Default Re: Are foreign metals a welding issue?

What are the numbers on those rods and where can I get them???

Aluminum and steel differ in that there are ferrious and non ferrious metals. Ferrious are magnetic!!! Took a while for me to find the answer to that. They just don't mix well, even when moulten. Tin I believe is aluminum and steel, not sure of process to get them to bind?

Your flame on your gas set up has allot to do with the carbon content your welding. A more actylene rich flame will put more carbon into your steel.
