Does anybody know how to weld alminium or zinc ?



I use to make some fashion jewelery and I can't manage to fix definitively aluminium thread or zinc plates. cyano acrylate is not durable, and I thought about welding, but I don't know how to process... Thanks for any help.

    first ... it is almost impossible to weld aluminum because it melts so fast...I would solder with aluminum solder or if combining aluminum with other metals...braze them/ I suggest youtube...there are videos on both subjects.

    So I disagree with John because my husband welds aluminum for a living so it can be welded but you have to do it with a tig welder

      There are 3 types of welder you can buy the most common being a stick welder then there is a mig welder which uses wire and finally a tig welder which is by far the most expensive to buy . Look on miller or Lincoln site and they show you what is available to purchase and the differences in them
