Filler rod for 4130.


Robert, There are traps with using 4130 and you should use or consult with, a qualified aircraft welder. I can't place my material on the forum, (due to its source,& technical/metallurgical complexity) and I'm not going to take the responsibility of reformatting it, as I'm not qualified. The job has to be done properly or you can end up with a brittle weld which would be totally unsafe in an aircraft environment, particularly.


If you have a lot to do, perhaps you would consider doing a welding course, though if you told them it was for aircraft they would probably freak out. Funny that! Must be a message there somewhere. Cheers Nev..
