    You might consider adding a stubby, like a water cooled #24 and a pencil torch to your collection for tight work..

    I have never been a big fan of flex heads...

    You might look at Marcella's videos and see what torch he is using in tight quarters...

    I purchased a Flex-loc maybe nine months ago or so. Thought I would put it on today but lost the little wires used to tie the hoses on.

    Having to get in a tight place and weld aluminum would be tough.

    yours doesn't use the screw-type fittings that compress the hose over the barb?

    Even then, some 0.023" or 0.030" SS304 mig wire will do the trick in a pinch.
