Are you going to use a spoolgun? I tried doing aluminum with my 175T once without. Even with a teflon liner it was a feeding mess. I would not think you are going to weld very much with only 140A

OCWeld, now you see why we've always tried to insist that you post your location in your user profile.
Nowdays its required when new members register but you slipped in under the wire.

Please open your user control panel and type in your location; as you can see, it matters a lot if other members can see where you're coming from.
Posting it one time in a reply really isn't the same thing.
