If you find welding scary, you are not alone. A lot of people own welding machines but are too scared to use it. That is not surprising. Who would not be worried about a machine that can gather enough energy to injure you, the same energy that fuses metals together?
Metal inert gas or MIG welding works with the use of a welding wire. The spool of welding wire is fed from the welding machine to fuse metals together. MIG is used to fuse mild steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. MIG is good for welding thick and heavy metals.
