I suck at welding but I've wanted a mig for years. I have a stick welder for heavy stuff but nothing for small stuff. Now I need some scrap to practice on. Maybe I'll practice while building a cart for it?

I was kind of afraid to open this at first.

I did it with my hands over my eyes and peeked through my fingers.

What gas do you use for aluminum?

I have a similar thing from Lincoln. They are fine for the little jobs and faster than TIG ...... I used mine to repair the deck on my new to me brush hog during the last couple of days. The down side it the duty cycle is not all that breath taking. and one spends a lot of time waiting fo the thing to cool down for the next foot worth of bead.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

I got one several years ago but it quickly got absorbed up at my son's place. He loves it and Dear Old Dad just might buy himself one...again.

I am not a professional welder, but I had to use a spool gun to weld aluminum, pushing aluminum wire through a long whip was problematic. I also use 100% argon when welding aluminum.

Even the pro models with the long whips and a puller motor can be a challenge with aluminum.

Nothing wrong with a Hobart. I've got a 120, just got done a few days ago welding in new rockers and cab corners in an old Chevy truck. Great little welder
