Dumb Welding Question???

806 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  justashooter
When a company states that the welder can weld "up to" 3/16" steel, does this mean that is the thickest metal that you could weld or does that mean that 3/16" is the maximum penetration of the weld? I have been tack welding (edge welding) several pieces of 1 1 /4" cold rolled steel together . I know that I am only scratching the surface with my little wire feed welder, but it seems to hold.

I just bought a 140 amp Hobart mig a couple of months ago.
It is rated at 1/4" stating that it is "able to weld up to 1/4" material in one pass, thicker materials may require more than one pass".
