  • butt welding auto body metal

    hoping someone will throw a few pointers my way as to procedures for gas welding 1/16 or less body metal . used to be fair at gas welding but not as thin as this . torch tip size oxy/ acet pressure ect , going to be basicly tack & hammer /rod diameter

    Processes today have migrated to MIG welds as it introduces less heat and warping into metals.... And one does not run a bead with MIG, one does a tack weld about every 1-2 inched until butt weld is a solid joint....

      I'll give you three bits of advice. First one has to do with safety. Torch balance your gas pressure to the tip your using. Second is use small tip sizes (0/00) or a jewelers kit. Third is while nothing has change about doing what your doing, gas fusion welding, it never hurts to practice.

          Not sure what it is, but if I had to guess, an air breather off a big old Mack Truck?

            One place where the torch (Meco) is still popular is at Tinman Technologies, and the articles on this site still have a lot of useful information to help out the OA body worker. There are also some helpful videos on Youtube.
