One question I do have is, do I need a different welder for aluminum? Can't I just buy aluminum welding wire?
You can technically.... If you run pure argon. Which you can not do seeing you have a flux core.

Problem is mig won't feed the wire correctly its to soft you need a push pull gun or spool gun.

Most people don't weld aluminum with mig. And if they do for anything that really matters they use a welder like the millermatic 350p.

If you want to do aluminum you need to learn tig
