Butt Welding Sheet Metal With A Mig Welder
If you are doing rust repair patches on your restoration project, I put together a few tips for you on how to avoid blowing holes through your seams: Use short bursts, pull the gun away from the work a bit to make a cooler weld, don't point the gun directly at the weld, hold it at an angle, weld on the last weld, that's the thickest piece of metal, use a copper backing plate to prevent fall out.

Make a Spot Welder for Cheap!!
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to make an 800 amp Spot Welder from common materials and for dirt cheap! Spot welders are used to fuse thin sheets of metal together and can cost hundreds of dollars to buy. In this video, we'll do it for practically nothing!

High current can be directed to one focused location to fuse sheets of metal together on contact. Using some scavenged parts from the microwave in a previous project, as well as some wood panels and a few other accessories, we can make a fully functional Spot Welder that works well, and has some built in safety precautions! The electrical power is high enough to turn a nail into boiling liquid iron.
