I need a small bit of welding done on a saw case. Send me a PM if you do this kind of work and are interested. Thanks.

What is involved when welding magnesium. I have a split shaft coupling I would like to fix. Is it something the average guy with a mig or tig could do?

If you can tig aluminum, you can tig magnesium. AC high frequency is best, but it can be done on DC with helium. Filler is $239 per pound around here. It's not difficult if you have some time under a hood, but it's pricey to get started.

You need AZ filler rod (cost around $2-3 a rod-yeah I'm not kidding) and an AC Tig.
Ta, thanks my brother is into welding and has migs & tigs I just wanted to know what I should buy to weld magnesium. AZ filler rods! If I come armed with them, I should get my two little jobs done!

Hey Kevin, have you done any Mag?

At least for me, the filler likes to ball up more than aluminum. I think that's how Shaun does a lot of freehand build ups.
