This is some serious gravy work.
I have a lot of rounds parts to weld for a customer.

Any time I get round parts to weld, I prefer to use my turntable.

For this video, I am using an AHP alphatig 200x tig welder.
I bought my turntable off ebay several years ago and it is part of a welding lathe setup.
for this video, I am only using the positioner portion of the lathe but in future segments, i will set up the whole system with a tail stock and torch holder. read more

Silicon Bronze has a much lower melting point than carbon steel and that allows for less heat input and less distortion. read more

That begins with a boiling degreaser, then rinse water, then black oxide coating, then rinse again, and then a penetrating oil followed by an oven bake. read more

Dual Shield Flux Core Welding Basics

see part 2 here

flux core

BAsics of Dual Shield Flux Core Welding.
In this video, I discuss the importance of using the right drive rollers, the right size contact tip and stickout, the right polarity for E71t-1 wire, Resources for the right settings, and more…

the technique for flat and horizontal tee joints is pretty simple….just drag it in there.
But for vertical uphill welding with dual shield flux core, a slight manipulation of the arc using a series of triangles worked best for me. read more
