I wouldn't try to weld your 40D. It's made of magnesium, when the

Haa haa - after reading thousands of antagonistic posts on this
forum, I finally had a hearty laugh at this one.
Well done!!!

Regretfully, it is same "well-done" as many other posts in this and
other threads. Magnesium alloys are weldable, using TIG torch and
other methods.

Yes, Iliah, I did know that. Excuse me for stretching reality a little for the sake of a joke
