This is my first post, and I have limited welding experience. Previously I have done a course in stick welding, but have no TIG or MIG experience.
I have a copper coffee machine boiler, and wanted to know if it is possible to weld it using a stick welder. I notice that Cigweld has a special electrode (Bronzecraft AC-DC) for welding copper and copper alloys. Has anyone ever tried?
Also, I am interested in what the weld quality would be like? Strength? The boiler will be run at upto 1.5 Bar pressure. Obviously TIG would be better, but the cost of getting it done for me is similar to a complete boiler.
If it is possible, I will weld and then get the boiler pressure tested professionally.
Thanks for any help in advance.
