  • Aluminum welding setup for Millermatic Vintage???

    Hello,I have a Millermatic Vintage mig welder. I want to be able to weld aluminum.It is not something I will do very often but just from time to time.I need to know what is my best way to go here and what all I need to set my welder up for this.I think i need a Spoolmatic 30a feeder and a wc-24 control box.That's a pretty expensive set up if I am correct.Or should I sell that welder and buy one already made for a spoolgun?
    I work in a bodyshop and most of my welding is light duty.(just some fyi)
    Thanks

    A machine that is already setup for aluminum, basically just has the WC-24 already inside of it.

    You'd still need the 30A spool gun. sooooo, since you already have a machine, best just to get the WC-24, and the spoolgun. Overall it'll be much cheaper to use the equipment you already have....

      You have a choice of 3 spoolguns for that machine and you just need the gun of your choice and the 10 pin module.
