Got one barely used given to me. I've been playing with it trying to get it to weld some 1/16" and 1/8" aluminum diamond plate but it doesn't seem to penetrate. Is it the welder or something I'm doing?
100% but I'll have to check on the flow rate. Left it at my dads shop since I don't have 220 in my garage at home.What shielding gas are you using? What flow rate? Gas is very important to getting things to work right.
......before welding with acetone
I have been welding MOST of my life with ALL the different kinds of welding techniques, machines and styles.
BUT I have NEVER, EVER welded with ACETONE!!!..............
Just struck me as funny, now back to the regularly scheduled program...................................

X2............I've had a Miller Econo-Tig for 15+ years, done lots of welding with it.
Built my chrome moly cage with it no problem.
Welded lots of .125 aluminum with it, even done some thicker with some pre-heat.
Aluminum on AC and clean, clean , clean.
Prep is key - and lots of practice - aluminum can be tricky.
You can probably get the manual for that machine on the Miller web site.
