    Did you see I welded my hooks on with 7018? I'm not afraid of Mig / wire feed, but I've probably run more spools of wire than most here have seen. A Mig welder in the wrong hands does give me concern, that is why I try to help as much as I can.

    Good idea...one can get poor penetration using stick as well as any other type of welding. Personally, I'm partial to TIG welding, but you'd need a big torch for enough heat to weld those hooks.

    Here is one of mine:
    Grind the bevel off weldable hooks?-hook-welds-jpg

    Miller 210, Lincoln L56 .035" wire, 75/25 gas.

    Don't forget to tip the hook slightly away from the first side you tack-the heat will pull it straight, then weld the opposite side.

    Thanks Roy, just my little chicom welder you see there at 125 amps some 1/8 inch US Forge 7018 .
    This is on my Kioti, when I looked at the bead, the thought that went through my head was that my bead on the hook looked better than the MIG weld on the the little plate that the Korean guy did.

    Good advice and a good lookin' bead, Kenny!!

    I'll admit, I was a pretty decent TIG welder, but I couldn't do crap with MIG or stick!!
    Best thing about being certified on TIG (while I was in the Navy) was it helped me identify good welds...and bad welds.

    Now that I have a pacemaker, welding machines and I aren't a good mix...
