how can I make money from my new flux core welder?

I bought it for around-the-house fixes and to work on my truck but I was wondering if there was something I can do with it to make some pocket change? any ideas?

    I'm made some good money making trellises and selling them at the local farmers market in my city. The average suburban back yard gardener isn't very mechanically inclined and the average welder isn't a hobby gardener. So there is no one making stuff like that to fill their needs. Plus they love buying from a 'local artisan" like you instead of the big box store.

      You take a design like this and you simplify it some and they eat it up at the farmers markets. You hit it with some black spray paint or leave it raw for a "natural metal" look. They don't need anything thicker than 1/8th thick and it only needs to support plants so it perfect way to build up your skill and confidence while making some extra cash for when you decide you need a bigger welder or just for spare cash.

      This. Sell a product people want. There are already established welding business that people would go to before an inexperienced welder.

      you gargantuan troglodyte. A bunch of people use flux core due to its speed and excellent penetration. Also anti spatter will solve 90% of those issues with spatter.

        Unfortunately FCAW got a bad rep from chicom trash 120v machines and their use on too-thin steel.

        MIG is easily affordable in civilization and permits running much thinner uncored wire that's far superior for auto body etc.

        For babby jobs I gas-converted a Weldpak 100 I snagged for $100 at a thrift store (it's old enough to have copper windings and had a nice arc). The traditional combo of babby MIG for sheet metal and a transformer stick machine for heavier stock works nicely.

    Repair “wrought iron” fences. Actual iron fences are exceedingly rare; nearly all of them are steel. Go to any old part of town in the South and they’re ubiquitous. Most general contractors will have zero welding experience or equipment, so the fences are often in need of repair simply from age and very few people being qualified to work on them. I live outside of New Orleans and it’s pretty common here.
