I bought the WeldPak 100 from Eastwood, which came with the gas
conversion kit, which is a good thing, because welding with Argon/CO2
gas is the way to go.  Flux-core welding is messy and difficult on sheet
metal.  They say you can weld aluminum if you use pure argon gas, but
then I'd have to buy another gas bottle.  I wouldn't give up my wire
welder for anything.
