http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/lincoln-powermig-350.html For this aluminum project, I am using a Lincoln Powermig 350mp multi process welder.This welder will do DC lift arc tig, mig, push pull aluminum mig, or stick welding. I have some plans to do more videos using this machine on stuff like a stainless steel pipe and flange, a jeep wrangler bumper project, and more...so that I can give it a go on tig, mig, flux core, and stick.

Winter break was near and my instructor announced that a nearby shop was hiring welders. So I went to test for the job. I bombed out on the mig welding vertical tee joint test , but I go hired anyway as a stick welder. My job was to weld the mast head support for mobile drilling rigs. It was high strength steel and I sat on a 5 gallon bucket all day welding with 3/16" diameter 11018 rods.
This videos shows pulse mig aluminum, not all aspects but a lot of them. It shows how if the machine calls for a specific gas (like 100% argon) and you know everything a little better than the manufacture and you use a helium argon mixture, how you can fall on your face.... it shows how you can cough if you don't use the correct PPE (personal protection equipment like respirators !!) It also shows what happens if you do not prep your material correctly and just weld over freshly plasma cut stuff ... Learn how to identify synergic settings too hot or too cold as well as too much voltage or not enough voltage. Lets have a look at stick out, arc length and arc shots ..... And learn what it takes to make a youtube video vs "just doing a welding job"
http://weldmongerstore.com/ http://www.weldingtipsandtricks.com/pipe-welding-6010.html a few tips for welding a root pass in a 6 inch 6g pipe with 6010 electrode. Fitup is as important as any welding technique so pay attention to getting as good a fit as possible. 75-100 amps is the range listed by the uc-28 spec sheet I read. I found that about 80 amps worked ok provided I used a 3/32" gap and heavy 3/32" land.
Did you ever wonder how they weld aluminum with a Mig Welder? It can be very difficult, if not impossible. Usually, they use an expensive Spool Gun that is an attachment to a Mig Welder. That allows a welder to get smooth aluminum welds. But, who has that kind of money to spend on a Spool Gun? This video shows how to weld aluminum without any add-ons. With a few tricks and secrets, aluminum can actually be welded with a 110 volt Mig Welder.

Don't attempt to Mig Weld or do any other type of welding without Certified Welding Training. With or Without that Certified knowledge, welding can be hazardous, and by welding you do so at your own risk. NEVER open up a welding machine as it can still have dangerous voltage built-up in the electronics. Whenever changing out consumables on a Mig Welder, first TURN OFF the machine and unplug it, also.
