    • Use the grinder by doing a back and forth motion to sand down the post. This clears rust buildup and paint that is left on both metal bars.

    • Caution: Use safety glasses while using the grinder to prevent residue from getting in your eyes.

    • Use the grinder to sand down part of the metal fence so the ground clamp on the welding machine has ground to be on for the machine to work.

    • What the ground clamp does is that it provides you with the right voltage that you will need for the metals to actually be welded together. If it isn't a similar metal, the voltage/power of the machine can either be too little or too much.

    • Put the welding ground clamp on the same piece of metal that has also gotten paint removed with the grinder.

    • Warning: use welding gloves and a welding helmet since the brightness can affect your vision and the heat can burn you.

    • Hold both posts together, and use the weld gun by pressing on the trigger it has while moving the tip of the welding gun from one side to the other. Make slow passes of about 4 seconds between both metal posts since the posts are usually thin.

    • The welding pattern I used was just move the weld gun's point from one side to the other in a straight line since it is a really small area you are working on.

    • Use the wire brush to brush off the area welded and to brush off any paint that can be peeling around the area you welded. If you still need to weld repeat step 3 and after that repeat this step once more.

    • Use a spray paint can the color of your metal fence to paint the areas welded and the areas that were sanded down.

    • To spray paint shake the can a few times, then start off by spraying from a distance and then getting closer to cover the area more.

    • The fence should now be welded and painted. If more than one of the posts needs welding, repeat all steps.
