  • Metal sheet (Beginner question)


    After coming to terms with 1/8", 1/4" and 1/2" steel, I went in the other direction and tried to join some 26ga sheet metal (1018). Not much luck with that. The only thing that worked out consistently was spot welding by sandwiching two pieces, setting max amps to 45 and flooring the pedal for 1 second.

    With butt and filet joints I could not get the pieces to tack - it goes from cold to burn through in a split second. My setup was a 1/16" electrode and 10A max. Any suggestions on what I could try?
