Default Gas welding aluminium

Hi all I am old school and I never use aluminium rods I only use thin strips of the aluminium that I am welding,I agree it is best to flux edges and I use small circular motion on torch,the filler rod is only there for tacks,and if I need to remove excess heat from weld area. I never grind welds only a body file after planishing.
As for goggles my old goggles where about thirty five years old and I was having trouble finding a suitable replacement,I did not want visor although I now wear glasses for close up work, so I purchased a visor and cut It down to fit my flip up goggles this means I now have enough visor left to change the lens two or three more times.
