Evening all, looking for some advice please. I would like to do some alloy welding on lorry body floors, just over lapping existing panels. I've been offered a 400 amp older Kemppi machine and assured this will be good to do the job. Apparently I also need a spool gun which I already have for a cebora welder that I brought along time ago and now have sold. Unfortunately this will not fit on the Kemppi and I have to buy a spool gun for 350 + vat with a euro connection. This is fine if it all works and is a good way to go forward. Would really appreciate some advice so not to waste money. Thankyou.

Get whoever is selling to do you a demo, using the wire you intend to use. Make sure the wire is fresh, or foil packed as Ali wire can deteriorate quickly if stored in poor conditions.

It is possible to use a conventional MIG torch for Ali welding, you will need a teflon liner, u type drive rolls and an Ali type contact tip.
