Just get yourself some blackpipe, and weld away. As long as the metal is thick enough than you dont have to worry about burning through (blackpipe is thick) Also, DO NOT try and weld with a butane torch, dont even try and oxyace the weld unless you are experenced in such welding applications such as this, it will put you joint at risk and could possibly blow with a high pressure app such as this. Only weld with a mig or tig or arc if you want your weld to be dependable. WARNING, the weld may hold together for a lenth of time but have very little penetration and break over time, make sure that the welds are checked out by someone who has been welding for some time to make sure they have good penetration.

Oh, Get yourself a little mig and you will not be disapointed :D

YES!!
MILLER, LINCON, HUSKEY, ESAB.
personally i have a small huskey that was only 200$ and i run the crp out of it and it always produces a good looking strong weld. But if you really want a good one than go for a miller, they are pricy but very easy to work with :D
