If you have a gas cutting torch smudge the aluminum with acetyline fume from just acetylene burning in the torch. then preheat the aluminum with oxygen acetylene until the smudged carbon leaves the aluminum. turn off oxygen acetylene torch and make your puddle

I'm not sure what it's doing to know why it's not working but if I was trying to weld aluminum I use 100% argon in ac with high frequency continuous and a 9 second post flow with 5356 crown weldind rod.

Trying find out what i would have to have to start TIG welding with a Miller Bobcat 250 1992 year model


you will need a AC high frequency unit to weld aluminum. For stainless and mild steel just need a dry run tig torch, hose kit and 100% argon.

I have a miller microwave 200. what settings should i use for aluminum welding? dcep, ac, dcen? i'm using a3/32'' tungsten and trying to weld on 1/4'' alum plate. the weld is not turning out to be a smooth...


I think you mean you have a Miller Synchrowave 200.

Typically, you would want to use AC below about 250 amps. In this case (to keep it simple), use AC, adjust your balance to about 4, use an 1/8" pure tungsten, pure argon at about 20CFh, and set the panel at 170amps to get things started. For general purpose, use 4043 filler.

Now - these are just generic settings, but they will get you going.

Sounds like a bad thermister on the rectifier or a bad control board.

Not exactly sure what you mean however, the schematic diagram for your machine will be pasted inside the case. Also Miller will let you download a PDF file of your manual at their website www.millerelectric.com
