I used my HF Titanium 125 to tack The Bride’s frame tubes. It was my first time striking an arc with the thing and, for FCAW, it works surprisingly well. It’ll never make a real welder out of me (If you gotta grind down your welds, you’re a “grinder,” not a “welder”), but for simple plug welding and a couple of tacks, it was easy-peasy-cheddar-cheesy. I’ll eventually take it to my local welding guy to get finished correctly, but that can wait for now; I have the tank mounts and rear suspension to do, and those will require additional welding. In the meantime, it’s on to fabricating the engine mount.
