umm.. can I just bring you my car?
No seriously, what are some good tools to start out with? I have a 110 mig welder, and a bunch of cutting tools.
What is the best tool to cutoff old sheetmetal? I have a sawzall(to messy), dremel(to small), angle grinder(?), and a air cutoff tool(compressor has crappy duty cycle).
Also I need a good spot weld driller outer. I bought some from northern and they are poop.
Hi Face, It seems like you have the right tools already to get the sheet metal cut off.
A cutoff wheel is the preferred tool to cut off old sheet metal. Your problem seems to be stemming from your air compressor. If you can afford a new compressor it will pay for itself many times over by not giving you a headache. A plasma cutter will work but they can be rather spendy, and most good models require a decent air compressor anyways. (Point- Get a good air compressor.)
A good tool to drill out old spot welds is a Pneumatic drill, with a special bit for drilling spot welds out. You can find the bit at almost any automotive supply store, they can be expensive though. The drill running from $30 to $300, and the bit running from $10 to $35. But the bit and drill will work faster and (not to mention safer) better than using a standard electric drill and a standard bit. The best bit to go for is one that is made of Carbide, they are tougher and a bit sharper.
As for welders, a 110 MIG machine will cover pretty much all of your needs. Just remember to use the safty equipment you have, and to set it up right, and you will be happy with it.
If you need any more help feel free to ask.
