I will admit, i expected it to be like hot glueing steel together. so i made sure the wire spool moved, i turned on the gas, i set it to low, and set the spool speed to 2... nothing. i cant even get it to spark, let alone weld. i wire wheeled the absolute tar out of the metal even though i already got it shinyish, and still got nothing. i estimate it to be 18 gauge. now i will admit, im an electrician, not a welder. but im ready to learn and will take ANY advise i can get. pictured above, my lack of battery tray, im fixing the "tray" part with angle iron and a junkyard sourced license plate.
