I learned to weld with a stick welder and find the MIG is so much easier. I picked up a cheap 220 MIG I just use with flux core wire for brackets, sissy bars etc, made an adapter to plug it into the dryer outlet and bought a 50 foot cord. The adapter, 50' of welding cable, helmet and gloves cost way more than the welder!
    I had a 110 MIG for a short time and found it was too much trouble - one minute of welding, 10 minutes waiting for it to cool.

    I use a stick because it was all me Dad and i could afford when we got it.
    If you don't weld very often it could be worth hiring one.
    If you are planning on welding a bit do a course where they teach it and use their welding gear for your project..
    Whatever you do practice, practice practice. Scrap metal is your best friend.
    Good Luck , Show us how you go (Just my $0.02 worth)

    all my experiance is with structural ARC welding, if it is good enough to stand a parking garage chances are it will hold its own... as far as motorcycles are concearned anything life threatening should be trusted to a tig. imo
