The mig welder should be capable of welding aluminum not stainless but the makers should be able to give you more detail. mig is used for steel and aluminum normaly but I do not know this transformer

I have just bought a Gasless Mig Welder and someone has said its only used for tacking. Is this right?

gasless mig welders are used the same as gas /wire migs
the only difference is the polarity of the leads to the hand piece and the work ground and this is indicated by the plug in the machine for the ground lead
what the "someone " would have been referring to is the duty cycle of the unit
every welder has a duty cycle because of the heat generated in the welding process by the electronic components and transformers and if that duty cycle is exceeded the machine stops working until it cools down or damages the circuits
it is stated as a % of time in use so a unit with a 20% duty cycle means that for every 20% of use it has to cool for 80% of time
as an example ---if you were using a stick welder, the time taken to burn the stick would be 20% and the time taken to insert a new stick and clean the slag off the weld to resume the process would be the 80%
It also depends on the amps being used for the weld
on a machine with 120amps capacity and you were using 15 amps to weld sheet metal--body panels - the length of welding time will be considerable compared to using 115 amps where the weld time would be a few minutes
there are plenty of helpful hints in the operators manual and other technical publications on line

Fire power 160 heat range will not go low enough to weld thin material.

You need a smaller welder. Pick up a nice 110 unit that has at least 4 power settings. I have a lincoln 95 amp that will weld body panels on low and 1/2" on high.

Is there a connection for gas to mig weld on a Clarke 6440 flux welder

No. Not with the spool up on the gun. It is one of the few flux core specific welders.

This is not to say you could not try. the hard part is the plumbing between the gun and the main box. If you can get that figured out it would otherwise be the same components as other MIG welders.

I am trying to locate a chart that would have the recommended operator control settings for different types & thickness of metals using my Snap-On YA 212A Ind. Mig wire welder.

See if your local welding supplier has a welding guide available. Some even include them as part of their catalog.

There is no real hard and fast absolte rule when welding with Mig. If you weld outside, and in the country where line voltage can vary, what worked well a day ago may not work well today. Those tables are only a rough guide at best, and while useful to you starting out, after a time when you are used to your welder, you will not need it.

What the weld looks like from the back side can tell you more useful information than you might get from a simple arbitrary table.

The best guide- experience. Start welding up scrap to get used to the welder, and get used to the sound of frying bacon or eggs. Then you can rely on your own judgement instead of feeling a need to refer to a book each time.

What the simple rule of thumb is, pick a heat range you think you need to use, then grab some scrap and lay out a bead adjusting the wire speed until you hear it sound like bacon on the frying pan. Then you adjust your speed to the thickness of the metal to achieve full *********** and ideally the back side looking like the front side. If not enough ***********- go up a heat range, and reset wire speed and try again.

When I was doing industrial welding for a grain handling equipment company I moved all around the shop and ended up on many different machines. None of them operated with the identical settings of the others even though a couple of them were of the same manufacture..

How do you ignite a Lincoln Electric Welder???

You don't need an striker with a MIG welder just hook the ground cable to the base metal point the nozzle where you want to weld and pull the trigger and it will weld. Household current will run a MIG welder Take a look at the plug on the welder if it will pug into a 110v outlet you are all set, but most likely you will need a 220v outlet and maybe as much as an electric dryer type outlet. 

It takes a lot of practice to be a decent welder you also need to know what voltage and wire speed settings to use for a given thickness and type of material. 

You don't mention shielding gas, if you are using a flux core wire you don't need it, but if you are using regular wire you do. 

If I may make a suggestion, If you really want to learn how to weld, find a community college near you and take an introductory welding class. You will get a wealth of information and practice on different welding processes. The instructor will work with you and get you welding much better and faster than you will on your own. Most importantly you will get a lot of safety information.

This is a good introductory book:
