Has anyone tried the spool gun to weld aluminum or other metals?

If you've watched Jody's videos you'll know his friend JD Brewer uses a 210mp for FCAW-S and I found one video of him using a spool gun for aluminum. Video HERE

You won't see much in this vid, but having watched the videos with Jody and JD, I know JD thinks highly of the 210

Once you adjust your settings for a given metal thickness and wire diameter. it saves those settings. Even if you switch to a different thickness setting when you go back to the other thickness it will hold your settings.
I have more questions than answers

Not sure if you purchased yet, but you might want to check out Esab's Rebel, I've heard some good things on those also. My garage is filled with mostly blue boxes but I do have one of ESAB's first gen inverters that I bought back in the early 90's SVI300I and a MIG 4HD and It does have a very sweet arc. It's going on 24 years old, who says inverters don't last! LOL
I probably just put a mojo on myself for mentioning that!! :lol:
