Filling a Large Hole in Aluminum

Testimonials

Mike,

These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.

 

aluminum welding and metal repair

I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

One comment that Mike encounters frequently when demo-ing at shops is "That works great for small holes & cracks, but how will it work with larger gaps and holes?"

 

In this video clip, Mike welds a dime-sized hole with Super Alloy 5. A definite must-see!

 

TIPS:

 

Notice the technique: we approach the repair from the side when using oxyacetylene, to avoid overheating and melting thin aluminum. Rather than applying constant heat, the torch is moved away from the parent metal from time to time to allow the metal to cool slightly, solidify, and build upon itself.

 

To increase bonding strength, always add flux every time you add rod.
