  1. yes i was able to shove a screw driver in mine and finally get it open. the deck lid is pristene butt i found engine parts held in by a loose sheet of gavenized roof metal. bad deal for me since i havnt beem able to pry the hood open yet.

  2. i have a stupid question. is it still bad to look at the weldspark even if its on video? i always look away still. lol

  3. Matt mentions 21.5V was the sweet spot, what current setting was he using at this voltage please? On my magmate180p I have voltage and current so was chasing some good starting settings.
    Thanks guys, love your vids.
    Any Eastwood distributors in Australia?

  4. For stitch welding thin metal, I usually turn my welder up really hot, and give it a quick "zap" (probably 0.2 seconds). This produces a very flat, full penetration weld. I haven't tried it with a plug weld, but it would seem that the result would be very similar. Using the copper-backed plug weld pliers would eliminate the likelihood of blowing through.
    I say this because it's pretty clear that Matt isn't accustomed to clipping the ball from the end of the filler wire before each weld. I know I don't do that.

  5. i really wanna learn how to weld so i can weld moyorcycle frames and various parts for motorcycles but id much rather learn how to on my own, whats the best welder for beginners to learn best on, for affordability and to be able to weld things as big as motorcycles frames if such a welder exists thanks love the channel btw

  6. What you need is a little more voltage and a little surcle movement of the torch round the hole and that will make the weld flat and nice
