Ok so I'm thinking about building a set of square tube rock sliders like some others have already built / posted on here. The question is can it be welded together with an oxyacetelyn welder? It's the only welder I have although I may be able to borrow a buddies 110v mig.

Is it possible? Yes, but.........
Unless you have quite a bit of experience oxy/acetylene welding,(Im assuming you dont since youre asking this question) its going to be a frustrating endeavor. Borrow the MIG, practice a bit and build the sliders with it.

A crappy mig can be just as frustrating as any other form...

I think that's the problem right there. My uncle passed away and left me a garage full of CRAP from Harbor Freight! After one or two uses they become garage sale items.
Like i said...crappy ones...

Yah i figured that was gunna be the answer but i'm still lookin forward to gettin some scrap and practicing welding. I also thought that the square tube sliders would be a good first project. Simple angles and cuts and looks pretty straightforward.
