5/8 inch steel plate into 18 x 36 welding table?
by Al Coffman
I'm just learning to weld. Have not even used the MIG gas yet, however, have done a few small projects, gates, latches and have done ok. A lot of the welds are not pretty, but seem to be holding ok.
Question: I bought a 5/8 inch steel plate about 18 x 36 and want to make a welding table out of it. the angle I'm using for the legs is 1/8 x2 by 36. Not sure if I'm getting the welds over all hot enough to flow the thicker metal. Current welds have some "small holes" and the wire sticks sometimes instead of striking an arc. Please let me know how best to do this.
