Default Re: Are foreign metals a welding issue?

steel should be steel
its more likely an issue of the filler material (welding rods) being correct for the application or correct process

you need a particular rod to weld stainless to carbon steel 309L

there is no filler to put aluminum to steel with any kind of arc welding that i know of

most "steel" bike frames are 4130 chrome moly
