I had to smother it out today and need to bring it out into the country to finish.
Question to the people who welded theirs. Can you mig it or can you tig it? If you can mig it, how did you set it up? Thanks.
I mig'd all mine. I have a couple small Lincoln's a 100 and 140.
I've used .020 and .030 wire on mine. Depends on what you're welding to the drum. Around the side boxes of the BUFORD's I've built, I spot welded the cover plates to the drum and then filled in the seams with Rutland RTV.
