Can I weld automotive parts like body, muffler and frame?

Asked by: Ad8honda
It can do smaller material but I would not use to weld an automotive frame. That would require a machine that can use solid wire and gas with a little more power like the Handler 190.

I would like to weld a jack onto the tongue of a 10 ft disc. Would I be able to weld the jack onto the tongue which is about 1/2" to 3/4" thick steel.

The Toolmate 100 would be too small for this application.
