I want to do aluminum repair work on boats and trailers etc..
Can I do this without a water cooler connected to the arc stabilizer.
I have a basic stick machine and a Hobart 1611 high frequency arc stabilizer.
My air cooled tig torch is good to 150 amps.
I understand that the argon flowing through the torch usually keeps it cooled.
Do I have to connect a cooler to the high frequency unit or will it work ok without the water running through it. Any help is greatly appreciated. I really need to find more work to prevent losing my house. I love this website.
