Thread: Stick welding aluminum

  1. #11
    I have stick welded aluminum before when in a pinch. I would never recommend it though. The rods are super expensive. The slag is tough to remove you have to be really quick and steady and your pretty will guessing where your puddle is most of the time as you can't see it.

    I highly recommend a spool gun or tig. Although if you do plan on doing it, I can't stress enough "good ventilation"
    The fumes are no good

    Stick welding is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode coated in flux to lay the weld.An electric current of any type from then welding power supply is use to form an electric arc between the electrode and the metals to be joined.
