    Are you sure this is cast "aluminum" and not cast "iron" , "steel" or ductile iron?

    I'll refraze my previous statement. I only know of tig for small cast aluminum repairs. I have used a spool gun before but that would have taken me 3 days to tig vs 6 hours mig.

    Yeah for sure it's aluminum. It was a broken snow cleat for roofing. Don't know how or why it welded with flux core gas less wire, but it did. As far as getting red hot, 90 amps and a few minutes welding pretty much got it there. It sure befuzzles me too.
