Staff Answer
Shielding gas for both TIG welding (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW) and MIG Welding (Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW) use pure argon for aluminum materials up to ½" in thickness. Above ½" in thickness, operators may add anywhere between 25 to 75 percent helium to make the arc hotter and increase weld penetration. Argon is best because it provides more cleaning action for the arc than helium does and it is also less expensive than helium.

Never use any shielding gas that contains oxygen or carbon dioxide, as this will oxidize the aluminum.

Northern offers wire for aluminum welding. See items below.

No. Welder requires 230VAC single phase supply. 120V AC will not work. However, most homes have a 230V supply in the panel from which a receptacle can be installed where needed.

answer 4
It is 220 volt only, so you'd need a 30 amp 220 volt circuit. When I built my garage a few years back I failed to include a 220 circuit so I had to add one after I purchased the Handler 190. Usually an electrician will have to be hired to run the circuit if you don't already have one available. For the my garage/house addition I received a "self wire" permit from the building inspection department. I was required to prove to the inspector that I knew what I was doing before he issued the permit.

The Hobart Ironman 230 is a professional industrial version. If you are going to be constructing more than one boat, this is definitely the unit for you. The Hobart Handler 190 can handle this project also, depending on the thickness of the material that you are welding. The Handler does have a shorter duty cycle time which will extend the time of your project.
