Oh come on. I'm not a total noob. I have a good solid hour worth of welding time with other projects so far.

I haven't welded anything as thin as 18 gauge. My worry is burnging thru it. I've got teh same welder that EastcoastCB has. His buddy Eddie is a professional welder and said it did just fine on CCCB's roof raise. So, I know the welder is capable. Figuring out if I'm capable will be the next part.
