mig is the best way to go on sheet metal.
if you're a season veteran with an arc welder you can get it done on sheet metal, but if you're not, you gonna have some warped ass swiss cheese ass metal yo.
dont get all excited though, you gotta watch what you're doing with mig too though....

No offense homie but even with a mig you should wled small slug welds in about 1 to 2 in lenths to prevent warping as wellOriginally posted by clownen@Dec 20 2008, 02:37 PM~12483556

Pick up yourself a Hobart Mig welder. Preferably a 220, that way you can use it for thick steel as well, but a 110 MIG would do. DON'T try to weld it with Flux. Don't be cheap and get the tank with gas. It welds much cleaner, stronger, and doesn't melt through the metal. I weld 20gauge sheet metal all day with my Hobart Handler 180 MIG welder (220) and I don't melt through at all. The welder ranges from $500-$900. I got it for $900 but my buddy found one for $500....lol Make sure you DON'T buy a Lincoln MIG welder. They're horrible. The wire hesitates to come out of the gun. Two of my friends have the same Lincoln welder and it does the same thing, and they had one at a shop I worked at and it also did the same thing. I'll either go Hobart, or Miller.
