both freehand and cup walking techniques are used.
TIG WELDING AWS D17.1 2G .063" STAINLESS STEEL PRACTICE TEST
This is A practice weld using 304L stainless steel in .063" thickness.
usually other alloys like 17-7ph, 15-7ph, are used for this test but the same techniques apply across the board
3G Stainless TIG Welding Practice for AWS D17.1 Aerospace weld tests
AWS D17.1 is the specification for aerospace fusion welding.
It is common for 1G tests to be done in aerospace welding certification because shops often have positions and manipulators that can pretty much get every weld in the flat position.
But sometimes employers require a 2G and or a 3G tes...
1G AEROSPACE PRACTICE TEST PLATE .038" at 48 AMPS
Video shows a 1G AEROSPACE PRACTICE TEST USING COLD ROLLED STEEL 038" at 48 AMPS.
Also compares using pulse settings to straight current.
If you are thinking about an aerospace welding job, edge beads are a great way to practice for a lot of the common tasks in aerospace tig welding.
And as far ...

6G Welding Test - Monster Coupon (Part 1)
The monster coupon is a fairly common test given because it qualifies for a greater range of diameters and thickness. This video shows some techniques for the root.
6G Welding Test - Monster Coupon (Part 2) 7018 3/32" stick welding
The monster coupon is a fairly common test given because it qualifies for a greater range of diameters and thickness. This video shows some techniques for the stick fill and cap and body positioning tips.
TIG Welding Aluminum Tips on a Fixture Plate
A laser cut aluminum star provides lots of different angles and opportunity to learn things like hand position
How to TIG Weld Aluminum - Part 1
There is a lot to talk about.
things like tungsten electrodes..type and size ( i like 2% lanthanated for everything and 3/32 takes care of most of my daily welding)
shielding gases ...argon is best to start but if you begin to specialize in thicker aluminum, it might make sense to use a blend of ...
TIG Welding Aluminum with Different Waveforms
The current waveforms are advanced square wave, soft square wave, sine wave, and triangle wave.
They all have slightly different looks, sounds and characteristics.
Some waveforms are supposed to be better for thin metals, others for thicker metals.
There is another advanced feature on a very few...
How to TIG Weld Aluminum - Part 2
Questions about AC balance, AC frequency, tungsten electrodes, shielding gases, techniques for feeding wire, how to keep a tight arc without dipping in the puddle, and a lot more.
While I figure out the best way to answer as many questions as possible, I have to start by answering just a few of t...
Tips for Passing Your Aluminum TIG Welding Test D17.1 spec
You’ve probably read how aluminum needs to be really cleaned thoroughly before welding.
A lot of aluminum can be tig welded without doing a whole lot of cleaning it really depends on the application.
For general fabrication, often times a wipe with acetone or alcohol will do the trick if the me...
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...
TIG Welding Aluminum 1G Butt and 2F Tee
This Video gives tips for TIG welding a 1G flat butt joint and how to watch the puddle sink to make sure you are getting penetration,
A tee joint fillet weld test in 11 ga thickness usually requires penetration into the root but not all the way thru the back side
