What better way to start off than MIG welding aluminum right? Went from one of the biggest mistakes possible to respectable in an hour or so.
No pictures because I forgot my last sample at work. Also got to see what it looks like when you get it way way too hot (not my mistake even), aka what molten aluminum does when it drops 4 feet onto the ground, thankfully a safe distance from landing on any shoes. Makes for a nice thin splash sheet.
