    Question 4943 for 356 Aluminum TIG Casting repair..?

    Anybody used this stuff??

    the data sheet looks very good...

    is this the new hot tip TIG filler for cylinder head repair?

    Default maxal 4943 filler rod

    I just began using it for wrought and cast.
    The data sheets show advantages as you noticed.
    It wets out well, runs good and is clean rod--not
    made from recycled cans.

    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    I love it. In fact I am retiring my 4043 stock in favor of 4943. Only if a job calls out for 4043 will I use it.

    I have been doing a bunch of castings with 4943 and like it. I think it works well with 356.

    Here is their sales contacts page... they should be able to tell you who in your area sells it.. maybe internet sales sources as well..
    There are a lot of regional contacts...

    4943 seems popular with some folks at Welding Web. B_C just started using it and says he likes it.

    Question How About Machinability???

    Is 4943 gummy like 4043...

    or can it be machined and threaded like 5356...

    just curious if anybody has experience on that aspect...
