  • Miller 211 with spoolmate150

    I am looking to purchase the Miller211 with a spoolmate 150. I am looking to weld aluminum using 5356 wire 035.? Will this machine handle that and up to what thickness can I weld?

    Yes it will use that wire. I would say 3/16 thickness maybe a tad more. The book says 3/8 alum...Bob

      5356 wire takes a bit more heat to melt into the basemetal, so the thickness is just a hair less than when using 4043 wire. 5356 is rated to 3/16", and 4043 is rated to 3/8". I guess that's a big difference, lol. With 0.035", 5356, you'd be at 8/10 on voltage, and 100/100 on the wirespeed, so not much more available there.
