Depending on what you have available I would use TIG or 110v MIG. Personally I like MIG; I would use a thin wire, non-flux core with your standard argon shield. It would be easy with flux-core too, maybe just harder to do it cleanly.

When I tried friction welding it never turned out as clean as I wanted it to be; not sure why.

You need heavy fixturing and a lot of torque, plus the ability to apply enough force.

I do a lot of welding. if it were me and I was trying to do it as easy as possible, I would mig it. gas shielded non flux core as previously mentioned. If I wanted it to be super bitchin', I would tig it and if that were the case, I would probably have made out of tube to add to the super bitchin' factor. It sounds like you will be Oxy Acy welding it, which will prove to be the most difficult process. Get yourself a 00 size tip if you are wanting to have good success. Flux is your friend with this process and there are a number of filler materials available that will suit your need. Yes, even the coat hanger mentioned earlier, just make sure you sand the coating off.

Friction welding is awesome. If it's good enough for class 8 axles then it's good enough for RC.*

I've actually seen this before, but it is definitely not even close to an option for me. I do find it to be an extremely cool method, though.

You, sir, have just been signature quoted. Found that one pretty funny.

Thought you all might appreciate the video.

If you had the facilities, you could do friction welding. I am tempted to try it with my HF mini mill, just to see if I can get it to work.

I would choose to TIG weld that cage together, TIG excels at thin materials. A MIG is a molten squirt gun so you likely wont get as nice looking weld with it, hell you could even burn some Stick into it but I bet the "micro welding" place OP mentioned would do it with a TIG.

Consider spending some time building a jig to hold everything together while you weld it, the firmer the better.
