    ^ Yes there are, along Sukhumvit near Ocean Portofino on the same side. Or perhaps one of the Auto accessory places that sell them could suggest somewhere?.

    Stainless = DC . Ally needs AC = .

    Just because they can tig stainless does not means they have the machine to tig alloy.

    Good Aluminum welders are hard to find...I doubt any you find will actually have "qualifications."

    TIG welders are DC. I think aluminium needs an AC welder. Otherwise I could do it.

    Edit: Sorry to state the obvious I should have read a bit more

    Here Kurgen go & I looked on the anther Chanel
    I found this

    Aluminium welding in Pattaya


    My factory is at Sattahip and we can weld aluminium, TIG or MIG. I don't normally do jobbing work but if it is only one weld I can help you out. You can PM me for details. If Ocean Marina is closer then, by all means talk to Murray at Gold Coast Ships. I am sure he would help you out.

    PS Me think Betty AC/DC 555

    can be done using gas. acetylene alone to blacken the area to be welded then with the oxygen apply heat until the black covering begins to disappear. when that happens be ready with your ally rod to start welding the crack. simple.

    Cheers for all the replies chaps. It's only a busted weld on a bracket so I'm sure it'll be a piece of piss for someone with the right gear.

    Screw a bracket over the broken section.

    I am going to moan about your lack of solving you own problems.

    Now where is your daily moan thread so I can moan about you?

    need to add that the oxy flame should not be coned as in welding steel
    the oxy tip should be around 2 inches long (using number 3 nozzle)
    otherwise you could blow a bigger crack if it's too fierce.
