Default More tig play

OK, went out and stretched out the time between dips with the fillets, see attachments.

Equipment: Lincoln PT 275 & Argon
Filler : 1/8" 4043 & 5356 & Diamond ground brown tungsten.

What seems to happen with the 4043 is I have to hit the heat just right or she will glaze over with I think too much cleaning. Not yet able to fill fast enough to compensate for this heat and the welds will be sink and go convex. Anyway just a WAG.

KB, so I stretched out the time between dips and pushed the puddle further than I did with the fillets over in your 'bender' thread.

thanks for the compliments . Starting to get on the other side of the 'practice curve' moving away from the frustration side to the fun side.

Semi-related; so I'm browsing the net looking for aluminum tig topics, and I run accross this:
http://www.millerwelds.com/education...articles43.php

And in this article are two videos one showing the 200mhz (inverters) and the other showing 60mhz (transformers)

http://www.millerwelds.com/education...e=NOWNDRMV.mov

http://www.millerwelds.com/education...e=ARCWNDRM.mov

Now I will admit all the cool stuff around welding machines are the inverters, but they really went out of their way to show transformers in a bad light. I know the arc likes to hunt sometimes, but I think it is exaggerated a bit in this video.

It looks like they turned on the pulse for the 60mhz video, and whoever is using that torch is not even trying to point his tungsten at the root, he is up and down the joint- everywhere but holding steady in the middle. Now see how steady the 200mhz torch is...

Then again there is that Dynasty 700

home-made torch holder, made from some of the 1/8" practice material. Clamps to work surface as shown.

Default ER4043 session

The filler 4043 was not working for me like the 5356 stuff, but I have lots of the 4043, so spent what welding time I had today using it.

Scott, you can see I have not got around to swapping out the Binzel torch for the Weldtec model I had to have ,but the Binzel is proving to be a decent torch. The leather CK hose cover needs something to hold it up closer to the gun because it has moved down several inches.

I just use a ziptie to hold mine up. Just rotate the end so it does not dig into
your hand. With the superflex hoses it's not bad to leave it loose for extra
movement.

Ray your fillets are looking real good!!!

I was thinking that Ray's family probably thinks he was abducted by aliens.

Thanks, took about the whole 300 sized argon cylinder, and tip from KB to get the appearance the beads are showing.

The wife has expressed concern with my obsessive behavior, but the core problem was me skipping out on doing the dishes.
