Kenny, I have kicked around getting a spool setup or even a push pull gun for my wire feed but at that point you’re still limiting yourself to thicker metals and large diameter piping. For me, I need to be able to do anything from “pop can” thin to about 3/8” along with large and small diameter tubing. When I put my 33 together I had to cut the aluminum thermostat housing and take it to the local welding shop. When I got it back I was not impressed with the quality of weld. They had taken it and welded it using a spool gun and I still had to go back and clean up the inside and outside of the weld. It had to have had a 1/8” weld profile which was just not going to work. Needless to say, I have not taken anything back to him.
