    I don't know what this stuff is called but its like little round tubing the size of a pencil. It's whole, and doesn't have a hole in the middle. I was wondering if it's possible to weld that stuff with a MM 135 welder. Since it's so small, couldn't I tack weld it together around the two ends?? Thanks, and sorry If I did not make sense

    What are you planning on using it for? I think it would weld up fine, just grind the ends to rounded points, about a quarter inch down, this makes it easier to get the best connection, and leave less to grind off later. If this proves not to work, maybe you could dye the ends and thread them together. Hope this helps.

    Okay I'll try grinding both ends down till there thin, then if that doesn't work I'll pick up a tap and dye set to use. I will be using it for a ordamental basketball hoop for a friends birthday. Thanks
