    I have a receiver that was de-milled into three pieces, and I'm not sure how to weld it back together. I'm afraid of burning new holes into the receiver or melting it away into nothing. Any advice on how to start? I assume I'll have to dial my MIG voltage down so I can weld colder, other than that I need help.

    That figures, I appreciate it. I can barely mig weld as it is, so tig welding is out of the question for me. I'll have to work up to it or figure out a way around it, at least I have all the parts I need...

    I have a pps43 in the same state.
    Looking for a welder who can weld and be appreciative of a $100 tip for the help

    I can ask around, I know a guy who's welded for over 40 years so he may agree to help. I'll let ya know if he agrees to helping me out, I'll mention your case also
