    WELDER TYPEt a

    Hey guys . I am interested in possibly building a sten Uzi and and Ak.

    They all seem to require welding skills . . I was looking to purchase a welder but i didnt know which type to buy . Mig Tig etc . I bought a 90 AMP FLUX CORE arc welder. It was spur of the moment from Harbour Freight. Did I make a good purchase considering i am a novice and NEVER welded before?

    I have used the same welder. I will do the job. Watch a few videos on youtube and try it out on scrap. The welds are not beautiful. But you can clean them up with a grinder.

    Personally I'd get a better welder. I've used harbor freight welders and it's really difficult to get a decent weld. It's even more difficult with a flux core welder vs. a gas setup. I bought the AHP AlphaTig 200. It will lay niiice beads and is cheap as far as tig welders go.
