    Welding to the civil war?

    Where did the North vs. the South thing come in here? I think this started off as Aluminum? AND...I believe the Civil War has been over for some time!

    I've had a few complaints regarding this thread... Please leave your prejudices at the "door" when you sign in.

    Thanks

        My aluminum welds are sometimes OK at best, not sure what material a receiver dish would be. Is there anyway to test I wonder?

        I am a Hoosier, maybe thats why my welds suck

              I could not imagine anyone would have been offended. I am from Indiana, don't care if I am called a Yank, proud of it. Proud to be an American, proud to be who I am period.

UNDERSTAND THAT JUST BECAUSE HE HAS A CONFEDERATE TATTOO ON HIS ARM, DOESN'T MAKE HIM A "HATER" OF ANYONE, OR AS YOU PUT IT A" PRE-JUDGER", SUGGESTING OR IMPLYING THAT JUST BECAUSE HE HAS SAID TATOO, IT MAKES HIM A RACIST OR AS THE RACIST MINDSET INSPIRED TERM IMPLIES "HE'S PREJUDICED , MAIN!!!"

                IT WOULD APPEAR THAT YOU ARE THE PREJUDICED ONE HERE SUGGESTING THAT ONE OF YOUR PATRONS IS PREJUDICED JUST BECAUSE OF A TATOO OR SOME PROUD FRIENDLY, PLAYFUL JAB (IN CASE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN IN THE SOUTHERN U.S. TEXANS ARE THE MOST PROUD OF ALL 50 STATES TO LIVE WHERE THEY LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

                          Would extruded aluminum weld different?

                          How can you tell if it's extruded?

                          Is there a chart listing all of the aluminum types and chericterists?

                            If you mean the welding material from the dish.... yes. The welds are getting better. Not great, just better. Last night I cut a piece in two....butted them togther and tigged the seam. I didn't burn the seam edge away(that's a first)
                            ran beads from edge to edge without collapsing the base material at each end (also good).
                            T joints leave something to be desired yet.
                            When learning to tig...everyone says to PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
                            Well I guess all I did was practice, practice. Maybe the better welds don't happen untill your're in the third PRACTICE part of the learning curve.

                              I'm not sure if the welding is much different but I'll bet it is.
                              Just about any special shape has to be extruded. Patio door frames, 80/20
                              alum, storm window frames, shower door tracks, table saw fence systems, etc. I have no idea what grade it could be related to or if all extruded is
                              equal in grade.
                              Maybe someone here knows and will chime in.
