TIG Welding – “The Aluminum Drill” Revisited

In this video, I’m padding aluminum beads. It’s some of the best practice you can get. I call this the aluminum drill. I’ve done versions of this before. I never was happy with the way they came out, so this time, I put a lot of care into it, and I’m using a Furick clear number eight cup, so you can … it just kind of lights everything up. You can see everything a lot better, and that makes it more instructional, so let’s do it. read more

Tig Brazing a Steel Cube

Today I’m doing a little work with silicon bronze. This is a part two video of that cube. I’m trying to make the cube look cool now, now that I’ve got a single tig pass in there with weld metal I’m going to buff it all down with a wire wheel so it’s shiny bright metal. That’s important when you’re using silicon bronze, to have nice clean bright metal to flow it over. But now I’m just trying to make it look cool so that somebody would want to use it for a paper weight, or a conversation piece, or whatever. So I’m going to flow silicon bronze in those outside corners and then I’m going to come back and we’ll talk about some of the other uses of silicon bronze. Let’s do it. read more

TIG Welding Steel Cube

HToday, I’m doing a little TIG welding. I’m gonna weld up a little three-inch square cube, outside corner joints. It’s quarter-inch thick metal, three inches by three inches. So it takes six pieces to do that with. That gives me plenty of welds to experiment with different filler wire types, sizes, pulse settings. Let’s do it. read more

More walking the cup TIG Welding Tips

In a previous video I welded up some pieces of box tubing to some base plates just because I had them laying around. I thought it would be a good little lesson on tie ins and things like that. Well, I had that piece laying around, didn’t know what to do with it, so I thought, I’ll put a second pass on there and we’ll talk a little bit about walking the cup and how to select the right cup size for that, because that is kind of important. read more

Tig Welding Bead Restarts

Today, we’re talking about TIG welding restarts. You’re welding along and you have to stop for whatever reason, and you have to start again. That’s a restart, and you’d like to be able to make your restarts in such a way that you can’t really tell. So if you have to stop five times even in a six-inch run, it looks pretty much like there is one continuous bead. That’s the goal anyway, and that’s what we’re going to be talking about today. I’m going to try to show some real up close shots of the restart and describe what’s going on so that you’ll have a method in your mind on making consistent restarts. Also, I’m going to talk about something called the three-second rule. Let’s get into it. read more
