    Yes, true.
    I thinks it's about the best cast rod I've used. Not nearly as easy to bend the built up and ground to size sections as 4043.
    We do use it on 6061 when we know that is what it is for sure. Generally we use 5356 on sheet goods and extrusions. But we mainly weld on 5052.

    Yes it does say wheels in the description from Hobart. I don't like it so much on 6061 but its perfect for wheels...Bob

    started a topic Hobart 4943 wire on aluminum rims.

    Hobart 4943 wire on aluminum rims.

    I love this wire for aluminum rims. This rim was missing 3+ inches of the front edge. So I built it up with my MM185 and Spoolmate 185 and filed it to suit..Bob
Working...
