As our shop capabilities expand some of our equipment is feeling the pressure. With some of our upcoming projects our current aluminum mig set up just won't cut it. We have a multimatic 215 w/ spool mate 100, which is a constant source of frustration, as it constantly jams and it's design requires a time consuming disassembly to get up and running again.
I'm looking to invest in a dedicated aluminum mig. I see a lot of other shops running the 350p but I'm curious about what my other (less pricey) options are. We weld a lot of tread plate around 1/8" thickness, often 2'-6' continuous runs. 3/8" would probably be the MAX we would ever need to handle and that would be seldom.
I'm fine with a used machine but availability seems scarce.
Any help is appreciated!!
