    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Bit of a late reply, but I'm new and thought I'd just throw out an answer in case anyone doesn't know.<br><br>MIG ( Metal Inert Gas): a solid wire, fed through a contact tip in a gun. Shielding gas, usually an argon mix, comes out of the nozzle of the gun and shields the molten metal puddle from the air. Easy to learn process.<br><br>FCAW ( Flux Core Arc Welding): Like MIG, but the wire is hollow and contains a flux that provides the shield from the atmosphere so gas isn't needed. Easy and cheap, but not as tidy as MIG.<br><br>TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas): A tungsten electrode is held in a collet, within the handle. Shielding gas flows out of a nozzle, kinda like MIG, but the nozzle is ceramic or Pyrex and is called "the cup". Filler metal is fed, by your other hand into the molten puddle as the arc, from the tip of the tungsten, melts the base metal. Beautiful process. You could do it in a tuxedo and not get dirty or burnt. <br><br>Hope that helps someone...... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_study.png" alt="study" longdesc="34"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"></span>

    Thanks for the info, Bert. I've always thought it'd be cool to get into welding for hobby purposes, but I never really have (unless you count my $40 Bernzomatic oxy/mapp torch, I'm pretty mean with that bad boy, lol <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> ). Would be a really handy skill, no doubt.

    Very cool. How about continue the paracord up around the triangular portion too?
