Also curious- what amp range are you using for that thickness of aluminum?
It looks like there would be some way to retrofit your model for a pedal or even a finger remote of some sort. I'm no expert, but someone should know.
Cyberweld and BR welding supplies out of MD (I think that's right) have helped me in the past for figuring things out. Just add dot com to cyberweld, and the other folks have a strong presence on ebay...
