I have a stick burner project in process, and I need to finish or fix the previous owners flaws. I have good to very good mechanical skills, but basically no welding experiance. My father in law just gave me an old Lincoln electric AC-225 stick welder. 2 questions. Will this be good enough to weld on up to 1/4 steel, and is it easy enough to use that a beginner can learn on a few scraps then have a prayer of making some decent welds?
