Welding Zimmer frames?!!!
Please don't laugh, but our local dump has a seemingly endless and very cheap supply of Zimmer frames - an attractive source of pre-curved and straight aluminium tubing that would fit the bill for a project I'm considering. What I do not know, and cannot find out, is can this particular alloy be TIG-welded?
If I had to guess I would say that any al-alloy that can be bent is likely to be low strength, and most of these can be welded. Anybody know for sure?
Thanks in advance, Carl.
