I got a roll of 309 stainless some time back. I had a few things to weld with it. I have never mig welded with 309 wire before. It really welds smooth, not much splatter at all. I was using c-25.

I had a couple of lead apron hangers, thats a pain to weld together. And an x-ray table lead hanger arm made of stainless. I did grind it smooth for appearances rather than leave an unsightly bead. I was probably a bit short with one bead line, but i wanted to stay out of the ratchet teeth. I did not want splatter or to deform the teeth on the under side.

Not as good as TIG1 but it will do.

Looks good.

You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.
