Sounds a bit Red-Nekkie, but I cut a cigarette butt in half, inserted it between the spool and nozzle (or wire liner), and it applies just enough drag to work. Not the professional answer you were hoping for, but it works. So will a small piece of felt.

can Lotos 175 be used to tig weld steel and aluminum ?

Asked by jr October 7, 2018
5
Answers

This is a metal, inert gas shielded, arc, welder....MIG. This is not a Tungsten, inert gas shielded, arc, welder....TIG.. The spool gun used with Argon gas and aluminum wire will weld aluminum very well if you already know how to weld aluminum. If you don't already know to clean and preheat the Aluminum, you will not be successful.

Can I weld 1/4" aluminum with this machine?

Asked by Mostafiuc August 29, 2018

Yes you can with the included spool gun... you will need a bottle of 100% argon for welding aluminum.

Can i weld alloy aluminum car wheels with this machine?

Asked by Oscar March 12, 2018

Answers

You would need the right alloy and a lot of experience. Even then I wouldn’t trust it at high speed. The Lotos could do it though.

Am I reading this right, max thickness for mild steel is 18 guage?

Asked by Josh April 20, 2018

Answers

I have welded 1/4 steel several times with great results. Preheat to 200-250 helps with thicker material. Argon/Co2 gas works better than pure Argon on steel.

Can I use shielded gas for the Mig

Asked by Jimbo December 7, 2017
5
Answers

Yes. I use pure argon on stainless steel and aluminum. You can use co2 on steel if you want to, I prefer 75/25 argon/co2 for deeper penetration and smooth finish.

Will update after more usage... have used one 80cf bottle of gas and am quite impressed with the machine. After 3 small projects with 1/8" wall tube and 3/16 thick steel angle, I would say it's just as good, if not better than the big brands. I havent used the spool gun as of yet but do have a bottle of argon and plan on doing so this spring. Make sure you have a clean, dedicated 220v circuit.. buy a bottle and skip the flux core and you will be very happy with the purchase. Dedicated machine always do it better than a machine that does it all. I love the simplicity of the 2 dials and the included flow meter works well.

Received a well package welder/accessories, no damage as in other reviews. Easy to set up. Instructions are in English. Used it to run some beads on aluminum. Did not take long to get wire speed and heat set.

Machine arrived works great ...face shield is kinda a joke but getting a real auto darkening welding helmet is $40. I wish the leads and ground cable were longer. i also have the lotos plasma tig welding unit and love it too..this is a great machine for the hobbyist or diy weekend welder like myself

The machine seems to be well built, just barely tried it out without gas on steel. I haven't tried the spool gun yet. Seems to weld well and maintain a good constant bead. I am happy with it so far, I would buy it again.
