  • spot welding

    hey all

    im building a subframe box for all my wiring and battery atm and i got 2 questions:

    1 does anyone know if u can spot weld 0.4mm galv sheet without removing the galv coat?

    2 if yes, does anyone have access to a spot welder? if no, does anyone have access to a spot welder so i can find out?

    cheers

    1 - yes it is possible but the interaction of the zinc in the coating generally results in lower weld quality and gums up the tips on the welder (not a huge issue of you only have a small job)

    2 - nope, sorry

          yeah made the first one with rivets, just a bit limited for space where the battery box will sit in the tray, just exploring options

          i remember using one in year 8 and thinking " wow everyone should have one of these"

          cheers EPB for the info and that link

            Carbon fibre is a bit finicky to master, especially on complex shapes. Let us know how you go with the box as I'm about to do something similar on my Cafe project.
