Obviously my first post forgot to add this. Has anyone used the spool and gun setup for MIG to weld aluminum. I always thought there was stainless adaptions but never seen the aluminum. Been in the market for a TIG. and won't buy if success can be done with MIG

From all my experience with aluminum welding, you can use a mig, but you need the spool gun for it. It costs like 900 bucks to buy it. You can do it with a tig welder, but it takes some skill and allot of practice, more so then a mig gun.
