Doin the gas welding for now. Couple questions: My beads, well...for only a few hours practice aren't too bad. I'm having a problem welding 2 pieces into an 'L' shape. I keep getting a small bead on each piece (or burning a hole through one /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif), but nothing substantial in the joint. Some tips would be great. I was doing something a little thicker than sheet metal with the smallest tip (0?). The amount of oxygen and acetane was correct. Second thing is, I can use all the gas and electric I want, but I have to provide the metal. Seems stupid to buy metal I'm goin ruin, any ideas where I could pick up some scrap for little or nothing??
