  • help me fix my POS shovel

    I have the typical aluminum scoop shovel with the typical cracks. I'm a steel guy and I have an inverter TA 185. Can someone line me out on runnin some aluminum beads? What rod, amperage, etc. Pretend I'm in the third grade, I can take it.

    What is a "typical aluminum scoop shovel?" It will be helpful if you provide a more detailed explanation of the welding problem confronting you. Understand that perhaps a lot of us in different parts of the U.S.A. aren't familiar with a term that may be commonly used in your area. How large is your scoop shovel, what's the thickness of the metal, and where are the cracks located? A photo also would help a lot to clear the air.

      He probably has a "Grain Scoop", an oversized flat nosed shovel with handgrip handle.
