hey has anyone heard that a arc welder weakens the frame at all thats what i was told or can it work just as well as a 220 mig ? has anyone used one on any car that does some serious hopping and not bent the frame ?
If you're talking about a "Stick" welder, then NO, it will not weaken the frame. "Stick" beads can be found on the largest of construction equipment, they are meant for very HEAVY and durable bonds. I personally don't care for "Stick" beads because they are messy and can be ugly as shit if you don't know how to hold the arc while laying the bead. You can't go wrong with a mig welder, they're clean, somewhat easy to use and will look good with minimal practice.......Still, if you've never welded, consult help.

THE ONLY WAY ANY beads/welds will be weakend is when the weld is still hot and immediately cooled by either dousing/soaking it with water. The extreme decrease in temperature makes the metal unstable and brittle.......

Hope this helps!!!!
