Never to be one to shy away from picking up a new tool, I was investigating picking up a Harbor Freight or similar spot welder. As with most everyone here who’ve done a restoration, I’ve got some sheet metal work to do on the Jag. Not a lot of it but enough to justify something to make life easier.
I came across a welding forum where someone has the same welder that I have (Esab Rebel 215ic) and was asking about the spot settings. Unbeknownst to me, the Esab as well as most other big name TIG welders will run in spot mode.
Eastwood actually makes special spot welder tips and vise grip pliers as demonstrated here on their YouTube channel.
These shields are pretty common. Tweco has 21-62-fas and Lincoln has something similar. I can always resort back to plug welds but if I can get by with these, then I’ll go that route.
