  • torch welding alum with hydrogen

    Has anyone out there torch welded with hydrogen on alum? What changes are needed to do the process correct? From what I understand it is a much cleaner weld. I
    also understand you can not use the same hose or torch if it has acce. in it.

          I have talked to some old race car fabricators. They say it is a much cleaner weld.

            From what I understand there is much less glare with hydrogen than acetylene so it's easier to see the puddle.

              From what I have seen the hydrogen is a nice clean looking weld. The acetylene torch welding I have done seem very dirty. Mckinney chassis and spizter gas welds their tanks and they are a thing of beauty. I can't find any good pics of them though.
