165 amps, arc force set to 10 using a Lincoln PowerMIG 210mp. We decided to use some leftover rods so that we show lots of restarts because being able to make a good restart is a fundamental skill... especially in overhe...
Aerospace TIG Welding Test on Stainless
Aerospace tig welding tests almost always involve a fixture like the one shown in this video. Little details like how you place the chill bars can make a big difference.
Even though it would be rare to weld plain 304 stainless for aerospace, the tips still apply.
Typical test material for th...
Pretty Welds are Not Always Good Welds
In this vdieo, I use a few different tig welding techniques to demonstrate that a pretty weld is not always a good weld. Filler rod size and technique are key factors.
