Hi everyone i am new to the forum and am in the process of building a gold rush recumbent bike , made of aluminum .
I am a mechanic by trade and owne my own business 43 yrs. now and i have always used snapon tools , I had the chance to trade my snapon mig welder in that gave me good service for 15 yrs. for a new snapon welder that had mig ,tig and a spool gun . when i opened the boxes i found that the tig would weld brass , steel, stainless steel , crome-moly ,and all the other metals but not aluminum . the heat settings range from 50 amps all the way up to 190 amps , it is reverce polarity like most tig welders and i have tungsten electrodes ,I just don't understand why it won't weld aluminum when it will weld all the other metals .
Can anyone help me on the situation ?
thank you and i really enjoy reading the threads you guys have.
