welding anyone?

I'm bored, and I need new gates on my property, the old ones look terrible. So I'm thinking rather than buying the two gates plus RV gate that I need, maybel I'll weld some of my own. I've never welded, anybody have any advice?

Wire feed MIG welder is the way to go.  Borrow or rent a small portable one.  Ideally find someone who knows what they are doing and have them give you a quick tutorial as it will save you a lot of time and problems, 15 minutes with someone who knows what they are doing will put you way ahead.  Or better yet just fabricate all the parts for your gate and take it to a high school or community college that has a welding program and see if they'll do it for you for free as a class project.

Get a mig welder. Easy learning curve. Use the argon gas style.
