Man. I saw that winch at Sam's Club like over a month ago. Been wanting to buy it since. I keep teasing myself by driving past Sam's.

Nonetheless, looks good.

Hey man, why would I lie about what kind of filler rod I used. I welded steel to stainless steel it doesn't matter it you use stainless filler or a standard steel filler. And how can you even tell from my cell phone pics?

Actually is does matter what filler you use. I don't know where you learned that.

I know it matters what type of filler you use, but it can be either be a stainless or mild steel filler. I know that when you weld stainless and steel together you have to take into account your heat ranges and pulse. Im not new to welding. I used the same filler that that company uses to weld their stainless steel frames together. It worked great for what i need it to do. I've welded stainless together with mild steel filler before for a quick fix and ive had no problems. I've taken 2 years of metal fabrication in high school, and i used to work at my buddies dads' company as a welder/machienest before i started college.

Grant, I weld stainless to steel all the time... Most of the time it's TIG.... And I use stainless filler rod... Those ball bearing shift *****?... They're hardened steel with a galvanized nut... TIG welded with stainless filler... They're the same rods, only one resists rust, less carbon content.

yeah, i know that'll work. I've just always read/learned that when you do steel to stainless you use 309 (i think that is the number) SS filler rod. I'm sure it works for your application, just my background on this stuff it matters.
