Recommendations for A Small TIG Welder for Aluminium
I have reached the point where I can no longer avoid the purchase of a TIG welder. I work in aluminium making wind chimes and so far have been able to get by without welding but I have a new design which will require welding to make it work. The aluminium I will be welding is thin aluminium sheet, about 1/8" thick and round rod, 1/2" diameter maximum. There are no long beads required, just small tack welds to keep parts from moving.
I don't need a multi-function welding machine as I don't see myself doing any welding on heavy steel items and I'm over 70 years old so I don't know how much longer I will physicaly I will be able to get out to my shop to work.
I would appreciate any suggestions/recommendations for a welder which will fit my needs. Even a small welder which someone has "out-grown" would be considered. Thanks.
Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!
Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
