DIY Speaker Stands

Recommended Posts

I always wanted to learn to weld so I bought a multiprocess welder and have been having fun.
I thought I'd start with a pair of surround speaker stands.
The cable will be run inside the tube and powder coated.

Great work.  👍 I wish I could do that so I can custom make speaker stand for my speakers. They are on too high or too low height stands at present.

I bought a CIG Weldskil 185. It's a 10AMP plug. You need to buy the TIG torch seperate.  Most other machines are 15AMP.
But in hindsight I should have bought just a TIG/ARC machine or dedicated TIG. This would require a 15AMP outlet to be installed.

I use the same machine. Took a while to get the MIG and TIG settings dialled in just right  but now it just sings

Your welding stick and MIG.
I've not tried stick yet and MIG only a little. I've been concentrating on TIG for now

25amps for 1mm?
From what I understand 25A per mm of stainless 30A per mm of mild steel?
