    Why are you trying to weld your cap? Mine gets enough spatter when stick welding and sometimes gets holes burned into it; it's cotton so doesn't ever melt and drip onto my head, but it doesn't conduct current either.

    Don't you realize everything is about smithdoor.

    Regardless of the question,
    He will tell you how he did it 30 years ago....

    It's just repetitive nonsense every day.

    It works great for hobby and some types repair.

    They have spool guns that on paper 📃 welded down to 24 gauge and others spool guns to 20 gauge aluminum.

    I work in steel mainly A36 and only did aluminum tig as hobby.
    I finally used tig only for die repair as did not need a filler rod.

    Dave, if someone asked how long it took the pioneers to walk beside a Conestoga wagon going across the country in the 1840's, you'd likely say you would have ridden a motorcycle instead, because it's faster....

    I'd weld the Harley together with flux core.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.
