    That's some badass aluminum welding for a finger switch. I pedal a TON when I'm welding aluminum, so welding some old, oil and dirt soaked casting with a finger switch is impressive to say the least!

    It's a good thing you didn't get a closer look lol. I never use the pedal for anything except aluminum so I'm pretty used to it. I love the finger switch for steel and stainless.
