Here is my new custom radiator I made in solidworks. 1/8" aluminum lasered and cnc bent endtanks. Machined inlets and outlets, machined filler neck. The bung I dont have yet as I spaced on that part. All the fittings will be welded from the inside for a nice clean sleek install. Core is from a high end radiator supplier in the U.S and not some cheap chinese core. Anyways here it is mocked up and ready for welding once i get the bung for the drain setup.

kmurphy judging by your pics you seem like the right person to ask about welders. I would like to get into welding and would like some input on what kind/style to get. I am leaning more towards a TIG as I hear they make some of the cleanest welds. However they are supposed to be harder to learn right? Wire feed MIG should be easier to learn but they spatter and you have less control?

Me and a friend want to go halves on one we have about $1200 to spend-what are some good brands to look at and some features we need or don't need.

Thanks for any input you can give on the matter.

I just sold my lincoln precision tig 185 for 1200 with a big bottle. I suggest learning tig welding. I think everything else is just a "waste" of time. Tig is all about practice and training your body to control 3 things, where your tungsten is at, your foot adjusting your amperage, and your other hand placing the filler. At first its kinda mess but after awhile everything flows together. Everyone seems to prefer miller for tig welders especially if you go the dyansty route which i will when i have 6k sitting in my pocket, but i loved my lincoln precision tig unit. I have 2 syncrowaves that i use at work, and i prefer the lincoln unit to them. The lincolns you can find for that 1,200-1,500 range.

Once you have a welder you'll find a million uses for it.

Mig with an argon/oxygen tank and you will be putting out clean, smooth welds, great to learn on (((oh, and no splatter either)))

If you're looking for a used welder try jalopy journal. Those dudes are always selling welders.

theres almost always splatter with mig. Mig is so easy to learn its not worth learning first atleast to me. I choose to learn tig welding first. Even though i rarely and i mean rarely pick up a mig, its easy to do because you apply the same things you learned with tig to mig.

With tig i can weld stainless, inconel, titanium, aluminum, mild steel all with the same torch and tungsten, all i need is different filler. Try that with a mig.

If you want something with versatility and produces clean nice welds than go with tig.

you might also want to look for a used miller diversion, its a nice little tig. Its a inverter based machine so it draws little power and is used on 110v plug. Its the nice of a small suitcase so its easy to tote around. Can be had for a little over 1k.
