Your right about the 2 different kinds of projects, which was my point. A farmer or hobbyist is not a code welder and does not use or need the same equipment or knowledge or skill to do what they want. Being a certified code welder or pipe line welder does not make anyone an expert in welding the kinds of things that most people on this board want to weld. It's like having a brain surgeon give a patient a foot massage. This is exactly the kind of knowledge that I have tho, doing this for so many years. Thats why I recomend easy and simple over absolute adhearance to the rules. It's why I recomend inexperienced welders with just an ac buz box use 6013 rods rather than 6011, they are easier to use so a lesser welder can get the job done where they may not be able to with a more difficult rod, even if it is more proper and popular. As far as material lists go, I never needed one except on large jobs. I've always been able to keep it in my head. Of course a trailer doesn't use much material so it's not a big deal.

The majority of hobbyist welders would greatly benefit from taking a course or learning more about welding in general. Like was mentioned before, a lot of people go to the home center, buy a welder and decide their first project is a trailer like you build. That's pretty scary! I always recommend going a step above a buzz box if you can afford it. It makes learning to weld so much easier and less frustrating.

Me too, actually I always try to get them to buy a small wirefeed like this guy has. They are so much easier to use and will do 90% of what farmers and hobbyists do. I do recomend the 220v tho, so they will handle up to 1/4" materiel in a pinch.
