        Pangea is correct without more info on the alloy and joint type any answer given may be incorrect. Not being a smart A** just stating fact.

                According to HH135 manual it can weld 1/8 inch steel in one pass.
                Are you good enough weldor to bet your life on the weld?

                    yeah, I can weld it, but i wanted to tig weld it so I wanted to see if that machine was up to the task.

                    thank you.

                      Let's get one thing straight, right up front. The size of the machine don't mean jackshyt if you don't mind doing a multipass weld. The fit up on any tubing fit for a roll cage would have to be something like I've never seen before to even think about going single pass anyway. I'd go a hot pass then a filler/cap even if it was a -0- gap fit, which you aint gonna have.

                      Take your time, lay them stringers, watch for blow outs when you seal a tube.

                      Good luck.
