    2.4mm filler is gonna make for an awkward time on thin wall. Takes a good 100 amps to make it play nicely at that thickness.

    Are there actually any trained welders contributing to this thread? It sure doesn't look like it, just a few people who have watched YT and have no training at all. So many experts with so little knowledge.

    I'm a welder but I'm colour-blind so aluminium is beyond me unfortunately.

    I'm actually a certified instagram welder without the fancy jumbo cups, they didn't tech that at tech.
