they are the same. wrist away. mine was so much fun. i filled the whole arm with 1/2" & the ==C part with beads too just for fun. oh yeah, im glad to answer any questions. do both sides at the same time, tacking opposite sides so as not to warp it. if you knew that already, sorry. oh hey, before you drill the hole think about it carefully. if you dont figure out what the deal is, ask me before you drill...

here you go...

1/8" 6011 & all my welds were flat thank you very much... i got good penetration & even mix of the metals. i was up around 135 150 amps. after i cut the arm, i could tell by the cross section it was solid where i welded the sides. oh yeah, it flexes like you see in the pics, but from the pics i have seen, it wont go that far but it really adds to the flex. ive seen guys fully articulated & the wristed arm isnt but 1"-2" off center at the wrist.

i didnt get excessive splatter at all. it went better as i increased the amps. i started off at 105 & went up until the arc was easily getting into the arm as well as the 1/2" plate. i dont think the welds will fail. i will let you know after the 60 goes in.
