    Default Lincoln Superglaze 4047

    Has anyone used Lincoln's 4047 aluminum wire? Suppose to increase silicon , minimize hot crack and higher shear strength than 4043. Just wondered if it could be possibly used in a 211w spoolgun since it can't run 5356 well.

    Who told you that the 211 can't run 5356, and why? If anything, 5356 feeds smoother and burns hotter than 4043 due to the magnesium.

    The good folks at Miller did. Refer to the lastest specs on the machine and post #25 in this thread http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...2C+5356%2C4043

    I don't say it can't be done but I think I read somewhere else that 5356 needs more current than the 211 can continuously deliver.----Meltedmetal

    Perhaps it is this article. http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...cess-at-Home-/

    I don't know when the article was written, but it it does burn hotter and faster, so more skill is involved. The article does recommend the use of 5356 for a stronger weld and corrosion resistance, and I can tell you that you would want to use 5356 for a better anodize color match. Personally I only use 5356, so experience does help.
