I would like to assemble some wire armatures using 1/8" and 3/16" steel rods for a hobby project. I am hoping for durable joints, however the models are for decorative use and therefore don't have any stringent quality requirements. I don't have access to anything more than a standard 120v 15A power source. At this point I have the following: Material: - 1/8" and 3/16" cold rolled steel rods Tools: - 250w Soldering Gun - Very basic Benzomatic MAP brazing torch - I've got my eye on a nice used ARCweld AC-100 stick welder. I am expecting to create 300 - 400 welded joints. Are any of the above tools suitable for this type of work? I need the joints to be relatively clean, which I appreciate has much to do with experience/practice, but I don't want to fight an uphill battle by using the wrong tools. As this is a hobby/whim type project I'd like to avoid purchasing an expensive TIG or MIG unit with bottled gases. I would appreciate any feedback you all have to offer. Thanks!
