As I understand it, you are correct. Here's what I've read on it,Mig came out in the 40s, mig for steel was in the 50s, not saying they used em the factories but the technology was there
I'm pretty sure u r spot on!As I understand it, you are correct. Here's what I've read on it,
The first patent related to MIG welding was in the late 1920's. More techniques and patents for MIG weld occured in the 40's, 50's, and 60's. MIG welding as we know it (practical use in automotive areas) didn't occur until about the late 70's. Modern cars (including vintage Mustangs) have been assembled with spot welders due to cost, ease of training the operator, and speed. A MIG welder would require a higher level of skill, more time, and cost to operate versus a spot welder.
UWO...unidentified welded object. What the heck kind of weld is that? Drunk welder who ran out of gas? No helmet so he closed his eyes?This weld is pretty sloppy, is it factory, or the work of one of the previous owners?
