Arc and MIG welding advice?

hi, i’m a novice welder in arc and mig i’m able to get nice beads of weld occasionally, i’m searching to purchase welder for vehicle sections and that i heard mig is what you want well appears realistically enough (less splatter than arc) is true? also gas less mig versus gas what is the main difference? is gas less cheaper over time?

may also someone explain inverter welders in my experience?

e.g. the hyperlink below

thanks much appreciated


I checked out your Link. I’ve been welding 30 + many

haven’t heard about an inverter welder.

The Vendor on Ebay didn’t give any specs. on his machine,

you can contact him.

I suspect it could operate on battery power, but with no model #?

A mig welder is great for automotive use.

Better warmth control. Mine includes a place welding attachment

for body sections.

Where Sometimes, you will find there’s suitcase 120 VAC mig unit.

Employed for outdoors projects, gas-less, with flux cored wire.

No gas and flux cored-wire, removes the issues

connected using the wind coming the shielding gas away,

leading to a poor weld.

Flux cored wire is much more costly than hard wire.

Never did an expense analyse between gas, hard wire and flux-cored.

You are able to email with increased questions if you wish to.

I favor a mig machine with gas & hard wire for small projects.

For structural, like structures, gas and flux-cored wire

gives better transmission and may pass an engineers

Area Weld Test.

Hope this can help.
