      I know Im digging up an old thread, but any body have any more pictures?

      I was thinking about trying this again, as over the weekend I saw one of the new Bud Lite Aluminum "bottles" and noticed how stout the aluminum was compared to a conventional can.

        Welding cans with a 200dx

        OK...I have read this thread many times and found many ideas. But what I am looking for is a photo of the best weld with the detailed setting info etc that was used for that particular weld. So submit a photo with the detailed settings...thank you. Rick

          Rumor has it that Century used to have a factory rep that would weld those cans together with a 120V mig doing demonstrations.
