Stringer Welds Completed (Day 19)
Not much to report this weekend, after a few hundred welds, the stringers are finally in for good. I also managed a few of the frame forward face welds also. I'm definitely not into guns in any way unless of course they are used for welding. For aluminium, a push-pull gun is the way to go, the one I have from TECARC in the UK, model PPS-360 plugs into any welder with a Euro style connection and away it goes. Great results with a very reliable feed and minimal fuss which is what you really need with soft aluminium wire being feed up the gun for 6 metres or so. So, besides my trusty patch-work TIG glove with a garden glove forefinger, used for MIG and my stainless steel brush, the push-pull MIG gun by TECARC is definitely one of my favourite tools.
