How do you fuck up that badly?
Nah, quoted for future use because not only is it lame and old, but it's a direct link to Schizo posting up homoerotic menswear fanfiction.

Well there's stainless for you.

Good news is there's a Tig torch right there to fix it.

Try not to breathe while welding that.

I am out of argon. cant weld it till I get a new bottle tomorrow. its when welding galvanized you don't want to breath it in. nothing given off when welding stainless.

Zinc will give you fever. I've welded a lot of it. Stainless has chrome in it - very bad.

Breathing none of it is good. But zinc is a mineral in your body. Chrome is a heavy metal poison.

Didn't mean to make the thread more of a downer than it already is. It's really not that much to weld, and the good thing is you have the equipment, which most don't.
