  • Fenders?

    I want to attatch aluminum diamond plate fenders to 10 guage steel. I have a Millermatic 211. Is there a way to weld the two disimilar metals together?

      Hey ddsrod,
      You can rivet them, screw them, or glu them.... not gonna WELD them. You indicate you have a Miller 211 yet your query indicates you know nothing regarding welding of ferrous & non-ferrous metals. Sounds like you need to take a welding class.......

        You can make some really nice brackets out of steel and weld THEM to the frame and then bolt the fenders to that.
        That is exactly how they were meant to be attached.

              He is just telling it like it is. He also gives advice on how to attach the diamond plate. I do not see anything wrong with his post.

                I don't recall anybody appointing you boss. If I missed the notification, please let me know.

                There's nothing wrong with Denny's post.

                    thick skin

                    I did not take offense. I made some brackets riveted the aluminum to them and welded them on. It worked great. I realize it was a dumb idea to try to weld aluminum to steel..... but my mig welder has been so amazingly effective I was temporarily delirious..

                      YES YOU CAN.

                      You can buy blocks that are steel bonded to aluminum at great pressure through explosive welding process.
                      They are used to weld aluminum houses on steel boat decks.

                      Just google them.

                        The guy is just trying to learn so he should ask any question he wants. A welding class would be most help but we don't know his situation.
