  • Aluminum Sculpture

    This is a 9 foot tall cast aluminum statue I welded together for a local artist. It was cast in 24 pieces of 319 Al. I cant say enough about my Hobart 187. I swapped out the liner to a Teflon one and away I went. After several unsuccessful attempts with 4043, I finally used 5356 .035 wire with no problems. Don't let anyone ever say these welders arnt commercial grade. I originally chose to use this over my much larger Miller due to the ease of swapping the liner. My Hobart never broke a sweat.
