Asked by: JUNIOR
Most definitely not,, This unit is strictly a "stick welder" primarily for steel, Not Aluminum Aluminum must either be Mig / or Tig welded using a shielding gas such as Argon -This unit has been around for many,many years and it's design hasn't changed at all - My personal opinion is the amp setting dial only does segment adjustments where by one setting may be too low, or too high, One cannot dial in or fine tune the amp setting between any two settings - Advise using E7014 electrodes as a welding wire rod , no more than 3/16 dia - Need a helmet with a lens grade of #10 ,, a higher number than 10 will be hard to see what your doing,, or a digital lens helmet where you can set the darkness shade , But there expensive - Advise that you try to weld with someone who's got a welding machine ( call it a warm up, practice session) first !! Any weld shop should welcome you as a first timer to try it out (I know I would) - Be cognizant that any welding is a sure fire hazard

Asked by: Anonymous
If it's the right plug configuration,, and the right volt / amperage capacity I don't see why not -- But don't plan on doing anything with this, anywhere inside the house, condo,, townhouse,, apartment ,, garden shed,,chicken coup ! ! ! ! -- Arc welding (stick welding) is an extremely large Fire Hazard

what do they mean by fuse? are they meaning 50amp breaker as in the home breaker box

Asked by: Anonymous
YES ,,, to your question,,,, I believe you can fire this up with 40 Amps as a minimum -- But I do not want to skip over what the spec sheet says as it's input power needed as a 50 amp fuse/breaker -- fuse or breaker believe to be referred to as the same -- Now be advised that you need to be aware of FIRE hazards if your gunna fire this mach up, and start welding inside your garage,,,or anywhere for that matter (this is clearly a large issue)
