    Thanks, Stu
    I am curious as to what machine you are thinking gets 1/8 inch penetration on aluminum cause for $1000 you are not going to get a machine that even comes close to that.

    And when the size of a fillet weld is measured, it is measured from the leg to the toe and the effective throat is what actually means anything.

    I think you may be misunderstanding the ratings for these machines. When they say 1/4 inch, that means that is the max. thickness of base metal for a single pass weld.
