    6061 T6 Aluminum Welding Setup
    I am welding small bicycle frames for small kids. This is the setup that I started learning with. With constant struggles with my machine I decided I should reconsider my setup and what I am using.

    MACHINE:
    Miller Diversion 165

    CURRENTLY USING:
    Material: 6061 T6
    Wall Thickness: .049
    Tungsten: = 3/32" 1.5% Lanthanated (Gold Tip)
    Filler: 3/32 ER 5356

    What setup do you think would be best?

    I'm not sure what kind of problems you're running into, but the miller is a good unit. You might try asking over Weld Talk Message Board and Online Forum - Hobart Welders They know a lot about whats what and can help you out.

    I'm just wanting to know if these settings seems correct? Mainly the tungsten and filler.
