You need to research, and understand the difference between all the different processes, and their limitations, before you do anything that matters.
Some of the terminology here worries me.

Dale is dead on here.The opinions expressed below relate to structural welding (carports, trailers, etc.). Build all the skinning racks and hog traps you want.First, learn to weld properly. I do not believe one can really learn to weld without personal instruction. I don’t care if you learn at a school or as an apprentice. Internet videos won’t cut it. Welding is a very nuanced skill that requires a lot of instruction and practice to get a feel for.Wire-feed machines allow new hobbyists to generate “pretty” beads with very little practice/experience. Pretty beads do not equate to quality welds.That little machine is for hobby use. Can it safely weld up a carport? Sure, but it is not the tool for that job and should not be attempted by a hobby welder. Multi-pass welds and lots of cooling time due to the short duty-cycle are just a couple of drawbacks.A carport is a stationary kite. It absolutely requires properly welded joints. Most folks wouldn’t believe the stresses placed on carport joints in a good windstorm.I don’t mean to be a buzzkill. I applaud you for taking on a useful new skill. Just do your due diligence because someone else’s life may depend on it one day.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
