  • TIG Is Handy

    Two pieces of scrap tubing "fused" together. TIG 3/32 tungsten @ 90 Amps.
    Note; the pieces have a rounded corners so there will be more undercutting.
    Do this many times when I don't think a rod is necessary.

    I do this on stainless, but not on steel, my experience is that on steel it tends to crack. Another thing that has helped me as I travel, is to sweep back and forth in line with the direction of travel to keep my bead straight. That's real critical in the aircraft stuff I do. There are several joint designs used in aircraft welding that use no filler metal. Like the outside corner, and standing flange weld. I enjoy your posts O.O., keep 'em coming!
