So we received a request via our Instagram page the other day, asking about how to pick up some side work as a welder. Honestly, once people find out that you are a decent welder/fabricator and you have a decent amount of the basic tools, you will most likely be turning work down because you are so busy with side projects.
We're busting out another viewer submitted request from our audience members. A few viewers have requested us to do some thin gauge stainless steel to a thicker piece of material. This process is a much easier than most people think.
Depending on the type of work you do, there may come a time when you have to weld dissimilar metals together. In this episode we discuss welding 304 Stainless Steel to A36 Mild Steel using SMAW.
Many people are intimidated when it comes to thin gauge stainless, especially when you get out of position. Stainless welding will take some practice, especially on thin material. The biggest problems you will run into are burning through and sugaring.
