Yes, the Miller Spoolmate 150 that comes with the welding machine can handle both mild steel and aluminum.

The miller syncrowave 210 is completely air-cooled. But, if you wish you can buy a separate add on water cooler.

What size tungsten does this machine take?

Miller Syncrowave 210 TIG/MIG uses a 17 series TIG torch which is capable of using up to a 1/8 tungsten.

Our Recommendation

The miller syncrowave is an excellent multiprocess welding machine that can not only be used for MIG, spool welding but also for AC/DC TIG welding.

It is a good tool for both home use and commercial use. It works flawlessly when used on aluminum, steel and stainless steel.

Though there are other multiprocess that are cheaper, with the Syncrowave it is possible to do AC/DC TIG welding without buying a separate TIG welding unit.

Well, according to us Miller has thought through this model. And though there are some drawbacks I would argue there are far more benefits. So, if you have some extra cash to spend then buying this tool wouldn’t be a bad choice.
