Hi all from Spain.
I would like to try build some human-powered machine and what better way than with your plans and knowledge.
I have much to learn, beginning with welding. What type of welding machine you recommend me? (electrodes, wire, inverter)...
Regards. :scooter:

Well I started with an arc welding machine but found it difficult so switched to a gas MIG, which is much easier, so I would recommend that if you can afford one.

Hi and welcome to the forum from the UK

I have to agree with H

I would recommend a gas mig , using .6 wire , I am using a very old snap-on ( corbora ) that is giving me good results and it was free ( needed a service )

a baby throwaway argon mix bottle hold enough for one trike build but if you can get a "rent free" bigger bottle it is cheaper in the long run

There are many threads on here about machines and welding , most questions have been answered before
