On the welding, remember with aluminum that once you have a puddle, you have fusion (as long as you have enough amps running through the material). It's more like playing with icing than it's like what we normally think of as welding.I'm barely adequate at aluminum welding, but the instructions/video say 1" so that's what I've been doing.
I need to buy cases of it - especially since they've been salting the roads more. Where do you get roll on?
I have started playing with my new machine - inverter machines do make a lot of difference. I've welded motorcycle frames (CRF frames), my welds have held up just fine, it's just not as pretty as I like. The advice is good, I liken it to soldering, but the frosting thing makes sense too.On the welding, remember with aluminum that once you have a puddle, you have fusion (as long as you have enough amps running through the material).

Pro tip. Add the plasma to your cart and go through the checkout process then walk away for a few hours. If you do, you'll likely find a 10% off entire order coupon in your email inbox... worth about $200 for me.I've come close to pulling the trigger on a langmuir table a few times.
Reviews I've read are all positive. Like all CNC plasma cutters, you need a good plasma cutter, so don't cheap out on that. THC would be a nice addition from what I've read, but if you use water table and get tuned in right, warpage is minimal, meaning THC is less important.
