Aluminum is NOT as Forgiving.

That’s good to know, I guess.  It’s GREAT to know if you are in the auto body repair business!  Cleaning your weld surface and keeping everything you do as clean as possible is very important Taking extra steps to clean your parts as thoroughly as possible will help you make a clean and strong weld.  That’s the bottom line at our shop.

Patience is tantamount when engaging in the art of aluminum welding.  A big mistake we see that beginner aluminum welders make when learning how to weld aluminum is not waiting for the puddle to fully initiate.  You learn that the welder actually cleans the base metal before the aluminum turns molten. 

Honestly, you don’t need to know any of this.  What you DO need to know is the name and location of the auto body repair shop in the Louisville area who takes aluminum welding very seriously.  The answer is The Don Embry Body Shop at 8272 Dixie Highway.  When you need us we will be there.  You can call ahead at (502) 935-1373.
