First thing I think you need to do is get a stainless steel wire wheel. Clean the aluminum just before you weld. Other wise I think you did great! :wink:

What type of tungsten are you using, pure, (green)? I never really liked the ball on pure tungsten when using a transformer machine welding aluminum. With my Dynasty 300 I'm to the point now I use 2 % Ceriated, (orange) for everything. When welding aluminum I like the way it keeps a point.

I don't like the ball either. On my 200 I started using the lanthanum (gold) sharpened with a very small "blunt" (about 1/4 the size of the diameter) I'll pick up a pack of the orange and give it a try. The 350 seems to like the lanthanum better than pure (green). I haven't tried anything else.

I never tried the Ceriated on a transformer machine, so I have no idea how it would work on your 350. I have read on some welding forums where people suggest it though.
