  • Tubing fitment

    Just playing around today in garage working on tubing fitment. This
    was made out of 6061 AL. Did not have chance to weld yet. (kids came
    home).

        Looks good.

        I have never worked with tubing that thick, but you may have a better time welding if they were beveled. It will take a lot of heat to fuse all the way to the inside diameter of the tubing.

        Is that ground freehand or cut with a hole saw?

            Eric75,
            I think your right I willgive the pieces a little bevel, Also the notches were
            done on a hole-saw type notcher, the other cuts were done with a band-saw.
            This was just for pratice anyway. I may play with the freq. to see what kind of pentration I can get??? Thanks for your advice. Im new to Alum welding.

              This set up is actually an aircraft certification cluster that is used to test weldors ability to see if they can pass the test and get certified. Usually done with Chrome Moly tubing, but it would be interesting to see the results of your welds on aluminum.
