I have to interject here regarding Tig...The statement of Tig welds being brittle is completely false. They would indeed be brittle if you use coat hangers as filler! Coat hanger wire is the crappiest steel there is! The chemical composition is all over the place. I would stay away from anyone who would use coat hangers for welding work on your project! For reference, have a look at any of the Ron Covell videos on metalworking...
