I thought a MIG is just an arc with a gas tank... correct me if i'm wrong, but the mig has a piece of wire, and it shoots gas around it when welding... i dunno what gas CO2? and the arc welder is the same thing except the piece of wire has this coating around it so when welding it creates the gas coat by itself... so in essence the same thing... What do the exhaust shops use to weld it up, gas? My old neighbour used to weld everything up with an arc... i mean if you're really carefull, couldn't you weld up an exhaust pipe.... how thick does the metal have to be... would i have trouble welding up those square steel tubes when i'm making the spit roasting machine? I figured it would be really usefull and they're relativley cheap these days... is welding car bodies a posibility?

kind of but then you can have a gasless mig as well..

MIG is known as GAS METAL ARC welding. M.I.G (metal inert gas)

stick is MANUAL METAL ARC welding.

the gas for the mig changes depending on what you are welding.

M/S uses Argon comonly called argo sheild
S/S uses argon with a small amounts of other gases can't recall what they all are.

gasless migs use a fluxed wire as the flux is heated it give off a gas

you can weld exhaust pipe and light sheet steel (like that used in cars) with mig and a stick, it just comes down to practice and developing the skill.
