  • welding 1215 steel


    I need to know if there are any problems I would encounter while MIG welding a 1215 steel locking collar to a section of sch 40 steel pipe. It is going to be used as removable handles for a tread mill, not the highest load scenario, but I don't want them ever to break.

    This is the locking collar,

    I don't see a problem doing it esp with a 220v mig which you have. The reason that they use 12L14 is its easy to machine and prob off a CNC lathe or mill. If you need something heavier or not 12L14 give me a yell...Bob
