MIG mastery: MIG welding is a great process for a range of farm repairs and fabrication. But MIG welding is far more than simply pointing the torch and pulling the trigger. There are distinct differences in which metal is transferred from the torch to the work. Understanding these metal transfer modes can only improve your MIG welding. Photo: Ben White.

Metal inert gas or MIG welding is a popular process in the farm workshop due to its ease of use, fast deposition rates and ability to weld both thick and thin sections.
