Aluminum welding question!!

Post by rcnewbie » Tue Mar 01, 2005 5:11 pm

Does anyone have any idea if they have welders for tiny jobs? I wanna weld some pieces of aluminum together but have no idea how to. Or if someone has other ideas on how to get those pieces to stay together. For example: I wanna make a snowplow. I wanna ad the reinforcments behind the plow just like a real one. Hopefully I was clear enough with my question. Thanks in advance for any help...

i was going to say that but rockcrawler beat me to it, according to the guys at work that have used it it does work like they say it does, 2 yrs on a cast arm on a lawn mower and no problem as of yet.

My dad bought some at the sportsmans show and couldn't get it to work right. After reading this I went over to his place to give it a try.

Like it says at their site temp control is kind of important here, too much and the stuff just runs off like water. Also cleanliness seems quite important. I'll give it another go tomorrow.

I know that this is a very old topic. I have a question to ask on this subject. I know that I used this product in the past with my clod and txt-1. However it took a very long time for the rod to melt. And I was using a very small torch that I got from Harbor Freight. Any ideas what I could use,and it a better torch from? Like a auto parts store?

MAP gas puts out a hotter flame and is fairly cheap

Yep map gas is the way to go if you want a hotter flame. Plumers use it
