Much of what I will be welding with AC will be very thin aluminum, in the range of .035-.049, 6061 tubing mostly. I'm practicing with .032 sheets right now, and making a fair mess of it. Some of it owes to my poor technique, but I have the sense that I may be up against some sort of AC or HF issue with this aging machine. All that for another day...

I'm learning a good deal from the YouTube channel, so that's a plus. When it comes to TIG, I have no shortage of questions, and despite the old saying to the contrary, some of my questions may be pretty darned dumb.

Hi From Florida Tampa Bay Region!!! http://bug-o.xyz/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/hi-from-florida-tampa-bay-region http://bug-o.xyz/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/hi-from-florida-tampa-bay-region
I've always admired what welders can create!!! I have done no welding to date. I am retired and can live happily on my retirement income. I am 56, male and healthy. I want, if it is practical to strive to do so, to begin to learn to TIG weld ALUMINUM, so that ultimately I can construct an ocean crossing SINGLE CHINE sailboat of some 36 - 40 feet. I have time and I have the ability to FOCUS on goals. the main question I have first off is, is TIG the correct method for heavy duty SINGLE CHINE sailboat construction as opposed to other welding methods? ANY ALUMINUM SAILBOAT WELDERS OUT THERE?

Thank you all very much,

I have been watching and reading as much as can on welding and the processes not to mention the machines available, it took me a while to determine which process to go with and settled on Tig for now (gotta start somewhere). Mind you I have never welded a single thing in my entire life so am looking to educate myself and for help for when I receive my Fathers Day/ B'day gift.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
