Default Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

I think this is a bad idea right from the start. It is completely outside of the function of a MIG welder and I don't see any easy way to make it work. Even if you could get it to work, I would thuink you would have a real good chance of doing permanent damage to you MIG welder. If you want to do something like this, get a stick welder (either a used transformer unit ot one of the new inverter units from China). I have one and it is a very well made unit. Then get a carbon arc torch; them suckers throw a lot of heat.
