  • Questionable Posts.

    I have seen new "ideas" spammers have been using recently. One they ask a question. Then it is answered sometimes with a great answer from a seasoned forum member. Then another "newbie" posts another answer attaching the spam somewhere in the post. Then I delete the spam post which most likely isn't the first post and the whole post goes away. Because the OP and the newbie poster are the same person and they are both gone now. Hmmmm...Bob

    Well I posted a question about welding very very thin aluminum for strength, and this morning I brought my printer into work (not an easy thing for me to do) so I could print out the answer someone left me, and they recommended a particular Miller welder that had a very, very low setting. Now I'm on here and I can't find my post, I refreshed the page before printing (in case there was any more input) and it's gone. Could someone replace my post, and the detailed response someone was so helpful to take the time to leave? I would really appreciate it, I became a member of this forum to use it, and I'm a real, interested user of the forum. Any spam-like posts below my question were NOT me, I assure you. Thanks.

      I remember your post, but as you say, it appears to be gone. I think the response you are referring to came from H80N. IIRC, he recommended the Dynasty200dx welder but I can't remember the torch that was recommended. He checks the forum often and will probably respond.

        He's pretty much a savant, so he'll be able re-spew his answer like its the first time. Rest assured, you'll get the help you're asking for. But...I still want to know why you need to weld sheets of aluminum from a soda can together. Making a space ship?

            not to worry....

            ideal setup would be a Dynasty 210DX Tigrunner and a Weldcraft
            WP-125, Micro TIG Torch

            will fill in the particulars

            This being the "Ideal" combination in my estimation... it is by no means the cheapest... be prepared for a little sticker shock

            https://www.millerwelds.com/en/acces...5-micro-series

            This is based on a guesstimate from the limited info I got from your question...

            the material varies in thickness depending where on the can body you harvest it... here is an article that will give you more info

            If you can give us a better idea of what you are trying to do... we can give better answers

            What you intend to accomplish can likely be done for less money with a used Dynasty 200DX and a 24 series air cooled torch.... but let's look into what your real needs and budget are

                Sorry Ken it was me. I deleted the 2nd and 3rd post but yours went gone too. I do believe the 2nd and 3rd were the same person...Bob
