Looks like you need more heat in that weld. But other than that, nice trailer! Gonna repaint it?

Oh, for true. Recently, I helped my buddy rearrange his place. I used MULE to tow a 6x10' landscape trailer with a few hundred pounds on it, and about 150 on the tongue. I was REAL nervous, but MULE didn't even break a sweat!

Depends. If you're running FCAW, you should be okay. You can pre-heat, multi-pass, and bevel. One or a combination of those and you should be okay assuming you've a good idea what you're doing. Now- If you're using GMAW, forget about it!

Lookin' good though!

Flux core (FCAW) or MIG aka gas (GMAW)

I thought gas would be better. Well I'll try it out and see how it is.

Generally speaking, you get deeper penetration (and hence thicker material capability) on a convertible machine in flux-core mode. Yes, you'll have to work harder to clean it up and make it look presentable, but it will give you the most bang per available output amp.

More progress. I made the holes for the original boat trailer jack mount from 1/2" to 5/8" and the new jack clipped right on. might have to move it. Cut the winch off so it can be moved forward. I might just get a 3"x3" tube for the front section where the tounge is welded just a longer piece. like 8ft becust this is about 5 1/2 ft.

When I cut the bunks off I cut a hair to deep into the actual frame, no big deal, maybe 1/32". I filled them in and it looks like the ol' 90amp did good job of pennitration, I might be able to weld the bunks back on with it.
