  • Baffled sump

    Hi everyone an new to the welding thing, got my self a small arc welder and have a few projects in mind.
    The first i have is a baffled sump using a stock steel oil pan. Would arc be ok for this?

    Heres a diagram of what i plan to do.

    to me it looks like a fairly simple project whaat do you people think?

    I doubt if you'll have any luck with that small stick welder. There are guys who can do sheet metal with stick, but I bet they use higher line welders with more control over the amperage...and perhaps DC instead of AC. My guess is MIG, or at the top end, TIG.

      Rule of thumb stick welding : Do not try to weld stuff thinner than the thickness of the welding rod. They do make 1/16th dia rods and they are quite fun to use. A 5lb can of 1/16 stainless we got for bout 100 bucks.
