  • Aluminum Cylinder Head Repair Miller Dynasty 350 & 4943 Filler

    Watch as Miller Marketing Manager Andy Weyenberg and Scott Duggins, owner of PAR Racing Engines, use the Dynasty 350 TIG welder & 4943 filler to repair an aluminum cylinder head. Using the machine's memory function, they can quickly toggle between the various recommended settings for this project. The ability to switch out and use multiple heads on the Weldcraft W-225 Modular TIG Torch allows them to easily reach tight areas. Using the Dynasty 350 also eliminates the need to preheat.

    For those not yet familiar with 4943 is the datasheet

        Jaw dropping performance by man and machine! I watched it several times.

        One thing: it seemed that Scott removed the filler rod far away from the cup, outside the zone of the shielding gas. Is that true? Regardless, I'm going to try that tomorrow as I practice my AL beads at 80 A. I expect that keeping the filler rod further way from the puddle will reduce my number of tungsten contamination incidents which are usually a collision between the tungsten and filler rod.

          Now that you mention it, I keep the filler rod a bit further back when welding aluminum as well. Get super close like with a steel rod and it just balls up the of the rod blobs into the puddle before I'm ready for it and it makes me sad. And cuss.

            Beautiful work and repair - I've had my eyes on a 350 or 400 to replace my other TIGs and just can't afford one right now. Next year FOR SURE.
