Just before midnight last night I decided to bring the welder into my living-room and have a go. As you do. I’m certainly no blacksmith but to be honest, I’m quite pleased with the result:
The weld didn’t seem to want to stick tot he zinc bolt though so just before posting this I did a quick Google search. Apparently the fumes from welding zinc are highly toxic. Oops! I won’t be doing it in my living room again then!
