I'm wondeirng if anyone can tell me what settings to use on my arc welder for 7018 rods. I've been trying different things but nothing comes out looking very good. I'm thinking that is my best choice for welding my frame back together after I take about 2 feet out of it. I've been told I have a knack for welding, but i'm completley in the dark about what settings to use. And about the frame, I read the post about frame modifications but all the tapper and stagger just confused the hell out of me. So, what I got out of it is that I should grind down the edges so they fit together like a V and then weld them starting from the middle and working outwards? And then should I box the whole frame after that? thanks for any help.
