Well bust my britches! Have always heard it was impossible with gas set up.

Just did a search on welding aluminum. Found this EXCELLENT link: Welding Aluminum, with video demonstration how to do it. He made it look so easy, nothing fancy needed, tig welding rod, jar of flux and youre ready to go.

Woohoo! I will go to bed smarter than when I woke up!
